Excuse Me While I Run to the Toilet [to Vomit]

I just took a plane from Houston to New York. I wish I would have thought to grab the barf bag.

There is actually a company that will write your thank-you cards for you:

"Whatever your event, we’ll take care of every detail -- from designing the card, composing the note (welcoming any input you may want to give) and addressing and stamping every envelope. Thank Goodness has thought of everything. We’re even able to turn your handwriting into a computer font from a sample you supply, so each card looks like it came right from your own hand. We will send your complete order to you, unsealed, so you can proof every note and mail them from your home zip code. Wonderful, isn’t it!"

Really? Seriously?

People actually lie to their friends and family? They fake them out by uploading their handwriting, having someone else write the cards, and mailing them from their own zip code? Seriously?


I can't even bring myself to share the link. What if I inadvertently give them business?

I think I'll start licking every thank-you card I get to see if the ink actually bleeds.

This is the most insincere and inauthentic thing I've seen in a quite a while.

Agreed. What kind of people out there know that they should write thank you notes but don't understand the REASON they should write thank you notes? It's terrible.

If you can't even write your thank you note; you don't deserve the presents you got. That's all I've got to say.
You can take all the time you need but they should come from the heart and not be done by someone else.

I love your blog by the way.

Totally agree. I can see how this could be appealing to someone like a working mom with four kids, no husband and two jobs. It certainly takes all of the effort out of doing something thoughtful. Which is sad in and of itself.

That is horrible. Good call not including the link.

I got into a car accident last year and my friend sent me get-well card that was through a service like this. I knew right away that it wasn't her handwriting and felt a little bit cheated that she didn't make the time to just write my name, sign and address it! What a waste of money. If you can't write your own card, just don't do it!
