Call it lame but I always use the little lie “I got busy” when it comes to not replying to a text or not returning a call. In fact I just said just yesterday “I’m sorry I didn’t return you call, I was busy trying to get caught up on stuff after being sick.” And it was half the truth I was busy, I just really forgot to call. Ha ha ha. That was the nice one, the mean was when I got asked to sub a class at the gym and I used the excuse that “I’m just coming off from being sick and don’t want to do too much too soon.” When in reality I wanted to attempt my training run, which I still didn’t do (I went to the grocery store instead). But the BAD part was if I would have thought about my schedule I could have told them I was unavailable, because I wasn’t, because I had a doctor’s appointment at the same time. So I felt kinda like a jerk that I lied and even more so that I forgot I had a doctor’s appointment and that’s a much better reason than what I gave. Yeah I’m a bone head.
