As seen on Facebook:

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes!
I feel blessed to have so many thoughtful friends!

Seriously? Your birthday is listed on Facebook – those hundred-thousand-whatever people (er, friends) didn’t know it was your birthday! Facebook reminded them.
I would feel MORE blessed to remove my birthday from Facebook every year, and receive the 10 or so birthday messages from my REAL friends who really knew it was my birthday. Now, THAT’s special.

I challenge you to try it on your next birthday – then see how ‘blessed’ you feel.
Or, better yet… change the date of your birthday – see if anyone calls you out.

So, no offense – but this is why you generally don’t see me wishing Happy Birthdays on Facebook.

    I got none of the above, so poo on you! At least, I’m pretty sure you didn’t put it on fb.
