Friend asked to come over to mine an hour ago and to get a takeaway.

Since then I've heard nothing. Called and goes straight to voicemail.

I'm starving and want to cook some dinner

I would be worried about her. Can you go round to her house?

Beforethelastpetalfalls Fri 21-Apr-17 19:15:55

Aibu if I just start cooking some dinner just for myself now?

ZaraW Fri 21-Apr-17 19:16:03

I would make dinner.

Cook something and if she comes when it's cooked put it in the fridge for tomorrow? Or if she comes after you've eaten it tell her to order something for herself you've already eaten!

That is rude but it's still pretty early?

Beforethelastpetalfalls Fri 21-Apr-17 19:17:43

She's moved back in with her dad so I only know the area and not street or number.

I'm not worried about her .. not in a cruel way but she's had form for doing shit like this to me before.

Beforethelastpetalfalls Fri 21-Apr-17 19:21:15

Fuck it, I've started cooking now.

Felt like a right muppet just sat there waiting for her.

Did she say WHEN? You don't mention that, which is odd when it makes all the difference.

Did she say she was leaving immediately? How far away is she from your house? Could she be waiting on a bus or stuck in traffic?

It's still pretty early, didn't she mean when the kids were in bed? I'd be expecting someone around 8...

Beforethelastpetalfalls Fri 21-Apr-17 19:46:36

why would she mean when the kids are in bed? She doesn't have children.

ChaiTeaTaiChi Fri 21-Apr-17 19:50:19

You didn't answer the question hmm

It's only ten to eight on a Friday evening, maybe she's on her way and doesn't realise you're hungry? Have a snack and give her half an hour?

Reow Fri 21-Apr-17 19:57:26

Did she definitely say 6pm?

Seems early for takeaway

Hope she's ok!

Screwinthetuna Fri 21-Apr-17 20:08:34

Don't you have kids though? If one of my friends were coming round for a takeaway, they would always come later when kids were in bed and with a bottle of wine, etc

Beforethelastpetalfalls Fri 21-Apr-17 21:56:42

No. Why does one of us have to have children? confused

Wando1986 Fri 21-Apr-17 21:58:18

Umm... the name is in the title of the website, OP.

Wando1986 Fri 21-Apr-17 21:58:38

*clue not name. Bloody phone.

Although there's a lot of non-parents on here it's still presumed as the name is MUMSnet.

Smiler2013 Fri 21-Apr-17 22:08:44

Which could mean mother to teens, people in their twenties etc.

bigchris Fri 21-Apr-17 22:10:32

Did she turn up op?

Umm... you're very rude aren't you? I didn't realise you had to have children to post on here. I thought everyone was welcome. Obviously not.

Starting to see why your friend might not be too bothered coming over confused
