    If I was scheduled, of course I did.  I see no reason to have tried to get off work.  We always figure we can celebrate another day, after work or whatever.  Does sound teenagerish.

    If my birthday falls during the week, yes I work. It is a different story if it is on a weekend.

    Yep! I work on mine, my husbands, my children's, if I'm scheduled I'm working! I only work 3 months of the year and it's only on Saturday and Sunday, however I make incredible money. So if a birthday falls on one of those days, I work, with 5 kids, we need all the money we can get! Those 3 months (first weekend of August till the last weekend of November) of income pays for Christmas, school shopping, shoes, clothes, supplies, ect. And groceries! It also pays for their birthday parties and gifts. So it upsets them sometimes that I have to work on someone's birthday or mine, but they all understand why I do it. And I am glad I'm no longer a teenager! I've been working since I was 16, (had a child at 15) and now I'm 32, and loving every moment of getting older!
