I'm sorry, I already have plans

I’m sorry, I already have plans

When did saying “I already have plans,” become a “bad” thing? Why are so many people responding “maybe” or not responding at all to an invitation when they actually mean no?

Does the following scenario seem familiar?

“Let’s hang out? Are you free Friday?”
“Sounds fun! I’m not sure if I’m free, but let me get back to you.”

“Did you find out if you’re free Friday?”

Between all of us, we found moving the furniture was surprisingly easy; the couches were quite light and actually fit through all the doorways without too much maneuvering.

Fortunately, we had taken the time to organize and neatly stack our boxes, which made loading and unloading much more efficient. Also, thanks to my roommate’s handy color-coded labeling system the boxes were even unloaded into the correct rooms, which has made unpacking significantly easier. The moving process itself was over by 3PM!

WAIT! That’s not what happened AT ALL.
