Will you share your thank you notes?

Asked by Patty_Melt (17296points) November 18th, 2019

Some of you may never have seen Jimmy Fallon write his thank you notes, so I provided a link.
On the same premise, can you share thank you notes of your own?
I have given up on specifying no Trump mentions, because there are so many jellies who simply cannot follow instructions.
However, I would urge everyone to be somewhat more creative than that.

(I would submit that if we must not say things meant to offend persons of color, size, religion, how is it that when someone has specifically stated they are uncomfortable with a particular topic or attitude, it is just fine to ignore that request?)

I support anyone who supported me. Despite my ignorance.

I loved Michelle’s thank you notes to Barack. I loved that whole episode of Jimmy Fallon (which I’d never seen before.)

Thank you….
Santa Claus, for dropping us as soon as we move out no matter how good we are.

In my younger days, I would write short thank-you poems, maybe a verse or two, instead of notes. They were not great literature (definitely not!) but they showed the recipient that I put some thought into it.

Alas, no one writes letters any more.

Thank you, B for the education.

Thank you, @KNOWITALL, for sticking to the format, and screwing over my Xmas related idea.

Thankyou Santa, for teaching our children that the only person who loves them more than their parents is an old man who sneaks around at night with candy and toys for children.

@Patty_Melt There is no such thing as thank-you note in my country, so I’m really surprised when you said @KNOWITALL followed the format. I just wrote what I think a note looks like :)

Mimi, just take a look at the link.
Normally thankyou notes are given to show appreciation; for gifts, or being invited to a special event, or other occasions when a special kindness was extended.
The sender might use a greeting card, or nice stationary paper to write their thankyou.
In the link, Jimmy is doing them as a joke, irony. For instance,

Thank you kittens, for being so cute you can make us fall in love with something that grows it’s own razor sharp weapons and will grow up to hate us.

A real thankyou note would say something like
Dear Aunt Mitzy,
Thankyou for the lovely fog fountain. I find it a nice calming gift. I have it on every evening while I have tea, and unwind. I hope sometimes you can join me.
Sincerely, your niece, Patty Melt.

EDIT: Than you, @Mimishu, for doing your best with a very lovely sentiment.
You are loved.

Thank you for the music
The songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it?
I ask in all honesty
What would life be
Without a song or a dance
What are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me.

Great band were Kiss!

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Patty Thats my favorite part of Fallons show. I love when he cracks himself up.
Sorry I jacked your Santa line lol, great minds thinking alike again.

@ucme It just so happens Kiss will tour here next spring. Maybe you can catch them on your vaca. Motleys back on tour, too, just announced. Yay!!

ucme's avatar

@KNOWITALL The wife’s a fan of Kiss, me not so much.
I mean, put that tongue away you dirty buggers lol

KNOWITALL's avatar

@ucme It would be a nice surprise for her. Probably the last tour. Js.
Wouldnt Kiss in America be cool?!

ucme's avatar

@KNOWITALL For her yes, I may not tell her though :D

I guess I could thank my neighbor for wearing pants when she lets her cat out.
I am thankful for that as once was enough.

@ucme, Gene Simmons is the one with the tongue. He actually almost became a Rabbi, but decided a career in rock would get him more girl action.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Patty_Melt And he’s hella smart. I actually love his personality, the a-hole types intrigue me…of course.

ucme's avatar

He did a show over here a few years back where he mentored a bunch of kids, similar to school of rock & he came across great.

Was so inspiring, knew what he was doing & above all…so funny!

KNOWITALL's avatar

@ucme You should read his book, he’s actually a fascinating man (imo.)

When Simmons’ came to America, his name was changed from Chaim Witz to Gene Klein. He later decided to use “Gene Simmons” for professional purposes. He is the son of Hungarian Jewish parents, Flóra “Florence” (Klein or Kovács) and Feri Yechiel Witz.

ucme's avatar

@KNOWITALL I’m thinking if my wife didn’t already know these fascinating facts about the guy, I’m going to pull rank on her & make out I knew all the time.
She’ll be like well jealous lol

ucme's avatar

Cheers for that @Patty_Melt will show the Mrs later, she’ll be thrilled.

ucme's avatar

That’s my middle name ;-}
