If someone forgets/ignores your birthday but then organizes a birthday party for themselves and invites you along, do you:

(a) make up an excuse and not go
(b) go but don't bring anything
(c) go and bring a card at least or
(d) take the higher moral ground and bring a present also?

Votes and opinions please. :hmm:

a - miss a party because you're sulking?
b - my choice for any party because i'm a bloke
c - i don't do cards at the best of times
d - only if she's fit

So a B for me.

Life is too short... take a gift and then drop a hint or 2 about them missing your big day!!
That was an idea of mine but how do you do that without coming across as a complete bee-atch?? :blush:

Take a present but write the tag as if it is from them to you instead of you to them.

See if they get the hint.

Oh I like that. I could just refer to one of the presents and say "so and so got me one just like that..." : victory:

Well, my OH solved my dilemma by buying a card and a bottle of champagne. That way, we didn't arrive empty handed so my conscience was clear but I still got to pout a bit. :whistling2:

Been and gone, it was on last night. : victory:

I had to laugh at my hubby though as I commented that I'd never seen such a load of bad bleach blonde dye jobs in my life i.e. major dark roots showing. He commented that they were "recessionary roots" i.e. the ladies in question couldn't afford the regular root top ups...:lol2:

I did, thanks. I didn't stay too long though as we couldn't get a babysitter so I left my 14 year old son in charge of his younger siblings for the hour or so that I was gone. Bless, he had them all in their pyjamas by the time I got back and the youngest was asleep on his lap. :flrt:

My brother-in-law just called up a few moments ago - he got to bed around 7 this morning!! He just found one of his mates asleep on the bathroom floor...so it was definitely a good party! :lol2:
