Eduviges Villatoro’s only wish for his 61st birthday was to spend the day eating delicious cuisine and celebrating with his children, grandkids, and all other loved ones. However , nobody realized that it was his birthday.
Even more unfortunate is the fact that none of Eduviges’ relatives were able to make it to the birthday celebration that Eduviges had planned at a restaurant in Veracruz, Mexico.
Eduviges was left alone with a birthday cake and an empty table throughout the scene, which was quite upsetting. Eduviges was still waiting for his visitors to arrive at the restaurant even while other patrons were eating and enjoying themselves there.
After what seemed like an interminable amount of time, Eduviges eventually got to his feet and made his statement. He stated this with tears in his eyes, “Today is my birthday; I became 61 years old, and I’ve been making preparations for a feast to have tonight.
I had planned to spend my birthday with my family at this restaurant, so I went out and got a birthday cake as I had hoped that my children, my grandkids, and my wife would all be able to attend, but as you can see, no one showed up.”
Because of this, I am now going to ask if anybody is interested in joining me to celebrate my birthday and sing “Happy Birthday.” If you could do that for me, I would be forever thankful”.
After Eduviges made the news about his birthday, it did not take visitors more than a few seconds to join him at his table for the celebration of his special day. They approached Eduviges one at a time and each gave him a bear embrace.
They went as far as moving several tables closer together to host the birthday celebration the guy had requested and, even though none of the visitors had ever met Eduviges before, they all gave the 61-year-old man their support and sympathy he needed at the moment.
On the other hand, Eduviges eventually disclosed that the birthday celebration had really been a cover for a sociological experiment!
The purpose of the experiment was to see how individuals would respond when placed in such a predicament, but the results were much more surprising than anybody could have anticipated.
