Birthdays - Either you remember before time or next year on time !
Kind of a make-break situation.... :-)
Sunday evenings are usually free , so was out with my gang.....abridged in number....was enjoying my regular one ....and then...
A couple ( according to me when A men and A women are together for a coffee cup better to call them as a company rather than individuals )....came in. Looked like it was there usual rendezvous.
Since, light travels faster than sound,people appear brighter before you hear them speak.
Acha.....so,they sat somewhat next to us and even before the AC could cool them off...she started......."This is the second time in two years .You missed it again ."
Generally,its a "gandi-baat" to listen to people's talk, but when they say at "surround" sound's the ears catch them .LOUD AND CLEAR.
Thought,he missed it again by not asking her father about there future. :-)
(...Apne beti ka haath mujhe de do...Uncle.....aka Future FIL .....Plz.......)
Galat Jawab. He missed her birthday.......and by how many days......
of what I heard....by 2 minutes.....
Pat came the reply....." I messaged you at 12 but,somehow never reached .
Oh brother....the door bell or your mobile phone will always ring when you are in the bathroom......Same with your birthday message.
"So,it never got delievered"- he WANTED TO ask...On this she said-"there is something called as delivery reports".
Oh my......somebody help this poor soul out.....kya hua....agar late ho gaye toh.....atleast he thought in his thoughts about her and wished her "happy birthday". So,what if the message never came.....This is direct dil-dil link.
NO.This is next-gen. If you miss you loose.
Birthdays are important.I agree.More important to wish also.But,does it really matters if you're late....may be genuinely late.No second chance. WHY ? When you say you understand the opposite person more than you do then why a pinch of time-lag nicks the relation that critically. There are times,when people don't remember there own birthdays.These are the people who remember "your"Birthdays. Religiously. But,galti toh ho jaati hai. Most important thing is wishing from your heart. Even if you forgot or you're late ,make a point to wish . This will be more than "wishing on time".
What say....this is what I follow.........or rarther started to follow after a few heavy doses :-(
And, the next time you message make sure you call.That's better & safe.
Atleast you have the right to say I gave you a call which got termed as a "missed call". Your Job done.
One call once a year....not a big-ticket na......to rekindle the relation.
And I'll like to add . DON'T MENTION THE WORD - TREAT . Come on . Are you that hungry to get one. Your job is to wish "janamdin mubarak" . FINISH. No hopefulnesses !
Rest,the birthday person is healthy enough to ask you if would like to have one.
Let me remember -- who's birthday is coming.......hmmmm........still time..........
