The thing about birthdays is most people hype them up so when the day comes and you don't get exactly what you want, there's disappointment.

What I've been doing for the past few years would be going to festivals, concerts, campgrounds etc and acting like/telling people it's my birthday, when it actually wasn't.

Who's going to be the jerk who makes someone prove it's their birthday in those environments?

Nobody, that's who.

Due to this tactic I've had many fun birthdays in a single year and my actual birthday has less pressure on it to be a good one.

How many of you usually end up working on your birthday?

For the past 5 years, I've worked on my birthday.
I work out of town - 1 week on, 1 week off.
How my schedule works out, Ill be working on my bday for the next 2 years.

My wife makes an ordeal out of it, saying I should be home with the family for it.
But to me, I honestly don't care if I work on it.
Bdays became a hindrance once I turned 21.

Hell, the other week I was driving home after being here at work for a week,
and I was thinking I was turning 39.
I was thinking damn, I'm getting old, I'm almost 40.

Then this weekend, my wife told me I'm only turning 38!
So that was a bonus.
I felt like I earned an entire year back.

How many of you make sure you take your birthdays off of work?
Who doesn't even keep track of how old they are anymore, because your bday feels like just another day?


Because of my mom being a narcissistic butthole, I never really had "birthdays". I was always punished on my birthday. So I never really looked forward to them. Then I married a psycho wife that would get jealous if my co workers threw a birthday party for me. It was hell when I got home. I divorced her later in life. Then I got married again to a woman who is all about birthdays and holidays. I sometimes tear up on my birthday because I had never felt loved on that day. Now i do.

I always go downtown on my birthday alone and cruise the used book shop, then have a grilled cheese sandwich or a pizza, and some beer. its mah ritual.

And you know, taking time for yourself to be by yourself, is an ideal way to spend a birthday.

Its important to take time for ourselves.
Even if its just 1 hour a day.
That still only equates to 5% of 24 hours.

Unfortunately Yes. I don't take those days off because I feel bad making someone take my place for a birthday.
