Today, I was texting a friend of mine. She mentioned it was her dad's birthday. I typed "Tell him Happy Birthday for me!" and as I pressed send I remember her dad was dead. FML

How is she a terrible friend? It's like a person saying, "Today's my dad's birthday, but he's dead." Why bring up the subject?

I would be hitting my head against the wall O__o

I'd just text again saying "Oh my god,I read your name wrong and thought you were XXX(someone with a similar name"

Or just say something like "because I know he is with you in your heart"

If he died a long time ago it shouldn't be a problem. I'd laugh if one of my friends sent me a message like that. If u dont make a big deal out of it, it should be alright. If he died recently though, u r pretty much fucked

you would laugh at your dead dad even if he died awhile ago? wtf.

I don't see how that could be funny. If someone told me to tell my dad happy birthday, after he died, I would be extremely insulted.

I heard somethin like this a while back somebody texting everyone happy mothers day to someone whose mother had died

Have you lost anyone at all you care about? You tend to remember them on their birthdays. Maybe she wanted to talk about it or something. It sounds like a hint to me.

I did recently lose my dad and I would have laughed at that just because of how awkward it is. It does not make you a horrible friend or person for slipping up. Not all of my friends even know my dad passed away and the ones that do know aren't all so extremely close to me that something like that is not a possiblity of happnening. Some people really take life very seriously and tend to expect perfection from everyone around them. It was an oopsie. Shit happens. Laugh it off and move on.

It was probably more like "how are you?" "oh, you know... its my dads birthday" as if to say... not so great. the latter friend thinking that the former would remember dead daddy (since she remembered it she clearly DID already know and it just slipped her mind)

aw im sorry, but thats a great attitude.

That sucks. But if you two were friends I think you'd probably know that.

Uh maybe because that's her dad and she still celebrates his birthday...damn, are you retarded?

Then say it as a reply to his comment. Or better yet just like his comment and move on

It's all on you, if you forgot about it, then it should be fine.

"Today, I realized I have you as a friend. FML" I would love you have you as a friend....not

That doesn't make her a bad friend.

"Today, I realized I don't have you as a friend. FML" I would love you have you as a friend....I really love people who never make any mistakes at all

Your her friend and you forgot that her dad is dead?
