Okay the other day I was waiting for my sister to come over right she said that she waited to go out, and she would meet me at my house, so I got ready and waited for her for like a hour and she never called nor did she say that she wasn't coming, So I finally call her and ask her what's the problem I been waiting for like a decade being smart with her, and she like oh my goodness I completely forgot, what you forgot you the one that called me! have you ever went through this before, waiting for someone because they ask you to and then they turn around and do something totally different or just totally forget?

Yes such things has happen with me not once but more then two three time. My sister use to phone me and tell me that she will come at my place to go to market and will reach my place at suppose around 4 P.M. but she use to reach at 6 P.M. you know it is so much boring to sit after getting ready.

My family and I all have cell phones, so we would be calling or texting each other after being 5 minutes late. It is strange that she called you if she could come over and then, forgot to come over. Did she get distracted by her boyfriend? Or started watching TV and then got caught up in watching a TV program. Sounds like she just wanted to come over for something to do and then, got distracted with something else. Next time, just call her within 15 minutes. As now you know she could easily get distracted. And forgetful.

I have the experience to wait for someone in the railway station, with one of my close friends. We were waiting for another girl from another city, we waited for 6 hours, obviously the train didn't come on time, but we didn't complain about it, because we knew that our friend was on the train, and we really missed her. Although it is hard, we enjoyed the process. So, i always believe that if you promise something, you need to achieve that, or you should explain in advance.

I feel like I have spent my whole life waiting on someone. I was alwayting formy late husband. He certainly took his time about things. I always had to wonder f we would ever arrive somewhere on time. It got to be a family joke after a while.

it is so hard to be the one who waits than to be the one who is waiting for., the feeling that you are like waiting for eternity is really disappointing especially when the one whom you are waiting for tells you that s/he forgot. how could s/he forgot when you made an appointment ahead of time?it makes you feel less important or unimportant, so to speak.

I have waited for someone before but he did not come. Actually, he came but he was far too late and I already left. The problem was during those time, I do not have a cellular phone. He was caught on very heavy traffic because he forgot that there would be a huge celebration in the city that day. He called my brother but there's no way that he could relay me the message. Some people tend to multitask and would totally forget something they have scheduled ahead. To avoid this, they should always bring with them a planner or a calendar to check on them so that they would avoid something like what has happened to you. It is a bad thing on your sister's part that she totally forgot about it when in fact, she was the one who scheduled it. Normally, when I was the one who set up an appointment, I would call the person the day before the meeting to remind him about it. There are also times that if I haven't heard from this person after the set meeting, I would be the one to call him to check if there are no changes with the schedule.

Have experienced that a couple of times with my sister in law. She is my usual companion when I'm going to the mall. But she is the one who often asks me to come along with her. So, just like your story, she asked me to join her at 10am, before I fetch my son. I said, yes. As early as 930am, I was already dressed up and was waiting for her to come down. I was Mylotting at that time. When I looked at the time, it was almost 11am. So I quickly went down and shouted outside her window and asked her if we were still leaving. Guess what? She just woke up! Apparently, she wasn't able to sleep all night reading her pocketbooks and playing online games. And she doze off at 7am when all her kids were off to school.

I've been through that too with a friend I haven't seen for a long time. She was like, "oh my goodness how about lets have brunch? How bout tomorrow?" and then assuming that we would meet I got ready and all that but when I asked her where she was, well she wasn't answering her phone. Oh my goodness, I was thinking she forgot about it or something but I it came accross my mind that maybe she was just this fake person who wanted to seem like they cared when they invited me for brunch but flaked on me instead but that's a completely different story. Either way, it really pissed me off. :/

Oh yeah. One time too many. After that they'd be like " I'm taking you out. Be ready at so and so time" I'm like "UH huh whatevs!" Don't know why people make plans if they know they won't follow through.
