So You Not Gonna Say “Thank You”?

thank youi believe in thanking people and acknowledging what they have done for me.
if someone does something for you,
either by taking time out their busy schedule or helping you out in a jam,
it is best to send them a little thank you note.
(sidebar: after every job interview,
you should always send a thank you.)
you can either write it yourself or send an email.
since i’m a writer (can i call myself that yet?),
i always try to write a little something to show my appreciation.
this morning,
i sent off an email thanking mr. green for meeting with me.
this is what i wrote…

Dear Mr. Green,

I hope all is well and I want to thank you again for being so patient with me during the flood in my apartment. It was very enjoyable meeting with you last week (1/31) about the position at _______ & _________. From the description of the job you briefly told me about, it seems to be an excellent match for my skills and interests. It is my strong desire to have a place on your team.

In addition to my enthusiasm, I will bring to the position strong administrative skills, assertiveness, proper communication, and the ability to encourage others to work cooperatively.

I appreciate the time you took to interview me. You were very nice and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

carrie-bradshawlooks about right…
i hope”.

this was after i reviewed/edited it about 40 times.
he sent me a reply back a 20 minutes later:

“Jamari.

Thank you for your email. I really appreciate the effort you are making for this position. We will be in touch.

Mr. Green.”

 i hope that is a good sign.
i’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed.
i realllllllllllllllly want this job ya’ll.
ya know,
i wonder if it’s effective to send “thank you” emails/texts to wolves as well?
hell even the ones that gave us great sex with for one night.

tumblr_mxm6e3ADeM1ryeoy9o1_500“hi wolf.

thanks for the sex.
it was great.
lets keep in touch.

sincerely,
satisfied”

i wonder if in doing this,
would it get you in a better position for something serious?
would it keep you on their radar?
instead of playing that “waiting game”,
you acknowledged them and made the first move.
a thank you note may not guarantee the job,
but it goes let the person know you were grateful for the time.
depending on how you word it,
it also lets them know you want to be in a permanent position.
so do the same rules for dating as well?
in a world where people are “self absorbed” and “only about what they can get”

Does a “thank you go a long way?”

    1. ^thanks OH and Man!

      have i mentioned that I really want this job?
      lol
      i was a little thrown back by his short reply.
      maybe I was expecting him to say I got it,
      but im still going to keep it in my prayers.

  1. I wouldn’t specifically mention the sex, but a thank you note for a good date/engagement is recommended and I often send them out. They go something like this:

    X,

    I enjoyed our time together yesterday when we went for a drive to San Francisco. I look forward to spending more time with you and getting to know you better.

    A good note will distinguish you from the other fellas as a person with class. To mention sex specifically would not be a class move.

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
