I did it yesterday. My mother (85 years) called me yesterday about 19:## evening. I pick up the phone....
She: Hi Son can I speak with misses ...
She: I like to congratulate ....
Me: (silent oh f***....)
I don't really care about such Dates except my only son ones
It does not solve my Problem, but it answers my question
My wife and my mother share a birthday (except for the year )
. The bad news is I'd be in seriously deep custard if I forgot.
. The good news is I get two lots of hints/reminders.
In almost 50 years together, I haven't forgotten yet. (I'm sort of one-up. She forgot our anniversary a few years ago.)

Never had a wife but I'm terrible with dates so I feel your pain. Sometimes I have to remind myself what day Christmas is. Pretty much the only dates I remember are work-related and my own birthday. And that's just because I've had others remind me of it for over thirty years
This will earn you a permanent entry in your record, which they will recite (among all the others) whenever they need 'proof' what kind of evil person you are. After you heard that litany once too often and try to shrug that old baggage off, you will not only be evil. You will also be uncaring and cold.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
As long as I remember the wife's birthday I'm OK, all the rest she will remind me.
- Better than google calendar because it self programs and self recharges
- seems to find own way home (i.e. no need for 'where's my phone' app)
- free/bonus cooking app (do ask - not all models have this)
- makes me do other things I don't feel like doing yet,
- way more expensive.
- been told difficult to upgrade but not tried that yet

Or the trick question "you know when my birthday is, right?"
"Uhhh... Sure I do?"
I never remember the exact date.
It took me about 25 years to get my parents birthdays right, what makes any girl think I can remember hers faster?
And I'm now at an age that by the time I'll remember hers I'll be forgetting it pretty soon as well
My condolences, they say elephants have good memory, but it's nothing compared to a wife and a forgotten birthday. Decades from now, you (and everyone within earshot) will still be hearing about it.
