    If there is a movement to rid our society of these things, sign me up.

    Unless they have money or something in them, the recipient doesn't care about the card. Hallmark and companies like them have convinced "us" we need to give cards to others for almost any reason or holiday... but we don't.

    They suck to pick out... are pricey unless you go to the dollar store - at which point, what IS the point?

    They suck and have outlived their "usefulness".

    We need cards. I mean, I don’t want to be out here buying people presents for their birthdays, Xmas, valentines, etc.

    A card is the perfect way to say “Oh look, I thought about you so you can’t ***** that I didn’t do anything for you this holiday” without spending much money

    Actually, what it says is... I don't really care about you that much. So here's some paper that says something that I marginally mean or wasn't as bad as the other options.

    There was a good 5 year span where I literally kept rebuying my wife the SAME Valentine's Day card.

    She got tired of it and said I dont have to keep wasting $8 on the same card every year...

    Nice little trick if you're gonna keep with the cards. Read the card next to the one you pick and add the message to the card you buy..

    Makes you look so thoughtful

    I do... but I have no idea what they said. Nor did I care unless it had cash or a gift card inside.

    I can never find a card that says what I would actually say... unless I buy a pricey one. Always end up getting one that "isn't the worst".

    I broke away from those cursive lovey-dovey ones to my wife because that's not me, and she knows it.
