Two days ago, I already told my friend that, I am more than happy to take her and her kids to the Aquarium. She was excited about it, and I am more than willing to take the kids to see fishes, since I like kids very much. We already talk about at 1:00 P.M. sharp. I called before 1:00 P.M. no one answer the phone. I called again 15 minutes after 1:00 P.M. no one answer the phone. 10 minutes before 2:00 P.M. no one answer too. So, I arrived at her apartment, and knock on the door several times. She called, and she said that she was too sleepy and tired, she rather cancel it. Gosh, she should text me or call me before hand if she doesn't want to go. I felt stood up, and left. Don't you get mad when no one give you heads up?

Well, I planned to ignore her phone calls for the next few days. I don't care if that will be Christmas or not. I just couldn't understand people would do something like that. If she treated me like a friend, she should give me a heads up. Not doing something like that.

hi Clorissa thats really rude of her not to call you and let you know she felt that she could not come after all. I would have been teed off too as all she needed to do was just let you know before that she had decided she did not want to go.Thats not the way to treat a good friend at all.em]angry[/em]

that is right. I felt let down and betrayed. Not that serious. I just hate to be prepared, and the last minute, after I arrived her apartment, outside of her door, she called me and said, "hey, I can't go, neither are the kids. Sorry!" Well, forget it. I just leave, and I might not gonna take her calls for the next couple weeks even if she need my help.

Hi clorissa123, If in your case, I would be so disappointed about my friend's irresponsible doing and I will not easily accept her invitation next time. Some people do not like to keep promise and they do not feel shame on it. I try not to make friends with those. No matter it is regarding business or leisure, I treat every appointment seriously. This shows our respects to others, and it is an important manner. You're right, if someone who wants to postpone or cancel an appointment, they should tell us in advance but not the last minute. Have a nice day! agonyaunt69 (11:20pm 21 Dec 2009, Hong Kong time)

She is really irresponsible for her action at all; and I was really mad about that. She could simply pick up a phone and let me know that she could not make it or something like that. I won't mind, and I won't that mad. Oh well, forget it. Good friend won't do such thing to each other.

well,it is quite annoying as their maybe reasons such as valid one but have you caught her lying it is another statement which need a further explanation as it is really a waste of time waiting for something and it never push through..

Maybe she is lying too, I had considered it. So, I don't want to waste another breath to push for explanation. I am ok with it. I just left the scene. And I am not gonna pick up her calls for this whole week, maybe whole month.
