Thanks CarolAnn! If I lived closer to you I'd make you a birthday cake also.

I threw a surprise birthday party for a woman who owns a big restaurant here once (when I owned my bar). She was turning 67 and had never in her life had a birthday party. When she walked in the door and we all hollered "Surprise", she started bawling. I didn't realize she had NEVER had a birthday party. I just can't imagine any mother not having a birthday party for her child or her own children not having one for her at some point.

When my stepdaughter came to visit me (we didn't really get acquainted until after her father and I divorced) and my daughter who is her half sister, I fixed her a Christmas stocking and it was her very first. Also fixed her an Easter basket and it was her very first. After she went to college and was a 2nd Lieu. in the Air Force, I still sent her Easter baskets as far away as San Remo, Italy.

I try to treat others as they would like to be treated and I try to remember my mom's saying, "If you can't say something good about someone, don't say anything." I, by all means, don't always live up to that but I really do try. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

This lady was obviously just a hateful witch that thought she would get her money back if she complained.

It's not so uncommon. When I was growing up, we never had what you all call a birthday party.....inviting friends who arrive with gifts and play games, eating cake afterward. On our birthday, we got to choose what we had for dinner, we got a grocery store refrigerator case cake and a card with $10. I can't remember any of us actually getting a present to open. We'd MUCH rather have the ten bucks anyway!

When we got older, since 4 of the 6 kids were born in August, we started calling a summer cookout "The August Birthday Party". There was a cake (somewhere in the kitchen, I think), and we'd have a big cookout, maybe play volleyball. If relatives came over, they came for the cookout .... no gifts were brought for the 4 birthday people. And that was ok .... it was more of a cookout than a birthday party anyway.

We never felt deprived, we never felt that we were missing anything. Remember, we were dirt-poor .... sometimes just being able to have food for dinner was a big event for us, let alone being able to have your FAVORITE food! thumbs_up.gif

I am actually almost an anti-birthday party person because I've seen too many ADULTS turn into the birthday version of a bridezilla. It's disgusting to watch and worse to be around them. Going thru the "birthday charade" with my immediate family is actually hard on me, because I view it as all fake-n-phoney, but I put on my plastic smile and do it because it's for them.

But my birthday? I am MUCH happier that it goes by unnoticed. Not because I don't like getting older ... I actually REVEL in getting older ... but because I don't view it as an important "accomplishment" that should be marked by some big self-centered blow out. It's why I tend to keep my BD a secret.... from friends, from family and ESPECIALLY from co-workers!! (office birthdays are the WORST!!)

(But when I turn 50 ..... I'm turning into a self-centered guest of honor with a big blow out!!! It will be my first B-Party and we're doing it up right! icon_lol.gif Y'all are invited! But no gifts!)

Perhaps we are just tired of foreigners coming into our country. Maybe you really should go home to Australia. What a wonderful idea! Save the US from your godawful cakes! LOL

GO HOME! We don't want you here in our country!

Well she says she is sick of foreigners coming to her country look what it says on her myspace page....

My husband is a gorgeous Ecuadorian and a great father to my boys.

I have to chime in here... how RUDE of her!!! YOUR HUSBAND is a U.S. Marine, willing to fight for this country, you have moved all over the place in support of him and our country, and she tells YOU to leave??? Yeah right!! I for one am thankful to people like you and your husband. I don't think I could move to all different countries like that. I hope all goes well for your move, and that you don't get any more NASTY customers...

I agree with LilyS, you should sent her an e-mail. your cake is totally adorable, and it looks like a lot of work went into it. Some people don't know how to appreciate anything. But of course she sound like she is mad...not at you but at life in total.
Best of luck next time.

I've also seen people say "excuse me" but use it for an excuse to BOWL YOU OVER. It's as if they are saying 'excuse me' but their actions are "get the h*ll out of my way".

geesh why was it ok for her husband a quote" foreigner " to be here and marry an american but it wasn't ok for you? geesh this woman must have her panties in a permanent twist.

her second email realy did shock me and as several already said what she's threatening you with is libel and slander- and you have proof of this. not encouraging another email to her but too bad one couldn't be sent to her by some lawyer etc lol informing her if she decides to go through with said threat; there could be legal consequences lol...

so when you go back to aussyicon_smile.gif bring me back something good! icon_smile.gif hubby's always wanted to live thelre.

foxymomma521 Oh yeah it is hard at times but it is well worth it, I love him with everything i have so i will follow him to the ends of the earth and back.....I guess the one thing this lady doesnt understand even though her hubby is from another country is that america just like so many other countrys are full of people from all over the world and she should be happy that people love her country enough to want to come here....
