So my brother and new sister in law are home for xmas. They are working on their thank you notes (which are 8 months late and would be longer if not for my mother’s nagging). They tend to be very rude so I peeked at the thank yous they had finished, and many read:
“thank you for _____, however we traded it in for the _______ we liked.”
Gahhh! It sounds rude! You are not suppose to say your returned things. You don’t need to lie and say how you used it, but these thank you notes sound snotty and insincere. I’m upset because many of the guests are MY family.

Oh my god. I cannot BELIEVE they would write that! I am lying through my teeth in our e-gift thank you notes about how everything is amazing and matches our house perfectly when we’re actually selling it all on ebay because nothing came with gift receipts (and really – how many different bowls can one couple own). Good lord!

OMG how could they be so ignorant to say that!?! YIKES! I would definitely say something to them!

Oh wow, I would say something, too! Yikes..can’t even imagine receiving a thank-you card like that! That’s extremely rude. Does your mother know what is written?

Wow. They might not care enough to change it. But I would definitely tell them that you looked at their thank you notes to get ideas ofr stationary for your wedding, and noticed what they wrote. I’d outright tell them that a lot of people would be offended. They don’t need to know what was done with their gift.

I can’t even believe that people have no clue as to how rude they are when writing something like that…..and then to top it off, they are very late in sending out thank-you’s. I think I would rather not even get a thank you, then to have one sent to me stating that they exchanged it for something else. WOW!!

I would maybe say something to your mom. I can’t believe they would actually put that down. EESH.

SAY SOMETHING for sure! At least you’ll know you tried. Try to be all casual about it, but please for their guest’s sake say smoething!

I think those who suggested talking to your mom have the right idea, no WAY should those go out to guests!!

If I got a thank you note like that, I’d be shocked at first then I would be LMAO and snarking on it with my friends over how declasse they were!!!!

What are they, three years old? Even schoolkids know it’s rude to tell someone you don’t like their gift!

Holy crap! Someone needs to say something. I would be appalled if I got a Thank You note that said that.
