Birthdays can be an exciting time. You’re showered with attention, food, love, and presents. However, not everyone enjoys their birthday. Depending on a person’s past, it might trigger memories best forgotten. But for many of us, birthdays are a reminder that we’re one year older. As the years tick away, that could make us less thrilled about celebrating the big day.
In a recent TikTok video by user @latroxstyle, she shared a special moment from her mother’s 75th birthday while they were out to eat at a restaurant. Unfortunately, the gesture didn’t go as planned. Get ready to chuckle at her response. She was not having it!
We think everyone can empathize with her mom. Sometimes, you’re just not in the mood for public attention! However, you must admit it’ll be a memory she won’t soon forget. Let’s see how the TikTokers feel about it. User @LadyJaeTu said, “I felt her frustration, but I would still LOL!” @voulachristou replied, “75 not dead! LMAO! Happy Birthday!!” Another user remarked, “Omg, this took me out. LOL! Happy Birthday!” @Belle teased, “The lady in the back singing along. LMAO!” @Casey joked, “It’s the “not dead” for me.” @Sue.me.tra replied, “Mom was dead serious about not making a scene.” @Leslie Hovarter disclosed, “I think she secretly loved it.”
We think she loved it, too. However, not everyone agrees. A few viewers suggested that this might have caused her mom some anxiety. But @latroxstyle said her mom doesn’t have social anxiety, and we’re sure she never would’ve put her in a situation that would make her uneasy. They’ll probably be laughing about this for years to come. Let’s hope they can gather next year and celebrate in style again!
