So messed up. I drove an hour and a half to see an old friend and then after I called she told me she would txt me directions. Yea I never got directions…. I feel for you.

hmmm, I don’t have friends who do this (probably because I’d have a fit if they’d do this… so they got weeded out early).

If this happened with one of my friends, I’d be seriously concerned about whether they are ok, especially if they are more than an hour late for meeting and can’t be reached.

Being stood up does really suck and it’s happened to me too. If your friend stood you up because of her lack of consideration, thats messed up. Since you haven’t heard from her maybe something happened. Accident? Sickness?

Hopefully she’s ok.

Uggh I’m sorry 🙁 I’d expect my friend to at least call or text to cancel unless it was a HUGE emergency (like, in the hospital or something, and then I’d understand!).

Yeah ive had that happen, it sucks!! i dont mind if its a good reason – for example, i made plans with a friend to go out for new years eve and i got a call a few hours before saying there was a family emergency – totally understandable. I wouldn’t like not being told or told 5 mins before

my friends know that it takes me an hour to get to the centre of town, so i really need minimum an hours notice to cancel delay. Ive had a text 5 mins before i was meeting someone telling me that they were running an hour late – er great, thanks hahaha

I feel you. A few years ago, that happened a lot to me and it really hurt my feelings. I would keep making plans with friends (nothing specific like a party but tentive let’s hang out on Saturday night kind of plans) and the day of, I would call, text and get no response. It made me cry sometimes. For some reason, it seems like people believe that in adult friendships, it’s OK to be inconsiderate because people are “busy” and have “important” things going on. I still think it’s sucky behavior but unfortunately it seems to be the norm.
