Morning Quickies

previous post: Aw, Nuts



  1. Celebrating the wrong birthday is hilarious. I knew someone who named their kid “Summer” even though they were born in the middle of December. They decided that the kid’s birthday was too close to christmas, and celebrated his birthday in July instead.

    Kid had no idea.

  2. A boy called Summer? Now that’s just gay.

  3. Hahahah, I love Melissa’s. That must be such a weird realization to find out that your birthday is wrong.

    Did anyone else feel old reading that she was born in 1991? :X

  4. MyJobIsTheSuck’s friend’s have an even BETTER idea there. I feel sorry for people who are born just after Christmas (like my sister) as they never really get to celebrate birthdays.

    These all made me smile (if not chortle) for a change.

  5. crashball, nowhere in MJITS’s post is gender ever mentioned…

    the 1991 thing did make me feel old, but I don’t know why. My youngest brother was born in 1990. I wonder why Mellisa thinks that the SS office has the right date but her perents were wrong. It seems more likely that the government got it wrong, or am I just a tin hat crazy?

  6. Sean’s joke is the same line my bff gave me when she first told me that she wasn’t a fan of that song (“Naturally” by Selena Gomez and the Scene)… Kinda want to know how old Leah is, quoting Selena Gomez in the first place. My only good excuse for knowing her music is babysitting an 11-year-old girl. (My bff has little sisters, in case you were wondering what her excuse was.)

  7. @Skinner

    MJITS stated near the end “and celebrated HIS birthday in July instead” (emphasis added)

  8. @Skinner
    Gender was mentioned, ‘celebrated his birthday in July instead.’


  9. Can someone explain what Michael meant by you were in prison?

  10. @skinner: I believe 1991 was recent enough so that her parents would have filed for her SSN at the hospital the day she was born, so it’s unlikely it was screwed up. I suppose it’s possible the date might have been right on the form but was keyed in wrong by some data entry clerk at the social security administration, but I’ve never heard of such a thing happening.

    It’s more likely that her birthday just drifted over time because her parents are inattentive scum-sucking weasels who constantly forgot her birthday and then told her it was actually a week later when she cried about it. Her birthday was originally January 23rd, but by the time she was old enough to track her own birthday and stop trusting her meth-head parents, her birthday had drifted to August 17th.

  11. @Shorma: If you can’t understand a joke on Lamebook, it’s generally safe to just assume it’s talking about a penis. Things are much easier to understand around here if you assume everything is a dick joke.

  12. Haha @Sensible Madness So true.

  13. Haha ShiroNezu, I didn’t know what you were talking about with Sean’s post, as it decided not to come up on my internet and I searched everywhere for it thinking I was going crazy….eventually figured it out :p
    Anyway, yes…. it scares me that I teach children who weren’t even alive when I finished high school

  14. Or a gay joke.

    @skinner, please read several posts after yours for proof of the gender thing.

  15. I feel like 1991 is so young just because it’s in the nineties. I’m 1988 but it seems like a world of different between 1988 and 1991. Maybe that’s just me.

    My friend used to have two birthdays, a fake one at near the end of school term for summer and her real one during the summer holidays. She made the fake one cause she hated having her birthday when school was out as people forgot and didn’t get her presents. Sad but true.

    Actually thought the first one was pretty funny, but maybe that’s because “driving stick” is such a strange expression to me in the first place.


  16. Melissa’s status is ripped off of Fmylife. That status was the top of their most liked list. Lame.

  17. thank you tixx. I was just about to say that I had seen it somewhere, but I couldn’t remember where.

  18. I don’t understand why people do that, just copy statuses. So it’s not actually true for her? Then why post it? =/


  19. Hahaha @tixx actually, I posted it on fmylife. Someone else posted it on here

  20. THIS LEGITIMATELY HAPPENED. i seriously just got back from having them change it to the right date…. I was born out of state so it was the governments fault for having the wrong date in the system

  21. ouch. I am glad it’s posted here bc I don’t check fmylife.

  22. malefebvre: Pleased to make your acquaintance. You have vigilantes protecting the copyright on your grief here.

  23. MyJobIsTheSuck’s story is funnier than any of these status.

  24. At least BritishHobo and I are in agreement

  25. I liked all of these including the first comment.
    It makes me want a ‘Best of Lamdbook Community’ section, where you can also link back to where the comment originally came from.

  26. MsBuzzkillington

    I remember when kids born in the early 90’s were still just babies.

    Now they are all grown up. That does make me feel old.

    Great first comment btw. Sounds like a tragic story though, poor kid.

  27. Melissa’s fake birthday is really, really close to mine. O.O

  28. lol

  29. Personally I liked Dominic’s status. I don’t feel any higher either reading these posts 🙁

  30. Chewbacca shagger

    I have daughters that were born in the ’90s and it is really uncomfortable when they bring their friends around. I always thought it would be great, now i just feel like a dirty old man.

  31. hm. I stopped saying “I want to learn to drive stick” when the guys at work started snickering and making stupid comments (most of which went over my head). It took me awhile (not really, someone took me aside and explained it to me) to stop saying that. Lesson learned.

  32. The Salmon Mousse

    Lightening and thunder both come at the same time. If only it were that easy…

  33. Facebook purgatory

  34. Regarding the wrong birthday thing, that happened to me about 8 years ago when I first started doing taxes online instead of on paper. My SSN and DOB weren’t matching up. I called the social security office and after asking a million questions to confirm it was me, they said they had my DOB as October 22, when it is actually October 20. I had to go to a social security office with my birth certificate to get it changed.

    So, I’m wondering why this girl believes the social security office over what is on her birth certificate?
