vanessa7:  I’m like you and those kinds of bad manners bother the hell out of me. I don’t hold it against old friends who I became friends with before manners mattered (high school friends), but it definitely affects new friendships. I would be hesitant to pursue a friendship with someone new if I felt their manners were lacking.

Oh my. I think it’s rude to skip out on thank yous but to spend the time and money to send out a postcard telling people why that haven’t received a thank you yet?! That’s ridiculous.

As far as the hostess present, I would let that go. I didn’t realize that was a thing until I came to the bee.  Even when I saw people gave them I didn’t realize that it was widespread. She may have forgotten you got her a gift or didn’t realize that it’s “polite.” Honestly, as a hostess I never ever expect a gift- it seems rather weird to me.

ETA: I didn’t even answer your question! I let it go with family. I haven’t experienced bad manners with any close friends but it has definitely affected the way I look at acquaintances and new friends.

I’m very bothered by bad manners. We’re pretty laid back people but it still pisses me off when people don’t acknowledge a gift we sent or when they don’t stick to the plan and do the no call/no show crap. I don’t know if I’m more lenient with family or friends…I think it really depends on the individual. Some people I expect more from and then there are those folks that you can almost bet every time that they will be rude about something.
