Bloody Irritated!

GRRRRR! It really REALLY pisses me off when a group of people make a plan and then when every one is supposd to meet they all say for one excuse or another they can't make it.

As I mention in another blog tonight after work, a group of us were going to get together and go have some drinks. I was looking forward to this, unwind, kick back, laugh....relax.

At work today it was the only thing everyone was talking about. Even at 5 this evening as everyone was taking off, everyone was saying "see you there" and joking about who was going to by who a drink. At the designated time, I called the two people I was supposed to call and they both backed at for various excuses, so I proceeded to call the rest of the people who wanted to go, and they all had excuses too. Only one other person was ready like I was, but we decided to stay home too....

I am just irked, because when I tell someone I am going to do something, or be somewhere....I AM!!! Usually I move heaven and hell to make sure I keep my word....but apparently that is not the popular trend any longer.... This just makes me grouchy, if you have no intention of going, just say no from the beginning!

So sorry Barb, it does suck when people blow you off like that! I don't often do a lot of 'going out' with friends...but I'm like you, when I say I'm gonna be there, I am! And I'm on time, too!! Those are not qualities that a lot of folks seem to value any longer.

I hope your Saturday is better than your Friday!!

I'm like you. I would move heaven and earth to be there when I told someone I would. Those people are losers!

As it should be. I'm sorry everyone bailed on you. I wonder why they call it common decency when it isn't common at all (I guess the same could be said for common sense).
