I have a co-worker who is throwing herself a birthday party. Am I wrong for thinking that this is tacky? She sent out invites and even expects gifts as she put the link to her Amazon wish list on the bottom of the email. We have to pay for admission to where she is having it and she has hinted around at someone providing her a cake. The place she is having it is where kids often have their parties (don't want to be specific never know who's reading ) so it's going to cost me about $40 if I go and bring a gift. Usually for birthdays my group of friends goes out to a nice restaurant and we all pay for the birthday girl's dinner/drinks and we all chip in on a gift card to that person's favorite place to shop. I guess that wasn't good enough for her. Anyways.....thoughts? Is it normal for an adult to give themselves a birthday party? :huh: p.s. It's not like the girl never had a birthday party before....if that was the case I would be for it.
