I am not sure if it is right to feel disappointed and sad and a little pissed off when you asked someone for help and they commit to it...but then you've been waiting to hear from them regarding the matter and it's been a while but no respond? How do you react on that? they can say No to begin with, it is not a compulsory matter but they did agreed to it and never heard after. What is wrong with them, are they insensitive that someone is actually holding to what they have said? :-(

they could have said no but then at least you would have known where you stood and maybe asked some else to help you. instead the have left you with nothing. unfortunately, there are a lot of people who say one thing and then do another. there will always be people who let you down.

I have had that happen to me a few times and I can so understand your feelings. It is a combination of hurt, disappointment and anger all at the same time. I agree with you that if they did not want to do it to start with they should have told you so from the get go.

I would feel disappointed and sad too if someone didn't call back or do what they promised to help with. If they said that they will help out then they should do it as it is a promise and someone is waiting for their call. It is not good to keep others waiting, if you can't help out for whatever reason they should atleast give a call and let you know that they can't help out so that you don't wait for them and find some other means to get your work done. It is very insensitive on their part...

They were actually very inconsiderate to have kept you waiting. If they really couldn't, the least they could do is inform you immediately so you could find someone else who could probably help you. I guess these aren't your real friends since friends don't do these things. They don't keep someone hanging.

yes its normal to feel sad and dissaponted for holding to what they've said. It's like a broken promise for help.Some people doesn't want to play hero now a days.If I were you, I'll give them a call and remind them regarding that commitment matter and explain what the "golden rule" means, for all we know he/she would remember it and will act sensitively next time he/she makes a commitment.
