10 Times It’s Okay to Flake [The Weekly 10]
“Heeeey! So, I don’t think I’m going to be able to make it tonight, but have fun without me! <3″
I should probably have that text programmed into my phone because I send it A LOT. I bet a lot of you do too because it’s SO easy to flake on plans nowadays. Too tired to go to brunch? Flake. Marathon of Real Housewives is on? Flake. Is that okay? To just leave friends hanging for no GOOD reason? I don’t think so (even though I’m guilty). It’s easy to not want to meet someone to “catch-up” when you can just text to see how they are doing or see updates on their life via Twitter or Facebook.
While I’ve been trying harder to keep plans with people (it’s part of my “act more like an adult” plan), sometimes you’ve just gotta bail. You totally shouldn’t feel guilty about sending the flake text when these situations come up.
