Cancel Or Always Late
This a big pet peeve of mine!! Canceling at the last minute. Geez....Did the person at the last minute find something better to do?? Aren't you important enough?? ARGGGGG
What's even worse....They are always late for any and everything. If you say: Dinner at 7PM....You had better be there at or before 7PM. Where Ms. Manners anyway??
My husband's daughter will often make plans with us to visit us and arrive at a certain time. She is often late...Not by minutes, but by hours.
The last time she was late by 1 1/2 hours. My husband called her and canceled her visit. He told her that if she couldn't be here around the specified time...We needed to reschedule her visit.
Another time, we had plans on meeting her at a restaurant for dinner at a specific time. Reservations had been made. We waited for over a 1/2 hour and called her cell. She never responded. We went ahead and ordered our food, ate and was paying the bill, when she arrived.
Hubby told her that she was late and we had already eaten. She was ticked at us, as we walked out of the restaurant, leaving her standing there.
I guess the saying, "better late, than never" doesn't apply to having and using good manners.
