yeah, i mean youre right, it is in good manners, thus why I do it. I really don’t know why it doesnt bother me if people don’t send me one in return. I’m not very laid back, maybe weird,  lol! 🙂

I’ve noticed this fall by the wayside as well. In the past year alone, I’ve been to four baby showers (two of which I also brought food and helped set up, in addition to a gift).

No thank you cards for any of them. I mean sure, they SAID thank you right after opening it, but what ever happened to a hand-written note? Facebook has ruined common courtesy.

It is just plain rudeness I fear. I just make a little mental note and when future events arrise with the same rude people, I do not respond or participate. My memory works very well.

I agree, it’s rude not to send thank you cards. For a family member’s wedding, they took months to send out thank you cards and when they did, they had labels printed saying something along the lines of “thanks for making such a special day for us” no personal note, not one signautre, nothing. now that is plain lazy and rude.

For one couple, I received a thank you letter for their engagement (gave a rice cooker), then another thank you in the mail for her girls night/ bridal shower (spent over $120 chipping in on dinner and booze).

However the biggest gift of all ($350) at the wedding was met by silence. Felt like we were no longer required after all their events were over and done with! Then the next time I heard from the bride again, she wanted us to attend another event she was throwing. I’ll give it a miss.
