Today is my birthday and almost everyone forgot like always :( whats a girl to do?

every year i send text or call all of my friends and family to wish them a happy birthday or happy anniversary. do you think they remember my birthday ever. it feels nice that someone remembers but no one hardly ever does for me. i am thankful my husband, my daughter, mom inlaw and my one friend remembered. it really makes me sad that no one remembers important days for me.

  • Accept the fact that people are assholes and get over it. Next year have a countdown to your birthday, that way no one will forget.

  • Happy Birthday!!!

    To be honest, if it weren't for FB I wouldn't know anyones birthday. I have y parents, grandparents siblings, and nephews on my calendar, I wouldn't know any cousins or friends w/out FB

  • Not everyone has a memory for little things like everyone's birthday. I remember immediate family most of the time, but even then it is easy to forget.

  • I remember the dates of my husband- daughter-son and mother and a couple of other people and that's it
    FB is a great thing for birthday reminders though :)

    Honestly, if the people you live with remember- then I think you are doing fine. My own mother has forgotten or gotten mine wrong for the past...7 yrs or so and same with my kids and the sad thing is-she is pretty healthy, and only has 3 Grandkids total- and the 3rd one lives with her (she has custody)

    Happy Birthday to you- I hope it's a nice day for you

  • Happy Birthday!!

    Trust me, if there were no FB my own mom wouldn't wish me a happy birthday. Most people are selfish and think only of themselves.

    Hope you have a great day!
