Snark Bite #5: Flakes Are Only Good as Candy Bars

If you make plans with someone only to back out at the last minute for some generic, vague reason that may or may not be true with no consideration for the value of the other person's time, you may be a flake.

If you don't show up for meetings that were arranged only hours before and fail to contact the party you were supposed to meet to notify them and apologize, you may be a flake.

If you expect others to take the initiative and seek out your company or make plans with you, and never make the effort to reciprocate, you may be a flake.

If your conversations consist of a great deal of talking and very little listening, you may be a flake.

If that "talking" consists of a great deal of talking about yourself rather than showing any genuine interest or concern for the other party, you may be a flake.

If your "listening" really just consists of quiet contemplative moments during which you are mentally preparing the next thing you are planning to say, about yourself, you may be a flake.

If you fail to maintain equality in "friendships" by disappearing when your other obviously more important relationships are either going badly, going well, or going any way that encourages you to become so distracted by your own "issues" that you don't give a flying fuck about anyone else's, you may be a flake.

If you meet all of these criteria, you are definitely a flake, and Flakes are only good as candy bars. Grow up and start treating other people the way you like to be treated.
