Friend Cancels Plans…Again.

Dear Robin:

Recently once again I found myself without dinner plans because my friend Tiffany cancelled at the last minute. As usual I made the invite, it took a while to settle on a date, and she canceled because she said her son was sick.

Imagine my surprise when I saw a photo of her on Instagram at a dinner party that same night.

I am always there when she needs me. For example, I’m a nurse and she has come to me several times for health advice for her and her family. I also was a constant shoulder to cry on during her latest divorce.

I am pissed off and hurt. Our mutual friend says this is just how she is and to let it go but I want to confront her. 

How about one of your scripts?
