Being left out in Office parties
How would you feel if you where always left out of cake in the office i.e. Lets say its A's birthday and A sends out a email to all staff saying that theres cake and they must come but you dont get invited then a week later its B's birthday and again you do not get invited along with my boss. What would you all do egnore it all say something to A or B and ask why we just do not get invited? or am i overacting and leave it because honestly its starting to affect me everytime i see someone walk past my desk with cake i know again i have been excluded. and i work with these people everyday , should i think of looking elsewhere?

Useful responses all round. The most innocent reason could be that they're routinely using an old office email list that doesn't have your name on it. You might try simply sending them an innocent and cheerful Happy Birthday email at the right time.
