Are you annoyed when you have to go to work/school on your B-day?

I don't even celebrate no more. I turned 21 2 years ago, no sense now. It was funny last year XD
Andy: Happy birthday babe! ^w^
Cheryl: *watching tv* Wait what?
Andy: How...
Cheryl: OH SHIT IT'S MY BIRTHDAY X'D

I actually forgot...

I have had to work on my birthday for several years now. I do not like it but I am forced to work and have no choice. I like to celebrate my birthday with friends and family - not necessarily someone from work I don't give two sh*ts about which is usually the case...

I usually celebrate my birthday with my mother since we're both int he same month. WE pick a weekend so working on my birthday doesn't bother me.

My co-workers and students make it fun to work on my birthday but I do sometimes think it would be nice to have the day off

im annoyed when i have to work, but i always wished my birthday was during school because then the class sings happy birthday and you bring treats. (i was a summer baby). i did take classes during the summer once in college, and i enjoyed it.

While I don't like celebrating my birthday (I mean, who wants to get older, right? ) I wish I could take the day off! BLAH!

My birthday was on a Friday this year.. I requested it off SIX MONTHS in advance (the entire weekend) because you only turn 21 once. I mean, I didn't expect to be pregnant by the time my birthday came up, but what can you do?

However... Knowing I had HUGE plans for the weekend (including reservations at a nice restaurant, and a day planned at Six Flags,) they scheduled me without asking me to work. LAST MINUTE, because the other lady that did the same shift called to take the weekend off. There was ONE other person who could have worked, and they didn't even ask him... I was so upset!

If I'm scheduled beforehand because I forgot to request it off, no big deal. If it's during the weekdays, I really don't care, I'll take the weekend off. (Even though I'm a summer baby, so I had all the free time in the world.) I actually prefer my birthday to come on a payday week, lol, otherwise I wait to celebrate it normally. I just HATE when they do stuff like turn around and schedule you after you've been promised the day off for MONTHS!

My birthday is just another day to me. I get a day older every day why the big celebration.

I don't really celebrate. Others do for me because for some reason they love me but to me it's just another day. I never get what I really want for my B-Day anyway.

Slightly annoyed, but I don't really mind, so long as I get a good while to myself to celebrate

I think the last time I was bothered by it was kindergarten. I remember being really upset at the injustice of it all. I got over it.

My birthday is in June, so growing up I never had to go to school! Last year was the first year I ever had to work on my birthday (as it was the first year I had been in the workforce) and I was fine going in! My coworkers were lovely and I met my friends for lunch.
