This summer a friend that I hadn’t talked to since the semester before contacted me again. At first I was a little weary because I had stopped speaking to her for certain reasons before but it was the summer and I was bored. Our conversations got longer and more friendly as time went on and when we finally got back to San Marcos she continuously asked to hang out. She’s pretty cool so I figured “why not?” but every time I was busy, she was free and every time she was free, I was busy. This past Saturday, I was completely free for the whole day so I asked to hang out a few days prior. She said she was available and that she was really excited to see me. Saturday rolls around and I checked in that we were still on. She responded that she couldn’t come but could hang out the next day. The next day rolls around and I hear nothing from her.
MORAL OF THE STORY: People who flake on plans are really annoying
Do not ever make plans and bail out . When the other person drops plans it is rude and discourteous for you to not go through with a promise. Flaking also shows how bad and unreliable of a person you are. If you truly value friendships then don’t make plans you know you’re not willing to keep. It is understandable if something were to come up but doing this for every plan you make isn’t cool. So no, Tony the Tiger, flakes are not great.
