    Does the thought really count?

    I was talking with my friends today during lunch. One of them was making a happy birthday card by hand. He didnt even colour it. And all of us are like saying dude you know that the girl u're giving it to will slap you and hate you for being cheap. He argues that it's the thought that counts. I helped out by writing a poem for the card and stuff.

    Anyways my question to you is this, does the thought really count? or does the value of the gift count? I want honest answers here!! i dun want any of that "of coz it does count" none of that. I want plaiun and simple answers abt this!

    Thanks for the siggy Ky-lyrra

    Sometimes it counts but it depends on how hard and the time you put into the idea that you created, I mean if you took the time and tried hard then yea but otherwise no... thats just a excuse.

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!

    i think it does count becuase there are alot of easy ways to give a gift but to make it by hand shows you care enough to take time out of your day just for them, yea most people think its cheesy but something from you go'es along way in the long run for letitng them knoew you care enough to make them something when you could have just baought a gift or even a card

    While it usually does make a difference, sometimes "the thought" just isn't enough.

    the thought DOES count. In your example, the boy making the card didnt put alot of thought into it. Just because he was making the card doesnt mean that its being thoughtful. Yes, he shouldve colored it, because its thoughtful. While the poem inside was thoughtful, he shouldve made it more thoughtful by coloring it, etc.

    it's not so much the thought... but the time and the emotion in whatever you're giving...

    -not just talking about your friend-but generally-
    a hand drawn card can be one of the sweetest and one of the worst things to give... if it's drawn from the heart (even if it's poorly done), any girl worth her breasts should love it... however... if the love isn't there, neither is the thought...

    -being completely honest- a lot of my favorite gifts from Soshi have been drawings he's given me... there's one i love so much that i planning to put it on a sweatshirt... in fact, almost all the drawings he gave me i put on the door of my room so i could see them whenever i want...

    ^_^ but that's just me...
