Job Interviews and Thank You Notes

I had a phone interview today. Most advice suggests a "Thank You" note afterwards. If pressed for time, a thank you email will do.

This felt incredibly awkward. I mean, I had just talked to the person twenty minutes before. I had ended the conversation with a thank you. Did I really need to send a note? I agonized over this briefly. Will he think I'm needy? I mean, he told me that he wouldn't get back to me until Monday. Is sending him an email now too much?

I ended up sending a short one. After all, advice I had read on getting jobs had gotten me this far. It feels weird, taking so much advice from the internet and books, but most of it is concurring advice, so I decided to go with it.
