I think I may have inadvertantly pissed a friend off.
Now, this is someone that I have known for many years, but don’t really talk to that much anymore, simply because we are both such busy people.
Yesterday, I ran into this friend on the street. I said “hey!” and smiled, but I was on the phone and did not stop and chat.
Now I think that this friend may be a bit ticked, because I sent her a text later explaining why I didn’t stop to chat, and she sort of responded in a way that made me think that she thought I was really rude (she thought that I didn’t know who she was-not true at all!).
Now to me, it would have been more rude if I had started carrying on a conversation with her, because I was on the phone with someone else. (My Mom) I had called my mom and was trying to explain something that had happened earlier in the day. It wasn’t a major conversation or anything, just chatting, but I feel like my first priority was with the person that I had called.
Long story short, I am not sure if I have anything to feel slightly guilty about or not.
What do you think?
