I am becoming increasingly confused by people’s attitudes about my desire to actually make plans more than a couple of days out. They complain, “Ugh, you’re always busy” when they try to invite me to something the next day. So, what I am understanding from these comments is that these people would like me to keep my calendar wide open at all times, just in case they may possibly, suddenly want me to do something at the last minute. But by that logic, I would have to say no to them, too, because I have to keep my calendar open, right? I have no problem with receiving spur of the moment invites at all, but the resulting annoyance with me for not being available 24/7 to their whims is mind boggling.
In this same vein, I have to go do wedding crap this weekend. The Bride made the plan with some other people WHILE DRUNK, and then was annoyed with me when she realized she never actually told me about it. Annoyed with ME, because she failed to mention it to me or put it on our shared Google wedding calendar. Fine, whatever, we were able to shuffle plans so we could make it. However, when I asked her what time she thought we would be done she was a) completely bewildered as to why I would want to know and b) offended that we might be trying to rearrange our plans for later that day. WTF?
The strangest complaint I get from people is when they become agitated that I have concert tickets for shows a couple months in the future. How… how else am I supposed to go to a concert? Wait till the day of and HOPE it hasn’t sold out? Is that how other people do it?
I am just gonna sit here and scratch my head because I don’t understand any of this.
