Mom I won't forget, stop worrying. I have to go before I miss my bus!
Hey Jack, you have your college interview Sunday evening- don't forget!
Jack, this Sunday, I bought tickets for all of us to the Redskins game for my birthday- you have to come.
Well I don't think-Um never mind of course I'll come for your birthday.
If I don't go to the game, I might risk my friendship and trustworthiness as I said I would come. On the other hand if I miss the interview I might compromise my chance of getting to the school I want . I need to seek advice for this decision.
What have I gotten myself into-why did I say yes to Derrick? Now I have to make a hard decision
Well, you shouldn't have said you were going to the game when you knew about the interview. Also, the interview is much more crucial to your future, and I'm sure Derrick will understand that.
... , so what do I do mom?
So I guess I have to tell Derrick I can't make it tomorrow, I hope he doesn't get mad.
Hey Derrick, I can't make it to the game on Sunday because I have an important college interview I'm sorry.
Sorry about that... but thanks for understanding.
It's fine, I understand that you have priorities, just next time just tell me you can't come in the first place.
