In the end, they go into the trash bin.
It's a shame that so many people spend part of their hard-earned vacation time writing (hopefully) constructive feedback that cannot be understood.
I try very hard to print legibly and express my ideas clearly.
But WHY in the world do I only get six closely spaced lines to do it in???
Give us more room on the cards, and perhaps we can write more sensible comments.
