It just seems as though her cousin keeps stealing the thunder of significant birthdays in our culture. 16, 18, 21...all meant to be days about you. The engagement--maybe she couldn't control it, but she could have definitely chosen another day for the shower unless the baby's going to be bursting out a day later.
Ya...and considering the cousin's a girl, something tells me that she had no control over the getting engaged part...as I highly doubt the guy would had known that that was the OP's birthday (and that probably would have been the farthest thing from his mind) when he decided to do it, and the cousin (or whoever planned the shower) probably figured that the day she got engaged would be a good time to have it...so, clearly it's just a coincidence Oh, and don't be a douche OP, not everything has to be about you
16: you've reached the age where you can hold a license or permit (depending on the state), granting you more mobility. 18: you're "legal" -- that is to say, you're officially an adult. you can pretty much do everything you were doing at 16, but with more adulthood! you can also fornicate and be tried in court like an adult. you may also be in college, which is arguably both awesome and a great place to start drinking. and you can do things like sign a contract and join the military! 21: you can drink legally! unless you're in certain foreign nations, and you can drink at 18. same shit applies, only you're older. big fucking deal. my point is: 16 & 18 > 21, in terms of milestone achievements in aging. |the kid|
Wait, since when did having a birthday give anyone the right to be a self-centered cock? I hardly think the cousin intentionally got engaged on OP's birthday and intentionally threw a baby shower on the same day 3 years later, just to spite OP. That would involve planning when her man proposed, and planning the pregnancy so that the most convenient day for the shower fell exactly on OP's birthday again. Hardly likely. Given that they're just cousins, she probably doesn't even know when OP's birthday is, and just sent out a mass email invitation to everyone she knows. That's hardly being selfish. It's called "coincidence".
That depends where you live, actually. I don't know about the UK but I know that 21 doesn't mean shit where I live. The important ones are 16 for driving, 18 for voting and being a legal adult, and 19 for being able to drink/ smoke/ play lottery/ whatever you want to do. And I would think that being able to drive or becoming a legal adult would be a bigger deal than being allowed to drink because anyone who cares that much about drinking already has been for years anyway, legal or not. I was way more excited for my 18th than I was for my 19th.
you should call her out on it op. this is kind of messed up of her. Does she realize it is your birthday?
