We’ve all been there. You made plans to get drinks with an old friend two weeks ago, and the night has finally arrived. But instead of feeling excited, you’re stressed about the 1,000 other things on your plate, and ooh, if you could just take off your shoes and get under the covers, you’d be soooo happy.

1. “I’m the worst.” You’re so not, so don’t say it.
2. “Can we reschedge?” If you actually want to, suggest a new date.
