YUP. E-cards. Ok, so I get that sometimes it's nice to send out a fun little "hey I was thinking about you" message... and in these cases, using an "e-card" is acceptable as it's much more fun than just an email. But, let me make something clear, the use of e-cards for birthdays, holidays, anniversary's and the like is just rude. I said it. RUDE. Oh, and let's not forget the fact that everyone in your address book got the same cheesy, "I hope you have a great holiday season. Love, X, X, X, and X" message in the card. I understand that it's the same thing when you MAIL a card to someone, but at least when you mail a card, that means you took the time to actually, with your own hand, write in the card, address each envelope and affix a stamp to it. They may be standard across the board, but at least you took time with each individual one instead of hitting "copy/paste" and "send"after filling in a few blanks to make sure that everyones names are on the card.
The point- e-cards suck and are a very distanced, disjointed way of wishing someone any type of happy holiday. To the person that sent that damn thing (though I highly doubt you'll ever see this blog), take me off your damn mailing list. To everyone else, sorry you had to "listen" to my feelings about these atrocious things.
