In my case, of course I will be upset!!! Specially if I have done a great preparation because I believe her/his story. There are people who tell lies for a joke specially when you are friends. It happened to me before. My friend is fond of making jokes. He told me that I have to prepare because we were invited by another friend to go out for some fun. I was so excited preparing for the event, when I am ready to go.. he said,no.. he is just joking. I almost hit him because I'm upset of what he did. Did similar thing happen to you? How did you react to the situation? Oh!! for me, it;s not an easy joke!! he should learn a lesson from it. Just want to hear your ideas.

Hi bebs. I agree with you. It is not a nice thing to do with none. If your friend lie every time how you can have confidence in him/her? Without confidence you don't have friendship right? cheers

My friends know better than to lie to me whether it's a joke or not. They know that that kind of joke is not funny, and that if they were to lie to me as a joke or not, I would no longer be their friends. This is the way I'd expect them to be were I to turn around and do the same thing to them, and we all know it.

yes I agree with you!! You have good points in here. It is really not fair when you trust your friend and then he is just making fun of you? Not a good one. Thanks for the reply.
