You were arrested on January 1st and the police told you that you would be released on your birthday.
Being arrested and facing the possibility of jail time can be a terrifying and overwhelming experience. The uncertainty of not knowing when you will be released can add an extra layer of stress and anxiety to the situation. However, if you are told that you will be released on your birthday, it can provide some solace and a sense of hope.
In my personal experience, being told that I would be released on my birthday gave me something to look forward to and helped me to stay positive during my time in custody. It also helped to take some of the pressure off of my family and loved ones, as they knew that I would be home on 14th February.
