I have a bad day! January 4 is my wife's birthday, and I completely forgot, because the date is the day where I had to do a presentation in front of the customers in the office. I happened to read a brief message from my brother in my wife's cell phone, which it said happy birthday. Oh, God! I immediately gave the cell phone, and intend to give hugs and kisses, and congratulated my wife. But, my wife already cranky and angry at me for forgetting this day. I get to work with a sense of uncertainty, because I had to do a presentation at the office, and may not be wrong. But problems at home had made a mess concentration. I ask for your help, myLotters. How I should solve this problem? I do not want to return from work, my wife is still mad at me. What should I do? Thank you for advice.

It is still the third for us for fifeteen more minutes, as I type this it says you made this discussion an hour ago. I would just be honest with your wife, tell her you forgot your birthday and that you are sorry that you did, if you felt you've been busy, tell you have been busy, and if you've felt this made you forget, tell her that as well, but tell her your sorry and would like to make it up to her, and that you feel so bad for forgetting her birthday...

Thank you for advice. I was having lunch when I read your response. From now on I will always remember my wife's birthday, almost blank when I give presentations. Could be fired if I gave a false presentation. Wow, that was close!

Well I hope that your wife has forgiven you for forgetting her birthday, and I am sure this is a lesson learned. I think it's only human to forget things like that from time to time, especially as a person gets older. With the presentation coming up, I am sure your mind was on it. I hope you have a wonderful day!

You should advise your wife to not say congratulations celebration or a birthday becomes a problem. I often advise my wife to not celebrate or congratulate birthday to me because I forbid it. And I also never said happy birthday to my wife. Remember, celebrate the birthday is the acts useless

There are families who have a habit of congratulating one of their members. There is also a casual in dealing with someone's birthday. I think that's fair, depending on the habit in the family. Thanks for the response, sir.
