This week, we have Alice* who was ghosted by her guy after he went out of his way to confirm their plans for that night. I couldn't make this up if I tried...
Take it from Alice, herself, here:
You guys... I DON'T GET IT.
I mean, I usually don't really understand ghosting in general, but this goes beyond just ghosting. It's just being RUDE. If you make a plan with someone, the rules are pretty simple: You're supposed to show up.
If you can't make it for one reason or another, fine. Life happens. The world keeps turning. But you should let the other person know you can't make it, so you don't just waste their time completely.
It's simple! It's COMMON DECENCY.
Do you get where he was coming from? If you do, FILL ME IN. Or maybe you've had a similar experience, in which case, send it my way!
As always, if you have your own submission for “Boom, Ghosted,” please feel free to send it over to me at email@example.com.
