So I've been married well over a year now, got married in 6/07/09. I wrote out all of my thank you cards 4 months after the wedding, putting a wedding picture and a personalized message in each one, there were about 100. I mail them out...putting them IN my mailbox on my way to work in the morning...

Now fast forward to this weekend...my downstairs neighbors recently moved out...and they were nightmare neighbors to say the least. My landlord was down there cleaning up the mess they left and found in the closet up on a shelf under some newspapers and who knows what else...my THANK YOU letters. NOT in once piece but looking like they had gone through a effin shredder!! Only reason I know they are mine is you can see DH's head and my head in some of the shredded pictures.


So here is my dilema...do I not resend them all out...(It cost A LOT to print out all those pictures) or do I resend them???


Some back story because I know the Trolls will want to know...They have only lived downstairs for 2 years and have commited the following neighbor "crimes" against us...

*Stole our cat, told us it was dead and gave it to a friend, who in return gave the cat back to us because he thought it was wrong.

*Smoked pot inside and made my house smell like a hippie den from the 60's and wouldn't stop until the landlord got the cops involved.

*Tried to have my car towed from our driveway.

*Blocked my 63 Y/O Aunt in our driveway for 5 hours just to be assholes.

*Called my homosexual friend slurs when he walked by their house (Which he has to do to get to our apartment, no other eay)

We aren't the only people having trouble with this couple either, the neighbors on both sides of my building have made complaints to the landlord, 1 tenant in my building moved out to avoid them, and another was getting ready to move out. Hence the eviction process. They owed like 5 months of rent and most of their deposit. So no, it's not us. They are druggies who have a discusting sense of entitlement and are just rude.

Thanks in advance for those of you who help!

Messing with your mail is a federal offense. I would be calling the cops.

I would probably send something, maybe a letter or something that says, it was just brought to my attention that our Thank-you letters never made it to you. Just wanted to drop you a note and say thanks so much for your wonderful gift.......idk

I would just resend the thank you cards to those who gave you gifts, with a note inside that you just discovered your originals never made it to them.  I wouldn't include a picture, just the thank you and an explanation/apology.

These two ladies said it well.  I'd re-do them.

 Yep something like this.  I totally remember when people don't send thank you notes.  It's about as tacky as can be.  Obviously you went above and beyond and circumstances beyond your control stepped in.  Even a postcard type thank you with the same message would suffice.

That sucks.  What rudeness!
