If you got a gift for the holidays, and you love it… or hate it… or wish it hadn’t come broken…
write a note of thanks.
Someone gave you that.
And even if they blindly grappled flotsam and jetsam off of the garage shelves and handed it to you unwrapped (and with a price tag still attached… two days late) – they still thought of you.
You’d rather not have their “thoughts”?
Write the note anyway.
Being ungrateful is more reprehensible than being cheap and thoughtless.
