My husband recently wondered if we could send a typed thank you note to a friend who’d helped us out during the storm… we had a lot to thank her for, and he felt it would be easier to compose the note on a computer, where we could rearrange and polish phrases as needed.
Reflexively, I said “no,” but then I found myself wondering if conventions would change in the future. Then again, even now, handwritten notes are special precisely because of their rareness. And why print out a typed note, at that point, when you can just as easily email it?
What do you think? Are there any situations in which it’s ok to send a typed note?
