This year I was unable to make it to a distant cousin's wedding. Instead of having a gift registry, she was very specific in requesting "cash donations only" (tacky in and of itself). So I sent a generous cash amount. Well, its been almost 3 months and I have yet to receive a thank you! After speaking with some family members, it turns out she emailed a few people and facebooked some others saying "thank you", but I guess she doesn't have my email address so I was S.O.L on getting any kind of acknowledgement or thank you.
In addition, I must vent that I have attended a few baby showers (over the past couple years) and bought gifts, but never to receive any thank you!
Am I blowing this out of proportion? I think it is SOOOO rude to not even send a thank you note, especially if someone went out of their way to mail you something generous, and then you can't even say "thanks". I mean, c'mon, they could have just not sent you anything! I'm almost thinking "thank you emails" are kind of tacky too.
Thanks for listening.... *putting soapbox away*... I feel a little better now.
