From what I gather, it's a fairly common occurrence. I have a really excellent way for anyone who is stood up to turn the tables, save face and really screw with the idiot who was rude enough to do this to them.
First of all you need to realize one thing. In the day of cell phones, unless someone is car jacked, kidnapped or dead, there is no excuse for them to stand you up. There are few things that feel worse then waiting to be picked up for a date and not have that person show up. There are also few things more rude to do to someone. The first rule is this: The exception to this is, of course, amnesia but in that case you don't want to date them anyway.
The next thing you need to realize is that if you are being stood up, they don't want to meet you. If they wanted to meet you, they would have shown up. Once you realize these things it's time to have some fun.
The next day you need to call them. Make sure not to block your number since you want them to know that it's you. Chances are that they won't answer so you will have the opportunity to leave them a message. If they do answer you can pretty much do the same thing. You need to apologize for standing THEM up. Tell them that you are really sorry for not being there and make up the most lame possible excuse. I recommend something like you were shopping a shoe sale at Nordstrom and lost track of the time or say you forgot that you had an appointment to take your dog to the groomer.
Something along those lines but it has to be really idiotic and trivial. In this way you make them feel like you have the upper hand and all of the lousy feelings you had about being stood up are transferred to them.
Now sometimes if you are really lucky this is where the fun begins. Since they now feel like it was you who dissed them, they might actually ask to reschedule. The fact that you dismissed them so easily makes you all the more desirable, especially to a moron like this.
If they ask for another chance you have to be more then willing to say YES. Apologize once more for not showing up and make a definite date to get together again. If possible, try to make a date where they have to wear something fancy or make special arrangements like finding a babysitter. This time, of course, you stand them up for real and make them feel really lousy once again. Now I know what many of you are going to say.
This is a game and the subject is serious. You want the person to know how bad they made you feel. Well, my friends, I am here to tell you that someone who is callous enough to stand you up really doesn't care about your feelings, nor do they care about you. I recommend trying this if you are ever so unfortunate. Just please remember to email me and let me know how it went. I would love to hear from you.
