What the title says really...have 3-4 close friends of whom I always buy for & remember their birthdays as well as their children's & today is my birthday & not one of them has even text me sad
AIBU to be upset?

No, not unreasonable but try not to take it personally.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, wifey6 cakethankswine

Poor you sad no YANBU at all. I'd be upset too.

Here have some cake and a happy birthday from me smile

Don't take it personally people are busy and a bit useless sometimes. Happy birthday!!!

Do they normally mark your birthday? Is it an important one? If so, YANBU. If they don't normally do anything for it, and it's not an important one, then YABU (although I know you're upset sad).

Tbh - I never remember my friend's birthdays unless I see it on FB by chance. Some friends 'do' birthdays, others don't - I'm firmly in the latter camp, but it doesn't mean I don't value my friendships.

I'm scatty and useless about things like this - I love my friends dearly though so don't take it personally. And happy birthday!

wifey6 Sun 16-Feb-14 18:56:05

Sir...yes we do normally..especially me & my best friend - but not even she has text me today.

BringMeTea Sun 16-Feb-14 18:56:24

Happy Birthday Wifey6!

SirChenjin Sun 16-Feb-14 18:58:34

In that case, no, YANBU. It's still early in the evening, so maybe she's been busy today and will text later. Do you have half term this week? Is she away somewhere perhaps?

wifey6 Sun 16-Feb-14 19:03:07 she is home during half term & said she was having a few quiet days at home. I feel so stupid for allowing it to make me cry today sad
Thank you for all making me feel batter though with your birthday wishes x thanks

I was 30 at the beginning of January and I didn't get nothing from my friends nor my sisters! I. "Only" received 6 cards and one of them was from a holiday rep!!! I feel your hurt!!!! So I think your not unreasonable!!! For my family's big birthdays we always chipped in for a big lovely gift! Shame I didn't get that courtesy back!!!

Happy birthday and this is for u winethanks xxx

SirChenjin Sun 16-Feb-14 19:09:19

I wonder if she's just truly forgotten? I know that's not much comfort, but it could be that it's genuinely slipped her mind as my neices' birthdays often do, I'm deeply ashamed to say

wifey6 Sun 16-Feb-14 19:09:21

Bornin...that's awful..feel so sad for you that our friends & family behaved that way hmm
How have you dealt with their birthdays since?

wifey6 Sun 16-Feb-14 19:10:02

You could be right Sir...I'm not going to cause a fuss

Bowlersarm Sun 16-Feb-14 19:10:34

happy Birthday wifey6

Bornin1984 Sun 16-Feb-14 19:11:46

We haven't had any birthdays since but I'll remember this forever!! I was looking at my 21st gifts today like keys and champagne flutes and I felt really bitter! Not a good feeling ;-(

Mrswellyboot Sun 16-Feb-14 19:11:48

Happy Birthday and wine from me

wifey6 Sun 16-Feb-14 19:12:32

Sadly Bornin, that feeling will stay with you as I fear this will with me.
