have a friend I want to meet up with ; every time I ask her to meet up we scheduled a meeting then she don't show up or cancel the meeting a day before the meeting. Last week she said we going to meet up on Thursday then she canceled the meeting . I know sometimes people get busy or things happen but she keep repeat it over and over again

. Is there an expression in the English language you could use to show your anger when some one cancel a meeting? Should I say Never mind or Just forget it Or should i use a different expression What is the best statement I should say to show my anger with out using profanity ?

I would ask, “Are you serious [about wanting to meet me]?  Or are you just putting me off?”

put off:

  • to hold back to a later time
  • to induce to wait <put the bill collector off>
  • to rid oneself of

“Are you giving me the runaround?”

deceptive or delaying action, especially in response to a request
