Truth and Consequences

Dear Short Answers:
It’s already New Year’s Eve and I have not received a single thank you note or phone call from any of my 7 nieces and nephews who I bought significant Christmas gifts for.  Should I just keep waiting?  Or complain to their parents?

Dear Uncle:
Cool your jets. Talk to us again in a few weeks. If your gifts have still not been acknowledged, try writing your ill-mannered kin a clear but affectionate, and hopefully amusing, note about your expectations. If a response is not forthcoming, you may feel free to adjust your gift giving accordingly.
