I am definitely not...
How many times that I have had misunderstandings with friends who 'expect' me to remember the dates of their important events, especially birthday but very unfortunate that I am not one of those that very good with dates. I can even forget the dates of the recent event, what more to say future or past?
Nowadays, since most of my friends are on Facebook, their birthdays will be published (if they choose to) and I will get notification when nearing the dates, which at least I get to go into action in preparing for any 'celebration' and stuff.
I am not trying to make an excuse for taking friendship for granted, but then again, friendship don't depends on 'celebration' aren't they? For me myself, I make known to people who I intended to celebrate those 'events' with thick skin asking what are they doing for me on that day.. at least I let them know what I want! I don't keep people guessing...
I recently got someone 'angry' mode by not able to remember the 'dates' which to me is just a plain childish act. I got loads of 'back stabbing' from this friend just because I forgot about the date, and it went on and on and on... I mean, if you meant to be a friend, and in the event I really forgot, can't you just buzz and tell me the date and ask me instead? Why do you have to go talk bad behind my back (expecting it to come back to me)!? So stupid to act like this right?
Anyway, I always tell people that I am not good in my dates, and in the event if they wanted me to get them something, better tell me earlier and right to my face.. Don't go spreading how hurtful you are when I forgot, and I am sure these words will come back to me one day... very sianz to tackle this kind of friendship issues..
How about you? Are you good with dates?
