Phyllis was scheduled to come back from a business trip the day before our first date. The day she was to fly back, she called me to say that because of an airline issue, she wouldn't be back until the actual day of our date, itself.
I offered to postpone our date if the scheduling would be too hectic, and if she wanted to rest after her trip. She said that she would probably be fine, and that she'd keep me in the loop.
She called me the day of our date to let me know that she'd be flying in later that day. I asked her, "Do you still want to go out, tonight?"
She said she did, and I offered to pick her up at the airport. She told me that she had already made arrangements.
Later in the day, she called to ask me if I would, in fact, pick her up at the airport. I told her it wouldn't be a problem, and she gave me her flight information.
I arrived at the airport shortly before her plane was to arrive, and I waited inside the terminal for her. The plane landed on time and I waited... and waited... and waited. She didn't come through the arrival gate. I tried her phone, and it went right to voicemail. I gave it some more time, tried her again, and she still didn't pick up.
I wondered if perhaps she had been delayed again, or perhaps she was on a different flight. I didn't want to just leave the airport, if she had made that kind of mistake, but it was becoming pretty late. I checked the arrival board after a bit longer, and when I saw that no further planes were arriving that day from Los Angeles (where she was flying in from), I up and left.
The next day, I tried her again. She picked up and asked, "Hey, what's up?" with no explanation as to her whereabouts.
I asked her, "I went to the airport and waited for you, last night. Are you still in L.A.?"
She replied, "No, I'm back," again with no further discussion on it.
I prodded, "When did you come back? I went to the airport last night to pick you up!"
She replied, "I got back in the day before yesterday."
I was incredulous. I asked, "But you told me that you'd be on a plane from L.A. yesterday! We agreed that I'd meet you at the airport! We were supposed to have a date last night!"
After a pause, she said, "Whoops!" then hung up.
Back at you.
