My experiment proved overwhelmingly that people will say "happy birthday" when forced to – oops - faced with, someone announcing it is their birthday – and you don't even have to make eye contact!
Only one person did not – they responded "Is it really? I feel bad, I didn't get you anything" and then walked off. LOL Obviously they did not feel bad enough to say happy birthday!
I think I elicited around 100 "Happy Birthday"s yesterday! :-) Office workers, delivery men, couriers, even the new post lady, were not spared the announcement!
I was so spoilt – the crutches probably helped there – with people at my beck and call all day.
My friend Miss Gee drove me home and then we had a "girls" evening of wine & nibbles. Most enjoyable!
