I was talking about this with a fellow teacher today. Long story short, I stopped giving my students birthday parties, buying them McDonalds/pizza/etc., buying clothes, etc. because most of the time I do not get a thank you or I get a stapler thrown at my head.

I only do these things for one student who is very appreciative of everything my staff and I give him.

Happens every time I hold a contest or send someone something. Sometimes I get a thanks but most of the time I do not. I am good at remembering who I sent something to and whether or not I received a thanks or not.

I make a selling thread saying "firm" in the first post or title. Next post is "what's your best price?".

You suck!

Joking, you don't even know me.

I've only given away cards five times here, and only twice have I received a thank you. I'm not asking for you to return the favor and give me cards, I'm not asking for money, and I'm not asking for public resignation. All I want is a "thanks for the card". It's just common courtesy.

This is me indirectly calling those who out didn't thank me. You know who you are.

I can't stand it when people don't say thank you for a free card. I thank someone if they sell me a card, or if they buy from me.
And then you have the people who turn around and flip the stuff they get for free.

And guess what? You're not invited!

It's an extreme honor to not be invited to your party!
In celebration however...

I'm with you on this.

I certainly don't want or expect a thread celebrating what I've done for someone. But a simple thank you PM accomplishes two things:

1) I know they have received the card(s)
2) Shows some real appreciation for your gesture

If I've sent out 15 freebie packages, I bet I've received maybe five notes of thanks afterwards. Certainly won't stop me from continuing to do it, but I cannot imagine not thanking someone for sending me cards for free.

I've had one deal with the OP, and I will say thank you again for thinking of me with that Pacific Dynagon Plate and the very reasonable price!
