How would you feel if your friends forgot your birthday?
Will you feel that you have been a miserable self-centered Moron all the time,that no one bothered to remember it...or that they were really busy and they forgot...?Or...do you think Birthday has to be treated as just another day in one's life..and celebrating it is a waste of time..

I know it all depends on one's perception...there would be just too many views out there...just wanted to know a few..

Not only friends, but my brothers forget my birthday. And its easy. My name is "Pat" and I was born on St Patricks Day. Still they forget.

So next St Patricks Day, drink a beer and say "Happy birthday Pat"

Pick one of such friend who forgot your Birthday. On his birthday, convince other friends and relatives (if you can) to call him. Juts call him and talk about general things, like asking how is he doing? What are plans for weekend, but don't wish him.

Make sure at least 8-10 people do this. He will pick the calls expecting people to wish him, but they will start talking about general stuff. By the evening he would realize how bad it feels when friends forget the birthday, and other friends will also realize their mistake. Its a funny way and they wont feel bad either. But make sure that all of you finally call him and wish him.

That may work, though surely not as well as all those friends remembering his birthday.

He'll then remember the warm fuzzy feeling, and want to make a note of your birthday to share.

Geez that sounds a lot like giving the thing that you want the most and you'll get it back with plenty to spare.

Some friends make sure we don't forget their birthday. A few weeks before their birthday, they start joking "what will I get for my birthday ? Have you already bought my present ?". And this goes on until the day finally comes

Sounds like my wife. She starts birthday celebrations a month before the date and keeps going till a month after.

Congratulations on reaching 7945 posts

You get to sleep in the bathtub.

Forget your anniversary, and you sleep in the bathtub for a week
