Default The - Thanks you suck thread

Just a quick "Thanks You Suck" to all those who I have given free cards to over the lasr 3 or 4 months who have not even bothered to take 30 seconds out of their very busy and important lives to say "Thank You".

As I was cleaning out my PM Box of over 700 messges I came upon 6 instances of this.

I don't want praise, I don't want reciprocation, I would just like a simple note of thanks.

/rant

Back to real life and death issues now.

kthanksbye

Sadly it seems this happens to me about 2/3s of the time as well. I have never dealt with you but appreciate your contributions to the boards.

A slightly funny joke for you.

Corbin and Jon are riding down the road when they see a goat with his head stuck in the fence. Jon gets out of the car to go and check on it. He confirms that the goat is stuck so he gets behind it and "goes to town."
When Jon finishes he asks Corbin, "Do you want to get in on this?" Corbin replies, "Absolutely, but do I have to stick my head in the fence?"

Jon, you know better than anyone here, that everyone you deal with is in the hospital because of a broken this, hurt that, death of so and so, car accident, meth lab exposion, pc blew up, 3g issues, ipad turned into a DOS 3.1 OS, etc.

I'm with you. I've sent out 100s of free packages over the years, most send a simple 'thanks,' which isn't required but its nice to receive.

I sent out about $100 worth of cards to a contest winner about 6 months ago and never heard a peep from the guy. Not even 'I received them.'

Same here. I had a contest once and gave away like 50$ in cards, not one came back with a thanks or got my item. Its a joke.

Also to jlzinck, I was involved in your Joe Savery travels the world!! thread and after the birth of my child I was not on the forum for some time and saw a post were you offered to send my boy some cards, sorry I never replied to that message in the thread. I only saw it like 2 wks ago and was going to pm you and just thank you for even offering to do something like that. You A+ in my book for just offering.

I've had that happen to me too, but focus on the appreciative members. Also if you feel down you can always send me stuff. I PC Mantle, Harper, Ruth and Trout ONLY. You hook me up with some free stuff and I'll send you a thank you. Heck, I'll even trap a goat in a fence for you!

See this is exactly why people on here should send free stuff to me.....I always say thank you!

By the way Jon.....thanks for being my secret santa! I posted the awesome cards in the official thread, but never said thanks directly to you because I wasn't sure if we were supposed to say who our santa was.























SIDE NOTE FOR EVERYONE ELSE......Awesome lot of Tigers and Lions cards for sale at a killer price. Sent send me a pm!

I know what you mean. I do not think I have ever not said thank you to anyone who hooked me up through either a PM or feedback, but I know I have not be thanked by some people who I hooked up. So goes life though, man. Some folks were raised right, while others take stuff for granted.

Wow, you're coming up on 10,000. Thanks for cluttering up the forums. You suck.

I have given away more cards than I can count. I think I get a thank you, or even a response that they got the cards maybe half the time. I was shocked that I didn't even get thank yous from everyone that I put into my 2 free group breaks. And most of those were hand picked members. (The members that were chosen by random, have both acknowledged receipt of their packages and said thank you).

I promise to say thank you to everyone who sends me free stuff. Except jlzinck whom I will thank in a more intimate way.

Thank You Jon. I have been waiting for this thread. If I started the thread my trollers would be in here instantly bashing me. I cannot even begin to tell you the amount of people I send free stuff too. Not only do I not even get a thank you but getting people to leave feedback is getting harder and harder as well.The best was when someone sent me a nice pc card for free awhile back. I sent them a 1/1 of a star player to show my appreciation. 3 days later I get a pm from them asking me if its ok if they sell the card.I appreciate that they asked but thought it was pretty crappy that they sold it. But whatever. I dont expect much more from people nowadays. Everyone thinks they are owed something in life. I send free cards in 9/10 packages I send. I maybe get a thank you 2/9 times, maybe..............

I'm still waiting for your "special" box package with your manhood. Once I get that I will thank you. FYI, once I'm done laughing at your package I will be regifting it to ilovethelakings.

Of course not. I still want to see if Adruw Jones would trade me his so that I can have your set. Then I will charge a kings ransom for Corbins Balls.

Preach on, brother! I know when I set up my "Pay It Forward" threads, I maybe got 20% who told me thank you, which lead me to stopping altogether. Of course, we don't do it for the acknowledgement, but it sure doesn't hurt to get a "thanks" after you've sent a guy an Aaron Rodgers RC /1000. Yeah, that guy didn't say thank you...

Also depleted my tOSU PC through a "If You Want Them They're Yours," thread, and out of the two guys that put their hands in the air, only one said thanks.
