    Do you give out your correct birthday?

    I have to laugh because I always give a bogus birthday to anyone who has no business knowing it. For some unknown reason, I make myself older... shudder.... don't know why? I have been getting birthday wishes all this month.

    No, Facebook thinks I am about 100 years old. Or however old you can be to check the earliest year of birth they offered.

    When I don't have to, I don't give out my birthday. However, I have no problem telling my age.

    Hmm... I'm wondering who has to know your birthday and why you feel you need to give them a bogus one? Like when you're purchasing liquor and they have to check your ID by law?

    I've never given anyone whose business it wasn't a phony birth date, but I don't remember many occasions when I had the opportunity to. Just for the record, 3/26/1952.

    All of the websites that require registration to use, and that wont let you skip the birthdate question, that’s who.

    Yes, and at CVS when picking up a prescription. But I have no problem with that at all.

    I always lie on random forms. Then I can't remember what date I made up. I think Facebook thinks my birthday's in April.

    This website for one. I got a happy birthday greeting. My birthday is in October though... so not totally bogus.
