I've got several friends which are inconsistent, and it is a bit annoying. For example, there was a female friend of mine that said she wanted to be my friend's girlfriend, but she changed her decision 2 hours after her first decision, and changed it back several hours after the second one. So I was very confused explaining to my friend. Also, a friend of mine said that he wanted to pick me up in the airport (I've just got back from a journey out of town), so I waited for him. Several minutes after that he called me and he said he could not pick me up, so I decided to call a public bus and went home by my own. But 5 minutes after I took the bus he called me and told me he was on the way to airport. Again, I was so confused at that time. Do you think you've got a solution to solve that kind of problem?

With these people take each day and situation as it comes.Don't depend on them for they may change their mind.There are several moments when i was in need but let down by others inconsistency.I was advised very early by a knowledgeable person not to expect anything from others,if they do well and good else lets not waste our thoughts thinking about them.

It's rather mean I think, especially some of them are my close friends. But oh well, I think it suits me!

Yep! I have friends like yours. What I did was 1. Never take their decisions seriously. 2. Never depend on them. 3. Never ask help from them. 4. Never try to change them. I have helped them whenever I could, am keeping my end of the bargain called friendship and will never make fun of their lack of consistency. Remember steady going people can be very boring. People like these provide the moments that stay with you. Rue these moments or enjoy them!

In other words, I should be Mr. Not-so-serious if I have to deal with them. Sweet! Thanks for sharing!
