    My GF's dad dry cleaned a scarf for me. Early this weekend my GF mentioned that after she took one of my friends to a college bball game, he told her he wanted to write a thank you note to her dad (his tickets), she told him not to worry about it. She told her dad and he thought great things about this kid, so Ill take the hint.

    How do I write a thank you note to my GF's dad. Also, I am a pretty silly guy, so I want to add a part about how i really appreciate it because the GF was using it to take off her make up.

    Also any tips on deliver method?

    Thanks guys :wavey:

    Thank you note is better than a call-- don't be a dunce.

    "I love the scarf so much I let your daughter wipe off her makeup on it and occasionally my manjuice that gets on her face"


    How is that gonna go over well, man?

    Text his phone.
    "Thanks for cleaning the cum stains off the scarf"

    How long ago did this happen? If you didn't say something or send a note right away, don't do it now -- it could actually make you look worse, especially since you're doing it to suck up after you found out what his reaction was to your friend wanting to send him a thank-you note.

    Dear _________

    Thank you for doing such a great job cleaning my scarf. It was very kind of you and very much appreciated.

    Best Wishes,

    Your Name

    P.S. I will be purchasing your daughter some makeup removal wipes, so hopefully it won't get in that shape again!LOL

    Your Initials

    really? you guys think a letter is a better idea? I just feel like if you want to become more personal and friendly with her parents, call the guy up and say thank you. Are you really gonna write a letter, mail the thing to say thank you? If I got the letter myself, I would say "is this guy afraid to talk to me?" It would just be weird

    Most parents are a little more old fashioned. At least speaking for my parents, i think a short note would go over very well. They're not going to miss the thought behind it no matter how stupid the note is or you think it is.

    I absolutely wouldn't send one. She already told her dad this other kid was thinking about it... if you do it it's just gonna seem like some kind of ploy. Were you gonna send him a note before she told you this? No. So be genuine and don't send one. Just let him know you appreciate it the next time you see him

    Personally, I think a note is a little over the top for dry cleaning a scarf. Hell, I think the only time I ever wrote a thank you note was to my old boss at university who pretty much guided me and mentored me through grad school.

    Am I the only one saying no here?

    seems like a little much to write a thank you for the dry cleaning, it would be different if it was a gift or something

    but if you feel you must do it, be simple. write "thank you for dry cleaning my scarf, it looks wonderful" and sign your name. hand the letter to him next time you see him (as long as its soon-ish) so that its more casual and not as formal as mailing something

    not sure i would mention anything about your gf's make up...it sounds weird

    Make sure you hand write the note and dot all your i's with hearts.

    A letter for dry cleaning a scarf just seems way too much in my opinion. Save it for a night that he hosts a dinner at his house and invites you over, or takes you out, or gives you a gift, or maybe if he does some dry cleaning for you again in the future. At this point I'd just make sure that next time you see him you cordially thank him for the favor and extend you gratitude.
