    (btw if your reading this you know who you are)

    Me and this friend made plans on sunday for yesterday. I was waiting for an hour until I just had to just go eat because I hadnt had breakfast. I tried phoneing her house and mobile (6 times between them) but no answer this was between 1pm and 2.30pm, just so if she wasnt coming I could move on and just do the best I could with the day. No answer so after eating near the meeting place at 2.30 I just completly went. It was too late for me to go home because I work in the same area so had to stay in the city centre on my own for 4 hours before work.

    I phoned her at 7pm and asked her if she rembered what she said on sunday and then she remembered said sorry (quite abit). She asked me if I was mad and I wasnt sure so I just "if you were me would you be mad". I asked her what 2 of out other friends would do and shes said "theyd flip out". I brought up about the time I was 30 mins late due to snow and asked her what she said she looked like waiting and she said "like id been stood up".

    Sorry about the essay

    Should I be mad?
    how would stop this happening again?
    what would you say to her?

    She's only human, give her a break. She accidentally forgot.

    She said sorry, so I'd be a friend and forgive her. If she did it on a regular basis I'd be a bit more pissed though.

    It was a mistake! If you're her friend you will forgive her. I don't see what's difficult about this.

    Friends are sometimes annoying, but it was, by the sounds of it, a genuine mistake. She probably feels bad enough without you reminding her about it. I say accept her apology and leave it.

    I normally phone 2 days before to give her a quick reminder on 2 days before I was eating on the train so couldnt phone and 1 day before her house phone was just ringing on and on and went to the machine and on the day before I went out her house phone was just ringing on and on and went to the machine and her mobile was turned off

    I'd've been well annoyed by that.
    I wouldn't say anything though. If it happens again though then worry... Seems like she genuinely forgot...

    You were eating on a train for a whole day?

    I think most people have forgotten something they've arranged at least once in their life, don't take it so seriously.

    I understand you being pissed, but there's no point dwelling on it. She made a mistake, yes. But people do, and people forget - she's said sorry, if you keep mulling over it it's only going to damage your relationship. You've told her how you feel, and she's apologised. Let it go.

    I would be pissed off, but then again it sounds like your friend was actually sorry

    forgive and forget
