With Modern Technology, You Cannot Forget or Hide Your Birthday

🎂 With Modern Technology, you Cannot Forget or Hide Your Birthday Even if you Try

With Modern Technology You Cannot Forget or Hide Your Birthday 

 In the past, we would normally get a few birthday cards in the mail or your friends at work would plan to take you out for for lunch on your special day.

But this month I had a few surprises and thought I would mention some of my surprises. First of all my bank, who has been my bank since I was 16 years old, wished me a 'Happy Birthday' last week. I went to the ATM machine and after logging on, the screen showed a big birthday cake and said "Happy Birthday Kristin" which surprised me and I said out loud "What...how nice". Funny thing, there was a customer waiting behind me and I wonder what she thought. Just before I logged out and took my card, it wished me Happy Birthday again. I know that the bank has my personal information but it was a nice surprise.

I have a Facebook account and several Realtor pages, so between yesterday and today, I have had many pictures, email cards, virtual candy and flowers and well wishes on my page. It is always nice to hear from friends and co-workers and a few were great surprises.

This morning I had to look up an address so I went to the 'Google' site and to my surprise, there was a cake and presents on the search screen and when I touched the cursor, it said "Happy Birthday Kristin".

I opened up my email, and there were 4 or 5 emails from the stores and restaurants I eat/shop at and they all had 'Happy Birthday specials today on my birthday'.

With Modern Technology, You Cannot Forget or Hide your Birthday

 

While sitting in a seminar this morning (yes I still worked today), I looked on my Facebook app on my iPad and there on the Keller Williams Redlands page, there was a picture of me and a red velvet cupcake. Yummy as red velvet is my favorite and 'no calories' for virtual cakes.

And I stopped by my Board of Realtors as I walked in the door they wished me a Happy Birthday. What I didn't realize that they had already sent me an email greeting a few hours before.

The Brown Bag Lunch with our Attorney had many friends and co-workers from my former brokerage and some members of Women's Council of Realtors too. They were all wishing me a Happy Birthday.

With Modern Technology you Cannot Hide or Forget Your BirthdayThe point here is that our birthdates are programed into their software and generates a birthday greeting so if you are wanting to forget or hide your birthday from others, it is probably going to be hard.

Social Media is a nice way to remember all of your relatives, friends and co-workers. Plus I have a program I subscribe to called Birthday Alarms and it sends you email alerts and you can pick cards to send out. It is a special way to remember others. 

Oh, I almost forgot when I woke up this morning I had a text on my phone from one of my kids wishing me a 'Happy Birthday'. She is in a different time zone so it was just waiting for me when I turned on my phone.

Here is a special Birthday Photo from Angel, my friend's pet bird Angel. Joyce Dodd has a Bird Rescue and  has shows with her 6 performing birds. Angel here is her special girl.

Tonight, my husband is taking me to a nice restaurant and this establishment sent me a postcard last week asking me to come in and have a dessert on them to celebrate this month. We always go there on my birthday so the postcard was just icing on the cake!

🎂So do not try to hide your birthday as everyone will find out. Just enjoy it and eat cake.
