TO EXPECT A THANK YOU FROM A TEENAGER
DIZZYDALEK · 15/05/2011 14:11
I gave a much sought after concert ticket to a friends 15 year old daughter, as I could no longer go and she really wanted to go but didn't get a ticket.Her mum was appreciative and said thanks but nothing from her daughter!I feel a little offended by this,surely a simple thank you text message isn't much to ask? Basic good manners in my opinion!

I gave away a ticket to a very big concert complete with a hotel room when I coudn't go due to a crisis at work and was a bit put out not to get a thank you, but then a day or two after the event I received a thank you card and a tour t shirt from her so you may still get a thank you

that's up to the parent/s I think, to check it's been done. I am delighted that, despite my kids having been appalling teens, I currently see thank you cards from them on peoples' mantlepieces', completely unprompted by me - the message/drill went in - phew. My SIL's kids never send thank yous, even last year after receiving £60 in cash as a wedding present [judgy pants icon]
