TQC, my friend and I have plans to go to see Rent tonight. It's in a town about three hours away from our hometown, so I was planning on taking a train to his work-town, which is only an hour away from the Rent-town. I sent him a text about it around 1 and have yet to hear back from him. I wouldn't really care except for that I have to leave work early to catch said train, and because he didn't get back to me, I didn't tell my boss what time I had to leave. My boss has since left (perhaps for the day) and I'd have to call him on his cell phone. This seems like a really unprofessional thing to do, even if I'm only missing an hour of work. I've got a serious bee in my bonnet about this. My friend still hasn't gotten up with me and I'm meant to be leaving in about fifteen minutes. If I don't go, I'm out $60. What would you do, and how mad would you be at your friend?
