28 - all the stupid people get to them first.

stop complaining about the first comment.

38, at least they're talking about the first comment instead of just replying to it so that your comment is at the top. 35, not really, they just post stupid comments to be the first like "wow" and "that sucks". So yeah, its all for attention now'a'days

At least you won't get a hangover. But hangovers are the price to pay for a good party, so if I were you I'd just tell them to do one and drink a lot.

It's because if you take too long thinking up a thoughtful first comment, somebody will take it before you.

70- I'd rather have a well thought of, witty # 88 post or whatever as opposed to a crappy "wow" or "LAWL" first comment. It's not all about being first... but I guess to some FMLers it is. :/ My cousins want to do the same thing to me, OP. They said we'll go to a bar for my 21st this year, I said I don't drink, they said, "well then you can be the DD! :D" Because that is really just ever so the best birthday present I could get.


Wgat op didn't tell you was that they let her drive because they had bought her a ferarri with rockets and laser beams as a gift, and they wanted himher to be able to drive it! Theyr'e AMAZING friends

Awww that's so sad! Quit crying you ****** girl. If it's YOUR birthday and YOU are going out with your friends then you have the ability to tell them to **** off and not take everybody out if you don't want to. You could make someone else drive, a cab could be split cheaply among friends, etc. I bet you didn't even actually tell your friends that you didn't want to be the DD because you're a pussy. So, in summation: you deserve it. Deuche bag.

They are good friends! Because now chances are you won't do something stupid that you'll regret on your birthday!

Man....he's a real douche bag isn't he? VinegarStrokes...every time you comment you end it with douche bag....if you are going to continue to do so, learn the correct spelling first.

Oh shit! Thanks gangssaboo!!! I honestly thought the way I had spelled it WAS correct. I guess I shouldn't just assume things, huh? Lol... Much appreciated, I will continue ending my rants with the correct spelling of "douche bag" now. ;)

who cares if your the driver, driving is the BOMB :D

Least you're not one of the people who know how to party.

if you wanna drink on your birthday then how hard can it be to NOT have your car with you.

Exactly. If you WANT to drink. The OP could've been complaining that her friends designated her as the driver without consulting her first. That's rude anytime, but doubly so on someone's birthday. And that may possibly be the only issue here, because if she really wanted to drink, it's easy enough to make alternate arrangements.

well at least you have friends?

We never know. Maybe it's because OP has no friends that she is the designated driver; cause there is no one else to drive home...

dre_bro11 - But then who would designate her to drive? And whom would she drive home?

ah, good point. I like your thinking Doc.

Well hopefully you'll still get *musical note* birthday sex, birthday sex *musical note*.

I suspect you aren't the biggest party animal to designate you as the driver.

Get smashed, and sit on a bench with a plate, telling your friends to get in. You won't have to drive. Unless they're dumbasses.
