CRAP, forgot my wedding anniversary.....

Well this sunday My wife comes in the room with a card and says "happy anniversary" well i must have turned white as a ghost, she looks at me and says, "you forgot, didnt you?" Now i start mumbling and i say , "no". (she always knows when im lying...) ....so i open the card, my hands are shaking etc....so she leaves the room..

now before the young ladies in here call for me to be shot and hanged, ive been married for 27 years and have never ever forgot my anniversary, in fact i usually send yellow roses to her at work, take her away for a nice weekend, or night on the town etc, but this time i just plain forgot...I blame my dam daughters for not reminding me.

so I tell her im gonna go get her car washed, and i shoot down the florist....i tell the girl there my predicament and tell her she has to get a dozen roses delivered to her like now...she agrees to get them delivered asap..so $80.00 later I run to get a card, get the car washed and go home.....the flowers come about an hour later...she answers the door, says ooooh, and i give her the card...

now she says, "you just got these today didnt you?" ...again i say "of course not" (dont think she bought it) she really hasnt said too much about it but i know she knows i forgor our anniversary, shes not mad or anything but i just feel bad and i just cant beleive that i forgot it...but ill make it up to her somehow........

i guess i deserve these :nono:

lol that sucks i only have had a GF for the past 4 years and dont really think that anythign really ahs to be celebrated since there is no set day on when we started dating but i guess its the 16th of march but man do i get put in the dog house if i forget. i forgot the past 2 years but i got it this year. lol the one year she didnt even say anthing about it for 2 weeks, she was just pissed the whole time.

y dont women just tell the men like the week b4. like hey its soon our annerversery.wtf i cant remember what i did yesterday.

when i get married i might just get the date tattooed on my hand so i remember.
but yeah i could see here being very upset after being together 27 years, now you gotta spend twice as much to make her happy. lol and ur in the dog house. no tender loving for you for a couple of months. lmao

I learned some time ago that it's not the gift itself so much as it is the thought behind it and, in this case, the timing.

You did the best damage control available to you. Once in 27 years isn't a a bad record.

that isnt a bad idea, will get expensive, but still a good idea...

.shes not even mad really, im just sure shes pretty disapointed...shes the best, she has to be to put up with me for all these years.... ive never ever cheated on her or anything like that,,,i would never do anything to hurt her, but i just feel real bad for forgetting and i really cant do anything to fix that, just to let her know how sorry i am about it and it wont happen again, .....

then again, maybe she beleived me that i didnt forget

I agree shanman, one little card would have been all it would have taken....not much i can do about it now...

I feel soooo sorry for you Guys... Jack... find something nice for every day of the week... until you get away on the trip... it doesn't have to cost anything.. you can make it small stuff... like cooking dinner... sending stuff to her job...(or house if she doesn't work) back rubs... bubble baths...whatever it takes to open that dog house door...


But I thought about forgetting mine before I got married... so I got married the Saturday after Thanksgiving... I can never forget... even if I try... but I torture my wife by getting something for here and having it wrapped then placing it on top of the TV... so she can see it... but not open it...

maybe she did believe you, but remember if she does believe you could always use the excuess that you didnt get to send her roses to work this year so you figured you would send some every day for a week or something. it doesent have to bee a dozen a day or anything. and if she believe that you forgot, then it can also be a way to make up.

chicks love getting gifts at work, makes them feel loved

Jack - I feel for you. Sorry to hear that. That is one of the worst things a guy can do. My advice (not that I have sage advice for an older wiser bad mfr like you so take it with a grain of salt as it comes from a once divorced almost re-married mfr):

1. Admit guilt - just say yes I forgot - I got busy, I was distracted, I am weak, I am dumb, you are good looking, I am not, all that **** - maybe smell some pepper spray to well up a small tear or something or have your buddy clock you in the face before you "enter stage right"

2. Go to Pro Flowers they have a nice roses once a month for 3 months package you can get relatively inexpensive or something else really nice - best flowers out there - throw out that local florist card I only use Pro Flowers

3. Write a poem (or steal one and modify so it looks like yours) about why she means so much to you, etc. or write down something nice that happened each year for the last 27 years - something sappy like that

That along with your planned vacation you should be aiight. Of course you could just do the vacation and I am sure she will get over it but it is like AA - the first step is in denial - until you admit fault you can't move on. If she has been with you 27 years I am sure if you admit you made a mistake she will let it go, etc. Good luck!

I learned the hard way many years ago a simple life lesson...If you always want to remember an anniversary or birthday for the rest of your life...forget it once.

Shan's dead right about the thought and timing. .

Even if you can't write for ****, write her a poem about just how kick azz she is, and bring her breakfast in bed for a week. And don't forget the diamonds.

27years... that's great Jack and it's really showing your age!!! Just messin with ya!

This is a ad for a Palm Pilot.... get it, program it with a alarm for like a week and a day ahead...that way you never forget!! But yeah, forgetting is worse than a cheap gift. The cheap gift still says you remembered....

Jack, get the wifey on here and we'll tell her you're a great guy and blah blah blah... do our part to help out...cause ya know all that 'in you've been doing on here sure didn't help!!!
