OFFICIAL Card - Ukraine

When this card arrived it kind of left me scratching my head. I am honestly OK if someone chooses to type out the message on the card. I do not have the best handwriting so can appreciate typing makes it easier to read and you can say more. Over the years I have had different people mention in their typed notes that they have a shaky hand, a broken arm, whatever. This card though was a little bit different. The message is printed on the back - a one-liner wishing me the best - and the only thing written is my name, address and ID number. It was a fancy handwriting font with lots of white space. I have never seen anything so generic. When I look at their sent cards I see I am one of many who have received the exact same card. Doesn't even mention the view is of their home town, Zaporizhia, Ukraine. How do you feel about typed postcards?

  1. I got one once, I think the sender didn't speak/write English. It felt like a friend had written up the message for him (iIrc) and then just photocopied it a few hundred times.

    I didn't like it much, but I don't like receiving the same card from someone that they send to everyone either.
