Not-so-happy birthday to you...
We've all had some disappointing birthdays. Just remember, even if a loved one forgets your big day or no one shows up to your party, it could be worse.
Way worse -- like when one man allegedly hired an undercover police officer to carry out a hit on his own wife as a "present" to himself.
Turns out people have been "celebrating" turning a year older in odd -- and sometimes unfortunate -- ways for a while.
Check out some of the worst birthday mishaps in the past years.
