That said, quite a few people are small minded and idiotic when it comes to thank you notes. Here are three simple rules that should be remembered at all times.
- The heartfelt thank you note is a beautiful thing.
- The expectation of a thank you note is a petty and stupid thing.
- Gossiping about the absence of an expected thank you note is a vile and thoroughly disgusting thing.
This is not the first time I have written about the tyranny of the thank you note.
I have proposed the Matthew Dicks Law of Thank You Notes before.
They are all valid arguments, but when in doubt, stick to the 3 rules and you can’t go wrong.
