Have you cancelled plans this week? Or been cancelled on? It’s an epidemic.
This week on the Mamamia Out Loud podcast, Mia Freedman, Susan Carland and Monique Bowley question why we’re so crap at committing to things.
Turns out, there’s a psychological reason for it. And a way you can cancel delicately without seeming like a jerk.
Also on the podcast this week:
1. Chris Bath gets paid WHAT?
We found out the Channel 7 newsreader Chris Bath was paid up to $800,000 a year to read the afternoon news. But part of it, as Mia Freedman explains, is “danger money”.
2. Generation Cancel:
Have you cancelled something recently? Or been cancelled on?
It’s an epidemic. People that commit to things and then flake at the last minute. For Susan Carland, the feeling is sweet relief; one less thing to do, a chance to reclaim some time in the day. But for others, it’s a source of guilt and anxiety. This week on the podcast, is there a way to cancel without being a jerk?
