Alright, i'll be honest with this. I hate it when people give you or wanna give you some birthday presents JUST BECAUSE you gave them a present on their birthday and they will feel guilty if they do not give you one on your birthday.
And your "old friend" forgot your birthday present.
And when people openly declare that their birthday is coming soon, is today, is 3 days away, or that they are turning 16 soon or happy birthday to myself, cause that is just plain "action"(Like what we Singaporeans always say). Meaning pretentious, cause the main motive behind all these messages is to remind people to wish you happy birthday and most important of all, to remember to give you a present on your birthday.
