One of my best friends (we've been friends for about 9 years now and best friends for about 5 years) forgot my birthday three years in a row or deliberately made plans on the day of, despite being asked to keep the date free because we knew we would be doing something for it. I was mad that he pulled this crap three years in a row. How would you feel if a close friend had done this to you?
Are you still getting gifts from people that you didn't see over the holidays?
Have you had any car trouble because of the weather?
How far do you and your SO live from each other? Do you have to pay a toll to get to where they are?
