I absolutely can’t stand when you have plans with a friend and you say, “Okay, lets meet up at _______ (some specific time),” the time is confirmed by your friend and plans are set. Then the day comes around when you are going to carry out the plans that you have made. You clear your schedule, turn down that request you have to go shopping with your other friends, postpone the school project you were supposed to work on with your group, take a shower, get ready, and wait around. You show up at the meeting spot, maybe 15 or 20 minutes early, then you get a text from that friend saying, “Hey, sorry I don’t think I can make it today, something came up.”
Oh really? Something came up? Yeah, well maybe you could have told me that four hours ago, before I got all ready, and turned down the other invitations I got from other (cooler) people. Not to mention the time it took for me to drive to the meeting place, find a parking spot, pay the meter and its all for nothing.
After that happens, my day is wasted and I’m pissed off.
So here’s a warning to you, the people who do this type of thing to your friends: you are now officially 2 notches down in the ranks on that person’s friend list.
