Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice

Thumbs-down to the person(s) who took the gift card I mailed to my grandson. It was sent through regular mail. He was waiting for it anxiously. That's OK; I was able to send his mother a check, and she purchased another one for him.
This time of year be careful what you send through the mail.
Thumbs down to Christmas Grinches!
