Birthday comes and goes, and the sarcasm sharpens over time:
"Thanks for ignoring me on my birthday, you didn't even get me anything!"
Facepalm! I can't win.
T-bone, you would be surprised how much pain you can avoid with just a little stuffed animal or something similiar. My wife always says she doesn't want anything, but any little cheap nothing will put a smile on her face. After 31 years, I know.
