Why do people tell you one thing and do another?

just annoyed that my friend told me last night that she wanted to go to the store with me first thing this morning, so she isn't answering her phone, i am thinking she went back to bed, I need to go and i am thinking of going alone but then i don't want to hear her whine she needs stuff and has no way there. grrr........

  • Because they are not responsible enough or considerate! I'd be going with out her. I'd much rather go early, get it done and be home....not your problem she's not ready. And when she asks say "Hey, I tried calling you and figured since you didn't answer I didn't think you needed to go".

  • Sometimes what sounds good and doable one day loses it's appeal the next. I'd leave without her.

  • Go without her. People know if I say I am coming at a certain time I show up. If they arent ready to go then I go on my own. It isnt my job to sit around and babysit them. One of my friends is doing the same to me right now as I type this lol. Were supposed to go to cheer tonight with our dd's and she isnt answering her phone to see about going in one car. I know later tonight she will say oh I forgot, or why didnt u come get me? And I know she will know the answer before asking LOL.

  • I'd just go. That probably sounds rude but I can't stand when people tell me one thing and change their mind or whatever and don't bother to let me know things have changed.

  • I have this happen to me all the time and now just do things by myself and not worry about waiting on when it is convenient for someone else.

  • if she was supposed t call and hasn't, and she isn't answering her phone, then I say go ahead. text her a message or something telling her that you're going and why.

    if she whines later, then let her whine.
