Every so often, someone will stun us with an incredible gesture so deserving of some kind of "thank you" that it's not funny. More like you'd go to Hell if you didn't show your gratitude! That's why it's important that we all keep up with the latest trends in choosing thoughtful words for a thank you note.

How many times has this happened to you?: You're going through life, just looking out for you and yours, when all of a sudden, without any provocation, a stranger does something kind for you? Maybe they open a door ahead of you. Maybe they give you a brand new car, and say, "Pay it forward." Or maybe they just do something simple, like shout, "Hey look out for that bus!" Whatever their kind act, you are obligated as a classy and upstanding citizen to at the very least thank them for their efforts.
