Text etiquette takes thanks to new levels

By tdotcspot     Jan 9, 2007 in Lifestyle
Manners experts are reluctant to endorse text-message thank-you notes as replacements for old-fashioned cards.
Reuters has the story.
According to Reuters, thank-you notes, an expression of polite gratitude, were on the decline. That is, until the evolution of e-mail, and more recently, texting.
But Peter Post, of the Emily Post Institute says that although a thank-you sent via text message is better than nothing, it still doesn't compare to an old-fashioned handwritten card.
However, others argue that texting offers apathetic teens and others who wouldn't normally bother with a card to say thank you for their gifts.
