Last weekend, a friend was going to run a small game (think Dungeons and Dragons though that's not it exactly) on Saturday. It would be 5 people other than him. My boyfriend and I offered to have it at our house due to logistics. He sent a message out Thursday cancelling it, citing not feeling very well. The next day, he un-cancelled it, saying he felt better. I felt rather aggravated by this--he didn't check to see that we hadn't made other plans in that day, especially since it was at our place. As it happened, we hadn't made other plans, and I was still happy to have the game happen (it did, and was fun!) But, I felt like if we *had* made other plans, it would've been awkward to say 'actually...no, sorry, guys!'
So, what do you guys think? Is there a window where cancelling an event can still be 'uncancelled' if the host's situation changes, and if so, how long is it? Does it change because it was at our house (Friend was providing everything necessary, we were just providing the venue, so I wouldn't consider us hosts in any way)?
