We Got Ya Wednesday: Birthday Blues
Every Wednesday CJ and I hand in our radio cards and trade them in for our psychologist degrees. Okay, not really, but we do try to help with We Got Ya Wednesday.
If you're a Wolf listener and maybe need some advice, from dating and relationships to money and family we're here to listen and maybe give you some advice from an outsider. Whether it's serious or lighthearted we're willing to help you out as best we can.
This week is more on the serious side.
Here's the email we got:
Dear CJ and Jess,
It was my birthday over the weekend and my family had a party in the back yard. There weren't many of us, but my daughter came and brought her new boyfriend and his 3 year old son. I was surprise, because thought that she was the only one coming. I wasn't overly thrilled, but tried to be cool about it. The boyfriend gave the kid a Sharpie and a glass of grape juice, both of which wound up leaving their mark. Later, when I was going to blow out my candles, the little kid jumped in and blew them out for me. In the process, I watched his spittle sprinkle a majority of the cake. Everyone thought it was so cute. I did not and was having a hard time hiding it. When the cake was passed to me, I politely declined. My wife told me I was being a jerk and just eat a piece of cake. Now, somehow, I am being blamed for being the jerk who ruined my own birthday. Am I?
There's a lot to unload here, but I understand where he's coming from. Especially right now with everything going on with COVID-19, no one should be blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Personally, I think cupcakes are the new birthday snack of 2020 to avoid situations like that.
But he should have put on a happy face, he's just a baby after all.
What do you think, is he being a jerk? Text us through The Wolf Mobile app, leave us a comment on Facebook or give us a call at 454-9770.
