Grandma rocks

One Christmas, a parent decreed that she was no longer going to remind her teen age children of their thank-you note duties. As a result their grandmother never received acknowledgements of the generous checks she had given…

The next year things were different, however.

“The children came over in person to thank me,” the grandparent told a friend triumphantly.

“How wonderful!” the friend exclaimed. “What do you think caused their change in behaviour?”

“Oh, that's easy,” the grandmother replied. “This year I didn't sign the checks.”
