So, I think it's still necessary to send a little hand written note. I'm told wedding gifts are 1 year, tho. SMH. People are less than grateful. I got $20, $5, etc for my wedding, and still sent out llittle notes.

Heck, even an email shows acknowlegement.
That is the crux of the matter
Not always so. My kids were raised that they could not spend or play with a new gift until the thank you was written. Son #1 had their wedding thank you cards done within a couple of days. Son #2 took over 6 months with some "encouraging" fro mom.
Honestly, i am quite put out by this. I don't care if "current norms" preclude a thank you card. Common courtesy says that you acknowledge a kindess done on your behalf.
I quite agree with you on this. Sadly, it seems to be a generational point of view. Somewhere between the time we were raised and the current times, there has been a general disconnect in social mores. Growing up, my Mom gave me seven days to write thank you notes; when I got married, the expected standard was 30 days.
Jo ANN Fabric Store will not bag your stuff you buy.
I was in ours yesterday and they're still bagging in Tucson. Would hate for them to stop.
I was telling Laura about it and she said Jo Ann does where she live Peoria ,PH area does.

Normal rant in my books.. I always send a thank you and taught my kids to do the same.
Granted, my two oldest grandsons 12 &10 will text me a Thank you in ALL CAPS with the emoji of a hug... And at Christmas they take photo's with my gifts and text right away. Not the "paper" notes we used.. but at least they do acknowledge.
I’ve always wondered how much was left over after a lottery win. She was taxed harder bc she was single, correct?
she is single but I don't know if that is the reason.
