Trying to convince people that the highway works in both directions is tough. Not only can I use it to travel to see my friends and relatives but (wonder of wonders!) they could actually use it to drive 2 1/2 hours to see me. But it almost never happens.

This happens just about every time I move, or visit my relatives. Everyone wants to come visit me and hang out, but it never happens, and it's just lip service. It really irritates me, because even though I have been around for ages, and am almost always available to hang out with, nobody wants to do it until the end.

Here we are TWO YEARS after this post. These "friends" of mine always say "We should meet up!" but nothing ever happens. Oh well. Thanks for all the replies.

That's just making polite conversation - like asking how you are - They don't care!

It's one of our many social mores and just another reason we might want to consider doing away with them . You move far (we did) and most people disappear. Some true friends have remained but just a few.

It is sort of like being in the hospital....as soon as they hear you are in the hospital, some people who could care less about getting together with you any other time, flock there...I have never been in the hospital except to have my son 30 some years ago but I see this all the time...
