Today, tired of everyone forgetting my birthday, I traveled half way around the world to spend my 40th at a five star resort just to try and make it special. The hotel brought me a cake with someone else's name on it. FML

Just because they forgot his birthday doesn't mean they don't care about him. I've forgotten my own birthday before, along with the rest of my family, and only realized it two days later. Birthdays aren't really that big of a deal.

I agree with Welshite. I've forgotten my birthday a billion times (I'm very old) and I don't like a big deal being made out of it, either. People care, OP. Just because they can't remember the exact date you were born doesn't mean they dislike you.

I wholeheartedly agree, birthdays are very overrated. When my nephew was first born (twenty years to the day after myself), I used to think of his age in terms of MY birthday. Now I remember my own age in terms of HIS birthday.

Meanwhile, someone else got a cake with your name on it. Apparently you're not even special enough to have a unique disappointment on your birthday. It's okay though, OP. I think you're special. Oh so special.

Don't let that bring you down, enjoy your birthday regardless. If you travelled bc you expected no one would remember, then what does it matter if the hotel goofed. If anything, you can make them feel bad about it and possible get free stuff!
