It doesn't bother me at all. Everyone gets so busy I don't expect people to remember exactly when it is. All I can say is thank goodness for Facebook for reminding us of people's birthdays! I usually know when they are roughly but it's nice to get the reminder from Facebook of someone's birthday coming up

I would forget everybody's birthday unless somebody reminds me. It's only since I get Facebook notifications of somebody's birthday that I actually manage to say "happy birthday" to people now. Even best friends. I just have a terrible memory for things like that. DH and I forgot our wedding anniversary last month and we've only been married 2 years lol

I don't really mind or cared as I've stopped celebrating birthdays since my 21st.
However it's nice when someone thinks of you or cares enough to make an effort.

I do have one friend, we have known each other since high school. 45 years of knowing each others birthdays. and my birthday is Anzac Day. so not hard to forget or to miss ( if you are living in Aus or NZ ) she forgot my 40th and my 50th. it surprised me, didn't really upset me. but .... she has remembered other times, but just both of those bdays she arranged overseas holidays for herself and her dh. marie.

Thanks for the replies.
I was curious because I am not too phased about my own bday but I did forget my friends on Sunday and I remembered at 3am this morning so I text her at 6 when I woke up again. I just felt bad and was wondering how others felt.
She said it was fine and that I wasn't the only one to forget which made me sad.

Wouldn't bother me, the world doesn't revolve around me. We all lead busy lives and I'm hopeless remembering birthdays at the best of times.

Not bothered. My kids, DH and parents are usually the only ones to remember which is nice but as others have said it's usually just another day.

It wouldn't worry me. Things happen and I'm sure I have forgotten things in. The oast

For me if it's a friend i don't mind if they don't remember on the day as I am a sucker for forgetting birthdays.
If it is my parents then that upsets me. It upset me more when family (my dad) forgot my ds' s first birthday. He is the first grandchild
