    Have a nice birthday by the way!

    cheers :top2:

    but i know my mum is telling the truth. she told me this morning in an argument, so the only reason she told me was to be spiteful.

    :rofl: you have no idea how funny that is. my parents are completely against drinking, and all for being with family rather than friends.

    i'm not relying on them, but i don't think its that much to ask that he at least acknowledges the fact it is my birthday?

    tbh i just needed to rant. so sorry if i offended anyone coz i complained about my dad :rolleyes:


    also i was never told santa was real
    i must say you have a fine pair of parents there! never telling you santa was real!

    STUFF 'EM!!!

    BTW: you didn't offend me, i do realise people have fathers, everyone does, sperm has to come from somewhere, it was just my initial reaction.

    lol everyone finds that amazing. i was never told as a child that santa was real. i never got presents from him either, so i always thought i had been a really bad child

    ok, i didn't wanna offend everyone, i realise i am lucky to have both my parents still, i'm just a bit annoyed that one of them is ignoring my birthday.

    :rofl:

    same with me, but only when i stayed awake all night once to see the tooth fairy

    i was very disappointed :sadnod:
    haha yeh, my mum claimed she just came in to fluff my pillow while suspiciously hiding my tooth behind her back. I also remember writing crafty letters to the toothfairy asking for one hundred pounds in four installments. :yep:

    anyway, whatever happens on your birthday, have yourself a nice time with friends if not family. x

    They might have thrown you a suprise party, although you don't make it seem likely. To be honest, if one of my parents wouldn't do something about my birthday, I'd be very pissed at them, but the best thing is just to go and do something with a few friends.

    Anyway, a friend of mine was feeling that his parents didn't do enough for his 18th either and he got a suprise party, so maybe you're lucky, but simply don't know it yet. Are you the oldest btw?

    And if your parents don't do anything special, just try and ignore it and do stuff with friends.

    You are not showing off, therefore you should be sorry for nothing. Anyone who might have been offended should of picked up the hint in the title.

    Or should we be sorry for having 2 arms and 2 legs where some people have lost limbs?

    Or should people be sorry they went to college when other people didn't?

    just ignore him... what a ****. Just go out with your friends instead and mention how fun it was.
    He's a **** because he hasn't bought a card yet?

    i love that everyone is so optimistic about that

    but why would my mother have told me in an argument that my father hasn't done anything for my birthday?

    Also, my dad never gets me anything (well everything rest of the year but not birthdays) - I just don't see the need for him to get a card that means nothing.
    I'm happier knowing he's alive and well - whilst paying the heating and leckie bills.

    Heating is a gift too

    If it is a surprise, why would she want you to know? And what does it matter now, anyway? You don't know for certain whether or not he has done anything, so just wait and see. I don't see what you're trying to achieve through this thread, sorry. Not speaking to him would be childish, as would a confrontation. I don't see what you can do other than be patient and wait.

    ok, my 18th is on sunday, and i just found out my dad hasn't got me anything for it. not even a card. normally on birthdays we also have a family meal out with all my siblings included (there are five kids). but this year my dad is refusing to ask any of them to a meal.

    what would anyone else do in this situation?
    Perhaps it's meant to be a surprise. Wish for the best. Oh, and happy birthday in advanced
