Do me a favor?
Amy Dickinson, who has a column called “Ask Amy”, received a letter from a lady who is a step-mom and a little bit peeved that the grandchildren aren’t sending thank you notes. She says, “I would take a text of thanks or a phone call.”
Amy advised, “You can ask the parents, ‘Hey, could you do me a favor and have your child shoot me a quick text or a little video when they receive something from me — that way I’ll know that it landed in their hands.'”
I was surprised that she wasn’t forcing printed material.
