There’s no getting around it. No one deserves that dreaded happy belated birthday wishes from anyone, especially a loved one, but it’s inevitable we can forget about our nearest and dearest on their special day. It’s work getting the best of you; a friend’s personal problems sidetracking you; sometimes you just outright forget without reason, having to regrettably send happy belated birthday wishes.
So how do you make up for it? (Besides spoiling them to no end.) The best way to get on anybody’s good side is to make them laugh! That’s right; your run of the mill “Happy Belated Birthday…” won’t cut it. Plus, humour is great because you can be funny in so many ways: self-deprecating, philosophical, sarcastic, absurd, facetious, you name it. No matter what your personality, there’s a right message for any and everyone to cheer them up. (But please give them nice things too!)
