The day after my birthday I was walking down the corridor at work, when suddenly “a wild staff member appeared”. Now, usually, this staff member and I would exchange our “hello’s” with a nod or a comment like ‘nice day for it’ – you know, that type of passer-by banter.
But not this time, no.
They knew something I wouldn’t have guessed they knew and when this was revealed to me I nearly wet my pants! They said ‘Happy Birthday!’. My goodness, my eyes widened, my jaw dropped and I said (a little too enthusiastically) ‘OH THANK YOOOOU!’.
Haha! Ah, unexpected birthday wishes can be quite…
