I don't see the issue. The concerts are only on specific days, if it was something they really wanted to see, Friday would be the only day they could go. Why can't his parents go to the concert and celebrate OPs birthday all day on the Saturday? If this was me in this situation I'd let them go to their concert and just suggest we go out for dinner the next day or any time that weekend to celebrate my birthday. And not bitch about it on FML. OP, get over it.
Hahah, how I wish my family viewed it like that. I would love to not celebrate my birthday. Instead, I argue with my family for the month prior to my birthday about how I'd like it if we didn't, and them calling me selfish and all sorts of stuff because I don't want them to waste the time and the money. And, even when I'm moved out and married here in a bit, they still insist that they'll be getting me things and taking me out to dinner and whatnot. So, you see, it's a big deal for some people. And wanting to spend some time with your family on your birthday does not seem terrible to wish for. This isn't quite an "FML" moment, but it is still sad, I think.
It sucks that he seemed to forget your birthday. But just because it's your birthday doesn't mean he can't have plans of his own.
or maybe he thinks OP is old enough to not wanna hang out with them on his/her birthday because they are old enough to make their own plans and maybe have some fucking friends to do something with. maybe OP needs to grow some balls and get a life and stop clinging onto his/her daddies hand.
