    My 33rd birthday was Saturday the 12th. When I saw my mom and grandma a few weeks ago they'd said they'd deposit some money into my bank account for my birthday. It's now Wednesday (nearly Thursday) and so far there have been no deposits. Maybe they changed their minds or maybe they just forgot. The Swede says I should email my mom and remind her, but I don't want to lower myself to reminding my mother to give me my birthday present.

    This might seem petty and selfish of me, but...

    Goddammit, I want my fucking birthday present!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

    Well I hope the Swede at least gave you something special.;)

    Do you email mom very often?
    Maybe you could tell her what you did on your b-day. Hint, Hint.
    I know it isn't much but here is a b-day hug.
    (((((HUG)))))

    Happy Birthday you beautiful youngin' LOL. If I had any extra money i would send it to you...Let's see, how can you "remind" mom and granny? Send them an email saying thanks for your present. That should kick them into gear!

    Love ya!

    Aww, Happy Birthday, Puss! Yeah, you could totally tell them about what kind of day your birthday was. If you give them a hint, maybe they'll remember. It would hurt my feelings if my mama forgot my birthday...I mean, I understand how you feel...In my opinion, it isn't so much the money, it's the warm feeling you get when someone remembers to do something special for you on your special day. If that's the only thing they could do, send you money, and they forgot to do that, I would feel a little dejected. And yeah, I do remember my Mother and Grandmother's birthdays in return. Hope things turn out well, love. And Happy Birthday!

    Thanks for listening to me whine, everyone. I know they didn't forget my birthday because I received a card in the mail a few days ago, but I guess they must have forgotten to make the deposit. Now I need to figure out how to say "where the fuck is my birthday present?" in the most diplomatic way possible.

    Thanks for the support, you wonderful people!

    First off, happy belated birthday, Puss!

    Second, I don't know WTF I'd do about the present. Honestly, I think if it were me, I'd just let it ride. It's bound to come up again sometime in the future, at which point you can let on that you didn't get one. You'll be the bigger person, and they'll feel bad that they forgot. That way if it's just a technical glitch or something you won't come across as greedy, and if not, their guilt will ensure a timely present next year.


    I'm sooo bad. :lol

    Happy Birthday PIB. So young and so smart.
    You were promised a b'day present and I think you should e-mail them and see if they forgot or maybe a mishap at the bank.(like that could possibly happen:lol.)

    Happy Birthday, my little darling one!

    I don't know what to say about your rellos letting you down on the cash thing, but I can relate to the feeling of disappointment. I hope they come through for you and send you enough jingle to get some outrageously sexy undergarments that make the Swede bang you like a drum. WOO HOO!

    Thanks, Heely, Bucky, and CL :)

    I sent my mom an email thanking her for the card and telling her about what a great birthday I had. The Swede brought me breakfast in bed and took me to the movies, etc, etc. Oh, and I started therapy and we've started collecting wine..

    And BY THE WAY...grandma said she was going to put some money in my account (well they both said that, but nevermind) and so far I haven't received anything.

    We'll see what happens.

    Nope.

    *sigh*

    My mom responded to my email, she thanked me for reminding her, said she'd forgotten to transfer the money and was really sorry about that. She said she'd be sure and transfer the money as soon as she sent that email, but when I checked my bank account there'd been no transfers. And there still haven't been any.

    I guess she must have changed her mind.

    I would not give up hope yet. Even when I make a simple deposit in my own bank it takes a couple days to show up. I would think that it would be even longer over seas.

    Yeah, but my mom and grandmother and I all have accounts at same US bank, and transferring money between accounts happens instantaneously. That's really the main reason why I decided to open up an American bank account. It's the easiest way to get money to me, since it's unwise to send cash in the mail and personal checks aren't used here.

    Puss, this has gone on long enough. Get your mom on the phone and say "WTF!?"

    Ya want I should call her for ya? I can be quite vicious, ya know.
