A WOMAN has convinced herself that all the 83 friends who wished her a happy birthday on Facebook really mean it.
Emma Bradford was overjoyed to find messages from so many people, although the vast majority would have taken no more than five seconds to write.
She said: “It’s times like this when you find out who your true friends are. My sister only bought me some jewellery but Mark at work went to all the trouble of typing ‘happy brithdag x’.
“And a girl I went to primary school with posted three birthday cake emojis – how sweet is that?
“My pathetic husband wrote me a heartfelt message about how much he loves me in an actual card but couldn’t be bothered to put it on social media. What a bastard.
“I want to thank everyone for the messages. It’s lovely to feel popular – especially with people from companies I worked for years ago who I only spoke to twice anyway.”
Francesca Ryan, who posted ‘Have a good one, hun’, said: “Is Emma that boring cow I met in the pub once, or am I thinking of a different one?”
