Tmrw rolls around and they shoot a text. Ignore.
As a smoker dtown this is a big problem of mine. Old HS or college acquaintance wanders past once a week ("wow- you became a yuppie too?!" *just 'cause you're older doesn't mean you have to pretend you give a f*ck lol)
For awhile now though on these run-ins I've simply stopped giving into the urge to say "hey let's do lunch or grab a drink!" knowing that weeks from now I'd rather go straight home and eat pizza with no shirt on then sit somewhere for an hr w someone you weren't reeeeally friends with in 1999 anyway.
If the other dude throws it out say 'sure!'. They likely and hopefully won't follow through so on run-in #2 (bound to occur in the next 2 months to 2 years) you're sittin pretty while they're the slightly 'rude' one.
