5. first important rule of life, my friend....
Friends are more important than jobs or bosses. It was a nice gesture. At the very least, recognize that. If he's not really your friend, then tell him you don't want cards from him, but if he is-- be happy he took the time to put friendship before less important obligations. It's too rare.

IMO, of course.
