Being the social butterfly that I am, I go to a lot of parties. Most of which involve buying a present for a small child.
And after, I can always guarantee that I'll get a thank you card, written by "the child" which says:
"Thank you so much for [insert toy name]! I really like playing with it."
It's a nice thought, but I think we can skip the cards. It's a waste of paper and energy. I mean, do I really care if I get a stupid form-letter thank you card? And the whole thing means that I have to keep stacks of blank thank you cards in my bookcase, for fear of offending someone.
And don't get me started on those fancy bags every present has to come with these days.
P.S. Don't forget that if you have an Amazon Prime account, you can borrow The Devil Wears Scrubs free on the Kindle! Not sure how long this promotion will last though.
