Present poll

For some reason, almost half my friends have birthdays in February and March, and I always feel bad I have to pick and choose among whose parties I go to based on financial issues. So here's a curious question, and I'd like to take a poll on this.

Poll #423398 Birthday present poll

You've been invited to a birthday party by a friend. He or she has obviously planned for it with a place for everyone, food, and maybe even entertainment. Do you bring a gift?

Yes, I always try and bring a gift, even if it's only a card or something
18(69.2%)
No, but I should... I keep flaking or have flaky money problems.
7(26.9%)
No, birthday presents are for little kids, not adults.
1(3.8%)
No, I don't like the idea of being coerced into buying people things...
0(0.0%)
No, no one got me a present, why should I?
0(0.0%)
No, the very fact I showed up should be gift enough!
0(0.0%)
No, [other reason - please explain]
0(0.0%)

Has it ever bothered you if you have a birthday party, and only a few bring gifts?

Never happened/Don't remember
2(7.7%)
Nope, I just like their company
18(69.2%)
A little, but I'd never say anything
5(19.2%)
Yes, it's bothered me to the point I alter my guest list for next time
1(3.8%)
