Cancelling on people - hardest thing to do ever?
    #4276258 - 06/09/05 03:58 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I got up today, hopped on AIM, and BAM! Invite to a old movie screening thing at a park. It sounds fun yeah, but a.) it's a long drive b.) the weather has been shit for 2 weeks and today is no different and c.) I had a message on my phone around noon (was in bed..) reminding me of trivia tonight. I'd honestly rather eat dinner and play trivia with Tom than go to the film thing.

It's SO HARD FOR ME TO DO THIS! I just called about the film festival to attempt to bail but I got an answering machine (which I was thankful for).

Am I lame? Does anyone else DREAD cancelling on someone?

Why accept the invitation in the first place if you don't intend to go?

That's my #2 problem. The whole time she was inviting me I knew I really didn't want to go, and that if she hadn't invited me at all I would have been happier. But I let myself accept the invitation for some reason. =(
And NO there is no chance between us so don't bother mentioning it.
SIGH!

Aach, I'm bad at this..

Haha willy...

If you haven't gotten hold of her yet, just explain to her that you forgot you had a prior engagement or something to that effect...i'm sure she'll understand.

I hate when people cancel on me. Just say you can't do it if you can't do it.
