To be pissed off and feel my friend is a little ungrateful?

It was my friends birthday last Monday (15th) and I took her out for dinner 3 days before on the Friday night- I paid for everything. She was off for a week last week and has been a bit stand offish with me since Monday- assumed she had a bad week (home life isn't great at the moment) and thought nothing more of it.
Then overheard her today bad mouthing me because I neglected to send her a text to wish her happy birthday.
AIBU to be a little pissed off and feel she is being ungrateful? She did send me a text to thank me for the dinner afterwards and I wouldn't put her down as an ungrateful person in general- just a little sensitive perhaps.

It depends. How close are you?
Did you mention her birthday during the meal? I.e. Have a good one if I don't see you?
Did she remember your last birthday?
3 weeks is kind of a long time.....
If one of my BFs "forgot" to even text and say happy birthday, if I always remembered theirs, I might be a bit miffed.

We're close. She's the only one at work who is a similar age so we get on well and have quite a bit in common. She does have some MH issues though and can be quite sensitive so I don't want to judge too much but can't help being a little pissed off.

I don't think YABU about feeling hurt she was bitching about you, you did a nice thing.
But I'm a bit surprised that you are close enough to go out to eat just the 2 of you but you didn't think to drop her a 5 second happy birthday text.
Not worth bitching about, definitely not, but why didn't you?
I mean, a meal is nice, but 3 days before my birthday isn't my birthday!

Do people actually text all their friends on their birthday? I would never expect texts on my birthday!? Did this friend get upset with every person who didn't text her Happy Birthday?
Sounds really, really petty and friends that get upset by things like this are just too much hard work...
