Do you ever feel like canceling plans with someone, but decide against it because you fear that flaking might upset that person? I know I do, but according to Twitter users, canceling plans is perfectly OK!
A new meme justifies your right to cancel plans by recalling all the absolutely ridiculous stuff that people do in movies. For example, if going away to summer camp, eating Oreos with peanut butter, switching places with your identical twin, reuniting your divorced parents, and pushing your sleeping stepmother’s air mattress into a lake is OK, as it was in The Parent Trap, then canceling plans simply must be OK. It’s a simple yet powerful logic. At the end of the day, you do what you need to do to cope.

It’s not the most solid justification, considering the majority of these characters are fictional, but you know what? The meme makes us laugh and feel slightly less guilty about canceling plans, so it works. The only real downfall is that if you haven’t seen one of the movies that’s been meme’d you’ve basically just read a bunch of spoilers. 😬
Even so, it’s 2020 and canceling plans is definitely OK. We even have some guidelines on how to cancel plans without being a jerk. You’re welcome!
