I'd Rather Receive Nothing Than an Online Greeting Card

They’ll start soon. Those pesky online holiday greetings from business associates you may or may not know will start showing up in your Inbox. They claim to be from people who want to “reconnect” with you.


Popping a bunch of email addresses into a box and sending a generic message that makes me have to do something to get it gives me no sense of holiday cheer. They get deleted as soon as they hit my Inbox. And a similar fate happens when I receive holiday cards with only a pre-printed name and not a signature.

How do you feel? I truly would rather receive nothing than to get these things.
