Dont' you hate it when someone says they'll call, then don't?

    Bugs the stuffins outta me. You hear ,"Okay...I'll call you tomorrow."  Tomorrow comes, no call.  You think, duh? So what's the deal?  Then there's the ever-ending "I'll contact you as soon as I can get away...." Then NO CONTACTO. Especially when somebody does it repeatedly. One tends to get tired of the let-downs and endless empty promises. 

    I'm going to make an effort NOT to do this from now on. I know I've been guilty of it in the past, but no more!  And for those who CONTINUALLY build up, then let down: Hasta la vista baby. You get the RED EX!

      yeah, i hate it when that happens too, as i had that  happen to me many times.  plus, don't you hate it when you ask for a person's phone number, and they give you like a bogus number to like Pizza hut or something.  that's happened to me a lot also.  personally, if a girl isn't interested in me, i'd rather she'd tell me directly or just say f**k off!  as that would be much more honest, than the simple b.s. game.  however, that's just me.

        I can say that never happened to me when I was single, but I know of some who it did happen to. That's humiliating. If they don't wanna call ya back, then say so, for crying out loud! Empty half-promises have no bearing.

      When someone states that he or she is going to call you, tell the person you will call if he or she does not.

      Likewise, you do not have to sit around wondering why you have not been contacted. You can call instead.

    Really....I know I've been guilty of it. But I just don't like how it feels. I'm gonna try harder not to be guilty of the very thing I find annoying. It can be a friend, a spouse, a lover, a coworker, an associate, or ANYONE.

    I have a friend who has continually done this the past few months. Really enjoy talking, etc. Great company. Always says, "I'll get with you later today...." or "I'll contact you as soon as I'm outta here..."  Then 2 or 3 days go by, or more, and nothing. I quit calling back and asking what happened. After of few times of attempting to contact, I kept getting the great explanation each time. Always sounds good and I'll think, "Oh...it's cool. That's all it was..."  Then it goes right back to the same behavior all over again.   So I'm just not making anymore direct contact, and haven't been for a while. When I hear from her again, I'll just not make an effort to continue. I'm just tired of the let down disappointment. I don't think a true friend would continue, unless it's just a pattern with em.
