Re: Do you get annoyed when you receive "inexpensive" Holiday Cards?

OMG!!! People really worry about the quality of the cards. They should be more than happy somebody is thinking of them to even send them a darn card....ugh.Chat Icon I like to send out nice cards but I always feel honored to get a card from someone no matter the quality.

Re: Do you get annoyed when you receive "inexpensive" Holiday Cards?

This is BY FAR the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. No, I do not care what kind of card I get for Christmas. It is just nice to be on someone's list.

I hope your relative gets some perspective FAST and realizes that there are SO MANY other things to be concerned about.

Sounds like she's a piece of work.Chat Icon

Re: Do you get annoyed when you receive "inexpensive" Holiday Cards?

Seriously?!???
Wow.. what a sad world we live in if people actually get OFFENDED at getting a xmas card (of any quality).

Now.. talk to me about getting a randomly selected unrelated utterly BLANK in the inside card for a birthday and I'll share a giggle but even then, since a check was included, I dont care if its wrapped in a sticky note! Chat Icon They obviously thought enough to put a stamp on it.

If I knew this relative with the nose so far up the air she can't sell the poop she's standing in, I'd be sure to send her a post card next year saying "Merrry Xmas" instead of a card at all! But im odd like that. I'd be sure it was one of those cheap by it on the side walk types. I'd use a crayon and not sign in (like Love so-and-so) just Merry xmas. Then say "I was saving for a better xmas present for my husband" lol

Sorry but that's crazy!

I chose other because I don't really keep track of who sends a card one year vs the next and I'm definitely not looking at the quality. That's bizarre Chat Icon

Haha I don't care but I definitely "notice" when one is especially cheapo, lol. I wonder if they even looked at them at all or just put them in their basket and moved on.

That's how ridiculous it is..that we are all in shock.

Tell your relative or whomever to build a bridge and get over it. Oh, and get a life.

I don't hang up the glitter cards. Im sorry but as soon as I see that they have glitter, I see who they are from and then throw them away. That glitter can last forever.

Re: Do you get annoyed when you receive "inexpensive" Holiday Cards?

I would never get annoyed about receiving any card. This is the only time of year I actually look forward to the mail being delivered every day. I do admit though that I do notice the nicer cards- professional pics, paper quality, etc... It doesn't make me think more or less of the sender, that's just something I notice.

I'm surprised that there are actually some people that voted they DO get offended! Some people really just have waaaayyy too much time on their hands. It's pretty sad and pathetic.

Re: Do you get annoyed when you receive "inexpensive" Holiday Cards?

Nope it wouldn't even cross my mind. I don't care what the card looks like or even if someone sends me one at all. I'm terrible & don't even bother sending them out-- I only receive from like 5 people anyway, probably people cut me from their lists because I never send any out Chat Icon Maybe I'll do some this week if I get around to it but probably not Chat Icon
