What do you do when someone forgets your birthday? Do you tell them immediately when they don't mention it the first time they see you? Or do you wait a couple of days to see if they finally realize they forgot? Do you drop hints? What about after they realize they've forgotten? Do you rub it in or shrug it off?

I don't really acknowledge my own birthday anymore. I even forgot that its only six days away, even. November is an absolutely miserable month for me, so I pretty much tune the whole month out. Including my bday. XD But if people remember, I usually give them a hug and stuff. =)

If it's an acquaintance, I don't really care enough to mention it, so a forgotten birthday from someone I only kinda know is a non-event.

If it's a close friend or family member, though, I might jokingly allude to it at some point during The Big Day (or shortly thereafter), give 'em a big hug, and laugh about it.

I don't think I've ever really had this happen, thankfully. This year for my birthday we went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner and it was unusually crowded that day. And then all of a sudden, the waiter comes by with an ice cream sundae thing with a candle in it and the waiters and waitresses started singing to me and they got the attention of the entire restaurant. I was so embarrassed...but it was also kind of cool. Turns out my friend told them to do it when she got up to "go to the bathroom". What a liar...haha

I would definitely not be happy because I find it easy to remember other people's birthdays. I guess I would hint at it a bit.
I'm a stereo and you're just so monotone.

Remember theirs and go their party so I'll have something to use against them in the future.

I don't do anything,
eventually over the course of that day, or the next one they find out.

I probably wouldn't do anything if someone forgot my birthday.
Every year my dad forgets my birthday but I am quite used to that its happened for as long as I can remember.

You will only expect a few words - what will those be? When the heart is full it may run over, but the real fullness stays within... Words can never tell you, however, - form them, transform them anyway, - how perfectly dear you are to me - perfectly dear to my heart and soul.
