Never have I been so tempted to write to Miss Manners. I just received an Evite mass e-thank-you note for a birthday party my child didn't attend, expressing appreciation for a non-existant gift.
This is just one of several "Dear Guest, thanks for the great present" group e-thanks I've gotten in the past few months.
We're all busy people, and it's a pain write out 30 thank you notes after you invite your child's entire preschool class to the party, but it is the gracious thing to do. Typing out a few lines and hitting the "send to group" button just isn't the same. I'd even be OK with an e-mailed thank you note, if it was an actual personal note.
Am I hopelessly stodgy or is anyone else mildly horrified by this?
