I wouldn’t send an e-mail, and I actually think it’s shitty that the boss is upset that you didn’t send in a “thank you e-mail”..like really?  The fact that you sent in a real life Thank You card for a job interview is plenty.

“Good afternoon Ms. Interviewer:

 just a quick note here in case my snail mail goes astray…

I wanted to thank you so much for meeting with me the other day.  I’m really excited about the opportunity to parther with your company (or other such flatterring nonsesnse), and I look forward to discussing my future contributions with you.

I’m available at (contact info), and I look forward to any additional questions you may have for me.”

I’m not sure what you should do now.  But I’ve always heard that now you should be sending thank you emails because oftentimes the interviewer is making the hiring decision so quickly, and emails are instant.  Either that, or have one pre-written and leave it with the secretary on your way out.

@MissNoodles:  I think that’s perfect!

OP, I always sent e-mail thank you notes as soon as I finished the interview. It never even occured to me that people sent physical thank you notes.

I usually do both email and snail mail just because email is so instantenous, but snail mail is becoming more and more rare. It seems like overkill but sometimes it seems necessary, too.
