Wanna hear something funny?

My birthday is tomorrow. I share a birthday with another lady in our office. We've worked together for like 4 years now, and every year the office has done a small joint birthday thing (cards, cake, office e-mail, etc.) usually hosted by our HR manager. On Wednesday they all took the other lady out to lunch. When they returned I (semi) jokingly said "Hey, why wasn't I invited? It's my birthday too!" to which our HR manager replied "I didn't even know it was your birthday too until they told me when we got to the restaurant!!" Lies, but whatever. Then she so kindly offered me her leftovers. No thank you.

Anyways, so this morning a couple people in the office were huddled over coffee in the kitchen, including this same HR manager, and someone asked if I had any plans tomorrow. Our manager piped up and said "I didn't know you shared a birthday with S____!!!" Um, pretty sure we discussed this, but alright. So I said yes, I did.

About 5 minutes later she brings over a flower which she'd left on the other lady's desk, and a card signed by the maybe 10 people that are actually here this morning. Best part, she even signed for the people that aren't here. Well, actually she just listed a few and then added "et all". Ha!

I feel so loved. Soo yeah, just thought I'd share my birthday fun and maybe milk a few real Happy Birthdays from someone here hahaha jk.

  • Happy Birthday! It can be hurtful when things like that happen, but don't let it get to you. I would stop at your local nursing home and ask if you can give those flowers to someone who is having a hard time or maybe it's their birthday. Ask if you can deliver them yourself and voila...that good feeling is your Birthday present...

    Enjoy your day!

  • I probably would have tried to make a joke like, "That's ok, at my age I don't like being reminded how old I am" But I would have been hurt. Good for you seeing the humor in the situation.
    SO, Happy Birthday! I hope you have an AWESOME day.
