I figured this out a few years ago when my magical powers of procrastination prevented me from taking an assortment of Thank you, Birthday, Holiday, Sympathy cards out of my car. A couple months later, I was out with a friend and we got a call to come to a birthday party. Pulled out card, wrote hasty message and put in envelope. Suddenly I’m a really considerate guy with no real time commitment at all. The same thing happened three more times in quick succession.

Not a bad way to seem thoughtful without making much of an effort.
