I can see both sides of the issue. One side wants the card as quickly as 
possible and the other side sees themselves providing a service for free 
so just be happy it's getting done.

One quick thought that would help both sides: don't volunteer to answer 
QSL cards if you know you can't get them out in a timely manner. It 
saves the volunteer from being rushed and constantly bothered to do 
something for which they're not being paid and it saves the receiver of 
the card the nervousness and impatience of not getting a card as soon as 
they can.

We have this same problem in a charity with which I volunteer. We 
sometimes have people who want to take on a project, but don't really 
have the time to give it their best effort. The result is everyone 
getting frustrated and in the end, the project suffers or is abandoned 
altogether. Everyone's intentions are good, but sometimes the time just 
isn't there and that's completely understandable.
