Thanks for the Reminder Facebook

For the past week, every time I log into Facebook I am greeted with this:

Thanks Facebook Really?

Thanks Facebook. Yes, men probably forget their anniversary more than women. I know the cultural stereotype of the bumbling husband running home after work with flowers. I realize this will only be the second time I've celebrated my wedding anniversary. I know all that, but I still find the reminder a tad insulting. I appreciate reminders about friends birthdays (it's not easy to keep track of all of them) but this, no thanks!

It just seems so casual. As though it might change next week to say "Your anniversary of that trip you took to Mexico" or "Your anniversary of driving your dad's car for the first time" or "Your anniversary of buying that green shirt you wear all the time." Anyways, I suppose this is the world in which we live. We need a website to hold our hands and remember all of the important milestones in our lives. Sorry, [Cynicism Off /].

That little reminder represents the biggest, most meaningful and most important commitment I've ever made in my life. I'd like to think that I'll be able to remember the date on which I made it all by myself, squishy human grey matter and all.

What I'd really like to know is whether or not Facebook gives men a "little extra time" with the reminder. Any ladies care to chime in?

Just to prove I actually do remember it, our anniversary is October 10 - I love you Miranda!
