    We've all done it before. You've agreed to meet a friend but you don't feel like going anymore, how did you break it to them?

    Tell us the worst lies/excuses you've told to cancel plans with someone

    I once told my friend that I had to go to a 10km run the next morning and that if I went clubbing, I would be too hungover to run... :facepalm2:

    I have anxiety so I just say that I'm not up to going (even if I'm perfectly fine) because then it's a recyclable excuse with no questions asked

    I rarely go out but the excuse i used was that i was too attracted to one of the people i was going out with so i wouldnt be able to control myself... needless to say i was stuck in a tricky situation for a long time.

    I once had a girl simply not say she wasn't coming - she just thought it was cool to just not show up, as if it was an option to keep me waiting for like...45 minutes...sweet one. "where were you? I waited ages", "oh I went out with my mom to go shopping - sorry" - true story actually...

    you say WORST but you dont say whether that's the most obvious lie or darkest reason so here's mine:
    yesterday to avoid doing something online with a friend my train journey home was delayed by in total 3 hours because someone commited suicide and was hit by a train. true, and dark, also the hardest to believe, had to send a photo of the display saying "delayed due to person hit by train" for him to believe me

    Is that why you've become so good at it?

    Usually I say that I can't go out because I need to study, and then I end up doing no studying whatsoever.

    Oh god, I always wonder if somebody can spot someone that is planning on jumping in front of a train. Like are there any obvious signs e.g jittery/ shaking.

    I feel like I would do anything to try and stop them if I could.

    My cousin cancelled coming over at mine because her internet wasn't working.
    A couple of weeks later, her mother cancelled coming over because she was waiting for a delivery from Asda.
