self-addressed thank you cards
A huge pet peeve of mine is after spending hours on a hot summer's day going from store to store to find just the right gift and spending a nice amount of money, only to arrive at the bridal shower and have someone hand me an evelope I am to address to myself.
My response is to hand it back and say nicely with a bit of humor,"the only thing I self-address is a postcard from my gynecologist."
Am I completely old-school in thinking this is the height of crassness? The bride-to-be can't take the time to write my name and address on an evelope? After spending $$$ and time I get to receive a thank you that I filled out?
Sorry to vent, but I remember my wedding 25 years ago and being thankful that Emily Post said I had six months to send thank-you's. That way, I had the time to write each and every person--in my own handwriting.
