resigning from pen pal participation

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I apologize for any inconvienance, but our money situation is so bad right now.....I know buying things isn't an obligation to be a pen pal, but we are suppose to get our PP's packages at least twice a month, and I don't think I am going to be able to do that....I don't want to say I can, and then not be able to when the time comes....I hope that there are no hard feelings here because of this......email me or PM me or just leave me a message here..Thanks...

Kathy, I think that your penpal would be quite understanding about not getting a package. I know I don't expect lots of things-I'm just excited about getting letters/emails from people I don't know. How about sending recipes or pictures of your cats? That might be an idea, too.

I will be more than to remain on it if because that would probably be all I could do.....I am just living in the poor house right now.I can barely afford to have this computer and internet going....

Kathy, I'm sorry to hear about your financial problems! Still, I have always seen pen-pal exchanges as a way to get to know the other person. You get to know the other person through letters, personal interests, hobbies, home made crafts...etc!

The pen-pal exchange has never meant just sending 'purchased' items. I would much rather find out more about my 'pen-pal' than have an extra toy for Nakita. Make this more of a 'personal exchange' rather than a 'purchased exchange'.

You do have the right to drop out of this project, but I worry when people feel obligated to always 'buy' items. Just my thoughts.

Hey letters are great! No need to get gifts at all. I love getting photos for my kitty room I'm sure others will feel the same.

Kathy, Im glad you decided to stay! and I feel so much better after reading this thread, since I know Im not going to affor gifts, only letters and cards... and I know my pen pal - the one chosen for me (that Im writing her) - had already gotten stuff for me...

But I agree wuth whats been said. Im having a great time just getting to know people!
