The Phillies are sending follow-up emails to people who didn’t take advantage of their birthday “gift” four months ago.
Email from reader Michael:
My birthday is in October. I guess since these Phillies don’t play in that month, they are offering this absurd deal as an apology.
Email from reader Daniel:
My Birthday was last October..
This is like texting a friend and asking them why they haven’t personally thanked you for or liked the birthday wishes they put on your Facebook wall.* Don’t be that person, Phillies.**
*It is 100% acceptable to do a blanket post thanking people for all the wishes, and it’s OK to do it late the night of your birthday or the next day. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a needy addict who probably sends you invites to buy a tractor on their fake farm and you should unfriend them immediately.
**You know, earlier I joked about what the Phillies would’ve sent that sad Flyers kid had they been in that position…
The Phillies would’ve sent that kid a schedule magnet from 2013

… and right on cue, they embarrass themselves.
