Um problema moral?

por Carla Hilário Quevedo, em 23.10.08

"Breaking a Date: As with all social invitations, once you’ve agreed to go on a date, it is unacceptable to break it except for illness, medical emergency, a death in the family, or an unexpected and unavoidable business or family conflict. If your job is on the line unless you agree to work overtime, you have a legitimate excuse. An academic conflict, like a research paper, might pass muster if it came up at the last minute. For single parents, any emergency involving their children must take precedence. But changing one’s mind or getting a "better" offer is no excuse. If you must break a date, quickly get in touch with the person and explain the problem. A personal call is best, but you might have to leave a message or use e-mail if your date is difficult to reach. If the person offers to help (say, driving you to the hospital to see a sick relative), you can agree if it’s comfortable for you. Otherwise, tell the person that you’ll get back to him. You might reschedule the date, but when that’s not possible — as when you’re dealing with illness or a family emergency — you should call or e-mail the person at some point and alleviate any worries he or she may have. It is inexcusable to stand anyone up. Should you be genuinely unable to notify the person (as might happen in a serious family situation), get in touch just as soon as you can, explain, apologize, and do what you can to make amends." Emily Post, Etiquette, p. 87.
