Kat and Beth were talking about their grandchildren after the holidays.
Kat said, “My daughter-in-Iaw stopped making my grandchildren send their thank you notes. Each year I sent the grandchildren a card with a generous check inside. I always received a lovely thank you note.
However, since my daughter-in-Iaw stopped making the grandkids send thank you notes, I never hear from them.”
Beth said, “My daughter-in-Iaw never made the grandchildren send thank you notes. I, too, send them a very generous check. However, for the past several years, I hear from them within a week after they receive it. In fact, they each pay me a personal visit.”
“Wow,” remarked Kat. “I wish mine would do that.”
“You can, Kat, you can,” Beth said.
“How?” Kat asked.
“Simple,” Beth replied. “Do what I do: Don’t sign the check”
