How do you feel when people change plans last minute?
To answer the question straight up, the first word that comes to mind is "betrayed". I feel insignificant, like, my time doesn't matter. But, then I check myself and realize that life happens. Sometimes, plans just simply need to be changed to accommodate what's happening in the other person's life at that moment.
For me it may depend on the situation, if the change of the plan is not useful or uncomfortable I feel angry or sad. If the change of the plan is useful and more comfortable than the previous plan I feel happy.
It depends on the reason why they changed plans and what are the consequences, but if it disrupts my life for no good reason whatsoever I find it quite a lack of respect and I generally feel quite angry.
If they had a valid reason, I would understand, although I would still be disappointed. If they just cancelled for no good reason, I would be upset and would probably want an explanation:)
Annoyed. I mean I know stuff happens so sometimes people can't help but change their plans at the last minute but when someone constantly does that it is very irritating.
If they have a really good reason and don't do it often, it doesn't bother me. However, I am a planner. I have my life planned out. If they do it all the time, it annoys me and I quit making plans with them, because I know I can't count on them.
Yes I feel the same as most of you some people are planners, like me, and some are always changing their mind or leaving things to the last minute. When someone says they are going to do something I expect that they mean it not just idle talk.

What sort of holiday do you go in for - do you book in advance or leave it to the last minute?When you go on holiday, what sort of hotel/resort do you go for? Do you go cruising on liners? Or do you follow inland waterways and stay in B&B's, eating in pubs?
