I'm just bugging you.

So I have meetings with this group of guys on a semi-regular basis. And last weekend one of the guys suggested for us to get together at 7 PM on Thursday night (yesterday). I e-mailed back on Monday saying I can't be there between the hours of 6 PM and 8 PM, but outside of that I am available. So all week long I wait and get no reply back until 5:30 PM Thursday night, and it suggests that we wait until this weekend or next week to hold our meeting. So I assume that there is no meeting that night. On my drive home from my prior engagement (roughly 7:30) I call some friends of ours and invite them over to watch, ironically, the television show "Friends" (due to the fact that they had invited over to their place last week, but we already had plans, so we wanted to make up for time not shared). So at 8:15 PM, during "Friends", I get a phone call that goes a little something like this:

Me: "Hello"
Anonymous: "Hey, are you coming to our meeting we're having right now?"
Me: "I didn't know that we were having the meeting. Where's it at and I'll be right there."
Anonymous: "We aren't having our meeting. I'm just bugging you. I called because I knew "Friends" was on and you said that you'd be available at 8 for our meeting and then you made plans to watch "Friends" with friends."

[The rest of the phone call has been omitted because either it has nothing to do with my point or because I forgot the rest.]

Ok, so the above phone call really bugged me. Reading the text it seems as if the person was just kidding with me, but the person was not just kidding. He was serious. And during the phone call I was just thinking, "How dare he try and make me feel bad for making plans for my free time". I don't know if my life moves a little faster than others around me, but if you don't solidify a meeting with at least a few hours to spare, you can't possibly expect people to not start making other plans. I felt as if he was excusing me of never actually even on planning to attend the meeting that I committed myself to.
