More than pissed off.
For weeks I've been planning a trip to Bobbejaanland, an amusement park here in the area, with a couple of co-workers. Ended being just me, Sonja, her niece Rita, Melinda (my other co-worker) and Melinda's boyfriend. All of whom claim to be excited and happy to go.
Even yesterday, Sonja was still asking about the bus and trying to arrange stuff.
So this morning, I get stuff ready, I prepare food to take with me, some sandwhiches, some fajitas, some candy, drinks... You know, the kind of stuff that's easy to take along, but leaves you the chance to get rid of the garbage so the bag's almost empty when you return home.
Then just as I'm standing outside, ready to leave, I get a call from Sonja with her suddenly coming up with a list of bullshit excuses for why we should delay things.
-supposedly because of the weather, (keep in mind, I was outside, and it was nice, warm, not even cloudy, and the weather reports said it would be dry all day)
-then suddenly her niece didn't really want to go. (even though Sonja had repeatedly said that the other woman was really looking forward to it)
-And then suddenly she wasn't feeling good, it just came up and bla bla bla...
If you want to fucking cancel a trip that's been planned for weeks, don't cancel right before we were supposed to leave. Don't fucking dare come up with stupid ass excuses, because no, I'm not going to happily agree to go another time.
And the fact that this isn't the first time she's pulled this crap doesn't help her case.
Made even worse that all of a sudden, Melinda's boyfriend's car has no plates and that he was thinking that another day might be better as well. (this was planned for weeks, you cannot make me believe that this was an issue you were not aware of beforehand *grumble*)
And yeah, I know things happen, but you know what...
This is the same kind of crap that happened all the time when I was a kid.
Our dad would get us excited, promise to take us places. And then the very day we were supposed to go, when me and my siblings would be happily waiting to leave, hell sometimes even while we were already on the road, he'd suddenly claim "he didn't feel ok", or "something happened" and suddenly everything was canceled.
I don't deal well with changes in plans for exactly this reason. Because it makes you scared to get excited about just about anything. And right now I just want to scream at Sonja over ruining yet another thing I was looking forward to. Because next time I plan something with her, I'll no longer believe her if she dares to claim she's sure about something.
And yes, I get that tickets are expensive, it's why I've been offering to book them online for weeks. Telling her that the price would be a third lower, if only she booked in advance, that if you planned stuff it would be cheaper. but not even once does she come by to let me help her in arranging it. (and no, I'm not going to pay for other people if they don't even bother coming over for it, so I can be sure they're actually going)
Just utterly furious right now.
