    yes it is aweful to get an un-labeled plant. I for one have a bad memory sometimes and like you GrowinOld I have had to back track and figure out plants before. I even had one person send me THREE unlabeled platns and i had to figure it out by descriptions and pictures back and forth.

    Good to know it doesn't just happen to me!

    I do realize sometimes we are just rushing to even get the package out,
    but indeed it is important to take a little extra time to prepare it
    and perhaps get it out the following day or 2.
    It saves the other person a lot of aggravation!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    GrowinOld: Thank you for bringing this up as I have had the same problem with unidentified plants and people sending SASE.

    I have also had people take my name off lists (it seems there are at least 3 on here who do this routinely) and put theirs in place and just let it go and did not say anything to the person doing the giveaway, but I do write these names down and will not do any trades or giveaways with them in the future

    I've started writing the date, both the seed type & TF benefactors names on the inside of the flap of the SASE before enclosing it in the outer envelope. That way when the SASE gets back to me I just open it with a letter opener & read the contents & try to remember to post a Thank You & receipt acknowledgement here on the forum.

    In the not to distant past I was guilty of inadvertently adding my name to a list that was already full. My problem was that I did not refresh the page before adding my name, so the list I copied & pasted was actually 2 days old, won't make that mistake again (I hope).

    @afrodisa--A similar thing happened to me. I copied a list and was adding myself; meanwhile another user posted in the spot I intended to fill. When I did post, it looked as though I had deleted them. When I discovered my mistake, I apologized and made clear who had posted first.

    Afro I like your idea about writing inside the envelope!! I'm going to have to copy that idea.
