    I have given my housekeeper a Christmas bonus, one week’s pay, the past three or four years. Each year, except this past one, she has acknowledged and verbally thanked me for her bonus. I leave her bonus check on the counter as I am not home when she comes to clean. Am I wrong to be upset that she did not acknowledge my bonus? Do I give her one next year?

    1. Thank you so much for the great question!
      I’ll post the Q&A as my blog post for today, and will leave it unsigned.
      Thanks again.

      Here are my thoughts:

      I know many people who have stopped giving gifts because they did not receive a Thank-you! Keep in mind that gift giving is just that, it’s a ‘gift’.

      I don’t think you are wrong to be upset by her lack of acknowledgement. I would wait to make the decision on next year’s ‘gift’. Maybe she will say something or better yet, write you a note in the days to come. If not, when the time arrives, assess the situation. If no thank-you or acknowledgement has occurred, maybe give her a small token, ie candle, candy, etc., in lieu of the money. Or opt for no gift at all.

      Also, I’m assuming she has cashed the check. If not, maybe you could ask if she received it.

      Another option, write her a note asking if she received the gift. It would be a great example for her to see the art of the handwritten note in action.
