“Today is yours,” we tell people on their birthday. “Enjoy it.”
But sadly, nobody, not even Einstein, has owned that much time. If any. And in case we forget, the universe likes to remind us of that.
Bought 60 doughnuts for the office to celebrate? Too bad, you’ll need to self-isolate and work from home. Baked yourself a cake? Oops, the floor ate it all.
So what do we do when we get the short end of the stick? The only thing there’s left. Laugh. Here’s an exclusive Bored Panda list of the most unfortunate birthdays. Enjoy!
