If someone says they're going to call you on monday

to schedule some plans, but you don't here from them on monday, what do you do?

call them tuesday? wait for them to call at some point in life? send them an email? leave a myspace comment?

Hmmm.. Well I'm a little passive/aggressive.. so I'd send them a text asking if they were still alive or something like that.

Okay.. then bite the bullet.. call and ask if you are going to make plans or not.

Or just figure they won't call and cut your losses.

Really depends on how much I (think) I like them. Usually I'll just passively wait for them to call and move on with my life. Then when/if they do call months later I tell them they've lost their shot. Sorry.

If I don't call someone on a monday after saying I will it's most likely because I don't know what day of the week it is.

Unless some legit emergancy is taking place...no excuse for it. The person was rude and inconsiderate to your time and should be called on it...I mean really, how long does a phone or text take?

I am with you on that it is rude to not call if you do not intend to call leave it open like say "I'll call you later" and do not say a day later could be 10 yrs from now....I also feel that if someone is texting you, you should respond even if it is "i'm busy ttyl" or "thanks, okay, wow, nice" people are reaching out to you and making a sorta human contact it is rude to ignore that person it is un-human. People are very busy these days but we should all stop to be nice and give a quick text back.

So if someone said they will call you on Monday and it is now Wednesday I would send a text "hey how are you" on Thursday they may have just lost your number cell phone fritzed out so it does not hurt to contact Shit happens...but only give them that one chance if it happens again then cut your losses...you have been served!!

there ya have it. If they don't call, wouldn't let it ruin my tuesday for damn sure. If they called and said they got busy, it's not a signed contract for god sake. And define "make plans"
If I asked someone, hey ya want to ride over to so and so's house and they said I'll check my schedule and let ya know", well that's just some people shooting the shit and making tentative plans. If I just fucked the hell out of ya and you said I'll call ya Monday, I'd probably still not let it ruin my Tuesday

plans in this case would have been lunch.

back story:
was supposed to do lunch last week, but they called and said they had a something come up and asked if we could resched. sure. no biggy. i call/text on saturday to get an idea of when they want to resched, and they say they'll call on monday


i did call said person yesterday evening (tuesday). went to vm, and they actually called me back. didn't apologize for not calling on monday...but having anyone call me back is a plus usually.

plans are now dinner later this week...
