Where have our manners gone?

I just thought I would have a moan, because I haven't had one for quite a while now.

Recently I have had three unit 10 students contact me in a blind panic saying they needed assistance with various parts of their unit 10 projects. After pointing them in the right direction, not a single one said thank you. Why do I bother????

Just thought I would mention it.

Speegs :(

    I know I was grateful for your help reading through my paper a few months ago as I was really stuck! People like you and the others are fantastic with all of your advice for getting through AAT!

    Fully agree with you Speegs. It's so frustrating to sometimes spend half an hour or more writing a post or PM for no reponse, but a-can't-really-be-arsed "Thank you" isn't much better either.

    We're not asking for a long winded declaration of gratitude but some form of proper acknowldegment beyond just two words wouldn't go amiss.

    Actually I would settled for just a Thank You, but often I don't even get that. Ahhhhh

    Theres a lot of people prepared to walk on top of others to get what they want.

    I completely agree. I was amazed at how much help people on here gave me for my project. I even posted a thread to show my thanks! http://forums.aat.org.uk/showthread.php?t=26623 because it's not every day somebody who you don't really know takes the time and effort to help others. A small thank you goes a long way in my opinion.
