I'm really sick of people being such flakes lately. I just don't get it. I have never been a flake. I don't know what goes on in their heads, but it stinks. The past couple of weeks have been flake fest '08. I am over it. I don't want to get too into the details and expose the flakes (maybe I should, though), but the worst example of flakiness was a friend who was in town. We made plans to get together and she never showed up (we were meeting at my house). After waiting for 40 minutes, I called her and left her a message. I never heard back from her. At first, I was really angry and upset. I quickly got over it, though. I really just don't comprehend how someone who is supposed to be one of my closest friends can just blow me off like that. It was her idea when we got together, too. And to not call me back. At all. In the Age of Technology there are so many ways to get a hold of someone when you really don't want to talk to them. My favorite is texting. The same week my friend flaked out on me, I had a woman flake out on me for a business meeting. Yes, a professional meeting. I waited for fifteen minutes before I called her and left a message. Guess what? She never called back. That one I think was worse. It's business related. That my friends, is low. People really have no excuses, except for their own general lameness. Oh, and a lack of manners or common courtesy. OK. Done venting. No more.
