The Etiquette of Bailing

Illustration for article titled The Etiquette of Bailing

Can anyone tell me how to have a useful conversation about flaking? This has been a lifelong peeve of mine. Today I waited half the day for an old friend to drive into town. I wasn't at all surprised that she flaked, nor that she didn't text or call until it was too late, but I am angry. Yes, angry. Mostly because people are so fucking consistent in their inconsistency. In the past I think I've just scared people away or made them less likely to make plans with me simply by voicing my concerns.

Does anyone have advice for how I can safely and constructively let people know that I don't like being stood up?
