Re: Chronicles of the Good Guy
Did I get stood up?
Everything was going as planned this weekend. Shooting guns Friday night was a GREAT way to blow off some steam after a long week. And though it was a lot of hard work on Saturday, we got set up for the bonfire and it went off without a hitch. Through the day on Saturday S (the girl) and I texted a few times, and everything seemed normal. On Sunday morning I packed up my tent and was headed back home to get cleaned up and over to her house. I even got a text from her "what time are you headed my way?" I called her back since I was driving and told her it would be about noon. Then she says "I need to push it to later today since I have a thing to do at 2 oclock with roommate. What time do you have to pick up D7?" I told her between 7-8PM. So she says OK, I'll call you when we're done. I figured she'd probably call at 3 or 4 oclock for me to come over. So 3 rolls around, then 4. I had already gotten unpacked and cleaned up, and didn't want to do any yard work or anything to have to get cleaned up again, so I did relaxed and bit and did laundry while I watched TV. Then 5 came and went. then 6 came and went.
At 6:30 I texted her to say "everything going OK?"
S - "yes, just now headed home, sorry this took longer than I thought."
GG - "I only have an hour until I needed to leave to go get D7. Do you want me to come over for a bit until then?
S - "No its OK"
GG - "K, another time then"
S - "Yes, sorry"
I was a bit miffed that I had waited around all afternoon. I probably shouldn't have let that get in the way of getting things done around my house, but I was excited to see her and since we were on a shortened timeframe anyway, I wanted to just be ready to walk out the door when she called. I'm not sure what her thing at 2PM was, but wouldn't it have been courteous after the first couple hours had rolled by to call and let me know we might need to reschedule? I don't know why but I feel like I got stood up. Maybe I'm over thinking it.
