It's never bothered me. I prefer not to work on my birthday, but if I have to, I have to. I work erratic hours.
I always liked going to school on my birthday. In grade school you got to bring cupcakes and things. In High School I had Finals on my birthday. What are you going to do?
My Man's B Day in on Halloween. Sometimes he takes the day off, he did a lot when the kids were little so he could take them Trick or Treating. Once in a while, if I'm not working he takes my birthday off work, so we can go out to lunch and have a Nooner.
