Response: today is Feb. 7th and I will send the Gratitude Day #22 to you right away. I am sorry I did not respond to you. However, I was in the process of getting ready to move and I was not as attentive as I usually am. So please accept my apology. If we swap again, I will do much better. Barb B.

Comment: I totally agree with you, unfortunately nowadays many people are very unkind :( you don't need to go too far: sometimes the shop assistant is also very rude, though you kindly said hello and kindly asked something. Everyone is saying it's because of the low salary, but in my opinion a normal people wouldn't be rude with an other just because she/he gets low salary.

Comment: There are many ways to communicate yet many people still can't find a way to do it well and find a time to talk... Or they find themselves too busy to send a simple message, right? Thank you for the swap! It made me reflect a bit upon this topic :)
