  • at least you know when they are going to bail.....i find out because they just dont show up! I would love to at least get a call or text saying hey im not going to make it!....I made enough chili for 10 people one day and they all decided that they were going to go to someone elses house because there were no kids there and they were going to drink....dicks.....

  • I have an even better one for you, anon. We had plans for about 25 people to come over, so my husband made steaks enough to feed an army. We ended up with less than 10 people showing up.

  • 1. They don't have the balls to just tell you upfront, "Sorry, I don't feel like doing that."
    2. They figure it's no big deal to say yes and then bail at the last second.
    3. They lack imagination to come up with a good excuse for why they can't do...whatever.

  • If someone keeps bailing on plans I just assume they dont want to see me for whatever reason, and stop extending the invite. I realize we all have our own challenges in life and I take no offense.

  • I know with us, life gets in the way sometimes. I have a special needs child and aging parents, life can be unpredictable. :o/ Coincidentally, it happens to us too. I try to be understanding and take it in stride. I also go ahead and try to have a good time without them.
