I have set my mind on going to Larcian to eat tonight with 4 friends...I stopped myLotting, changed, and prepped up to get ready to go when my friend told me that my other friend is not going. She then said that she is feeling lazy and doesn't feel like going also, then again my other friend cancelled... I love them and I understand that they're just not up to going out tonight but I feel irritated because they were the ones who proposed that outing tonight last day...and I have mentioned that I'm a planner so it was already set in my mind, and I feel like I wasted time thinking about what I'd wear and the time I spent on prepping which I could have used to interact here in myLot...they should have called earlier!!! Am I wrong to feel this way? Have you experienced this too? Do you find it irritating also?

Oh man I have definitely been stood up without warning and had plans be cancelled on me. I love seeing my friends and actually getting out and doing things, so it's really disappointing when this happens to me. Not going to lie, though, I have done this back to my friends too - but I usually had a good reason for doing so (was called into work, sick, car won't start, etc - stuff like that). So yes! It's really irritating when you're set on having a good time and hanging out with your friends and they cancel on you. But you can't hold it against them, really, especially not when it's only a rare occurance, you know?

I'm not holding it against them, I'm just a tad annoyed with the fact that they brought that idea up then cancelled at the last moment with no strong grounds or reasons, I would be disappointed but not annoyed if their reasons were good. I also cancel at the last moment at times I get cramps or headaches and any other emergencies...though I know this will pass...and yes, this happens rarely^^

I would feel irritated as well! My friend has been talking to me about going into business together and was very keen to discuss the issue and look at possible business sites. I didn’t ask her to come on board with me, it was her idea and now, suddenly, I’ve heard nothing from her, I have no idea if she’s lost interest and whether I should go ahead on my own. I will call her about this but I shouldn’t have to because considering this was her idea she could get in touch with me in regards to what she wants to do! I don’t know why people say they are going to do things if they have no intention of following through! By the way I am a planner too and I like to know what is going happen if I can help it!

I would be irritated as well. I am a planner. My ex was a spir of the moment type and I would get so uptight sometimes when he would just make plans in a moment and give me no time to figure things out. Or I would be planning something and then he would go off on some other tangent. Hated that!
