I know plenty of Bees will disagree with me, but I just hate thank you notes. They’re a pain to write and I barely skim ones I receive! I really wish our society would just retire them for good! I’d much rather just bake people a batch of cookies with a “Thanks” tag attached.
What are pieces of etiquette you would love to skip (or maybe some you are skipping!)?

I 2nd Thank You notes. They are such a pain to write and always sound really forced. I wish people would just give gifts and accept a verbal ‘thank you’ the next time they see or speak to the happy couple.

I’m with you on the thank you notes. I never even expect one in the mail when I give a gift. It just never crosses my mind. Besides, I never know what to say when someone gives me something that I only use once or twice…or never. The same when the item doesn’t have many purposes or if it’s money.
I always thank people verbally when I receive a gift.
If, like you said, I could just bake cookies and send a little card that just says ‘thank you for (said item)’, I would love it. I love baking cookies more than writing notes.
I’m sure there are more etiquette rules I would love to get rid of, but I can’t think of any right now. I should really be getting back to my work anyway. I’ll post again if I think of more.

I personally hate the RSVP anything! Its annyoing and pointless… plus its just a way to cost extra money..
I think i may try online RSVPing.

sending R.s.v.p stamp envelopes. It should be the etiquette that when you recieve a formal invitation you should be able to R.s.v.p. on your own however you want without needing someone to send you a stamped envelope.
