3. What, to you, constitutes as setting a plan with someone? Does it come with any rules? Do you always reserve the right to cancel without calling/texting?

 

4. When you don't answer my phone calls, especially when we have plans, why do you get mad at me for texting? (Consider: I wouldn't text if you answered the phone.)

 

5. At what point did you decide that you weren't coming over? Did you think that you should call or text to notify me of your cancellation at that time? Why or why not? Be specific.

 

6. By doing these things, are you trying to "get back at me" for something in a passive-aggressive way? If so, what are you trying to get back at me for? Is it the mere fact that I have expectations of you?
