I’ve always thought otherwise perfectly professional and rational adults spent too much time making a fuss over other people’s birthdays. In my office, it’s just another excuse to eat cake. And give absolutely dreadful gifts. I had a disappointing experience this time out. All I’ll say about it is that sometimes, it really is better to just not do anything at all. Sometimes, it’s better to leave the person thinking you just forgot… Or: Get a card. Let them buy their own tacky stuff. Nuff said!
