So, I couldn't get into mylot to post and responded discussions yesterday. So, I had some free time to talk to my friend on the phone on the evening. I suppose to meet her at the Chinese restaurant around 7:00 P.M. When I arrived there and ready to park my car, she just called me that she couldn't make it here. Because she just clean up the house, and she was so exhausted after all the chores. That really pissed me off. I told her, if she couldn't make it, she should call me earlier. Gosh, would that make you mad?

Yes, that would really make me mad. At the very least she could have called or texted and said she was stuck or couldn't make it. And now that it's the next day have you heard from her? Did she say she was sorry? If not, I'd be even more mad at her.

She didn't even said sorry, that really, really pissed me off for that. I would done the same to see how she felt about it. That is not right about friendship. She should call me earlier to let me know. So, I can turn back or not going out at all.

Hey Clorissa, Yes that would make me really mad especially after putting effort into meeting up with someone. This has happened to me many times. I later became more assertive and told my friends that if they had a change of plans they need to notify me in good time because it's awful to be stood up.

Oh yeah. It was totally unacceptable. I was looking forward to it, and all the sudden, the plan has changed, and I have to dine alone myself there. It would be cruel for her to do that. I told her, if I stand her up at the moment, how would she feel about it.

Oh, yes, that would make me mad. Looking at the time, surely she must have known that you must already be on the way to the restaurant. Calling you just before the meeting time to tell you (last second) that she's "too tired" is kind of appauling. I have a friend who is flakey like that all too often. She's pulled that on my other friend several times - plan something and then pull out last second. But she doesn't call like your friend! Last time my friend got stood up, and she didn't hear from the flakey friend til later that day . . . she claimed she worked all night and just HAD to sleep with no energy to meet her for coffee. Well why didn't she at least have the sense to call her? My fried was furious - with good reason!

Well, u know inconsideration always gets under my skin! How can you be so inconsiderate of other peoples time, emotions, feelings, things and everything that people take for granted when it comes to others, but themselves? Just pure selfishness and ignorance Taripre$
