    A parent decreed one Christmas that she was no longer going to
    remind her children of their thank-you note duties. As a result
    their grandmother never received acknowledgments of the generous
    checks she had given. The next year things were different,
    however.

    "The children came over in person to thank me," the grandparent
    told a friend triumphantly.

    "How wonderful!" the friend exclaimed. "What do you think caused
    the change in behavior?"

    "Oh, that's easy," the grandmother replied. "This year I didn't
    sign the checks."
