Please Don’t Cancel…but if you must

I don’t like to be sick and, when I’m sick, I like to keep going unless it’s a desperate situation. Another thing that I don’t like are cancellations. Cancellations are one-sided changes to a situation where one side doesn’t know what the other side did to make the appointment. Yes, I know I can’t be greatly upset every time someone cancels an appointment as there are reasons, both on their side and my own. Recently, I had an appointment to eat dinner out at a Longhorn Steakhouse. We had made the decision to meet and eat over a week ago. The day before the agreed date, I began to feel puny–headache, achy body, absolutely no energy. I called my doctor who asked me to come in. The result was my being diagnosed as having some form of the flu. Coming home, I took two extra strength Tylenol before going to bed and waked feeling better. However, as the day progressed, the fever came back and the discomfort returned. I e-mailed my friend asking for a rescheduled dinner out. I think he’ll understand.
