Dear Mrs. McVeigh,
I have a friend who I was supposed to go to lunch with the other day. She cancelled saying she had a doctor’s appointment. I then was out running errands at the time we were supposed to meet, and I caught her out shopping. I was so stunned that I just said hello to her, and did not confront her. She said hello too, and we have never discussed it. Should I confront it, or should I let it go?
Dear Snubbed Friend,
I would approach the situation with deep thought on what kind of friend this person has been to you, up until the “incident.” If she (he) is truly a kind and honest person, then ask her nicely, or in a joking way, what happened. You can say something like, “Were you blowing me off or what,” or “Is shopping now more fun than lunching with me?” It may have been a big misunderstanding, or lack of communication. If you have a doubt in your mind about her being a completely honest person, then you will have to obviously decide if you want to continue the friendship or not. You could just accept the way she is, and keep the friendship on a lighter level, and be more careful next time when making plans with her.
