Yesterday was my birthday, and I was shocked and frankly a little offended that 3 of my closest friends posted ‘Happy Birthday!!” on my Facebook wall and that was it. Of course, I’m grateful they acknowledged my birthday, but at least shoot me a text. It was very faux pas.
Here’s my list of impersonal birthday wishes in the order of sucky:
- Happy birthday post on Facebook or other public social media
- Happy birthday message on Facebook or any social media
- Happy birthday text
- Happy birthday call
- Happy birthday in person
- Happy birthday in person with presents
Okay, obviously that last one is very rare. If you’re close with someone at least shoot them a text.
