Went to a baby shower a couple months ago. It was co-ed and just knowing the couple AND the hosts- it was definitely more of a party than it was a shower. So I wasn't surprised that there wasn't a gift opening. I was having a good time, getting to see people I hardly ever see - it was all good.
Probably about 6 weeks later, the baby is finally born. Still haven't gotten a thank you.
THEN we get the birth announcement. A photocard from shutterfly and preprinted on it is a message to the effect of "Thank you for your support and generosity".
I read it a couple times and I realized - "THIS is our thank you".
Seriously? There was no written message or signature. Just a 100% pre-printed card.
And while I initially didn't care that they didn't open the gifts, when I got this as our thank you, I was actually now a bit annoyed. I didn't even get a genuine thank you from them at any point.
These are people who I really thought would know better.
