Excuses people make instead of just saying you aren’t important enough for them to talk to.
I have to scrub my feet and toes.
I am about to watch this show on Netflix, so…
I’m about to heat up this Lean Cuisine meal.
Oh someone is on the other line I’ll call you back later (but they don’t).
I’m at work, got to get back. (Then they go and drink watered down office coffee and do nothing.)
Something hurts. Neck back ankle etc. Gotta go!
XYZ is happening right now and I have to go. So.
When people make up these types of excuses to get off the phone with you, it’s because they truly just do not want to talk to or help you. Know this and adjust your expectations.
One day, bet, they will probably come looking for you for help because right now they think they won’t ever need it.
Maya Angelou said when people show you who they are you have to believe them the first time. Do your best now to find other friends and people who you can really rely on.
