No, you're a flake because you made plans you didn't follow through on.
If you are that busy with your shit that you can't find any time to play with friends online then don't make plans to do so to begin with, chum. That's basic responsible behavior.
I hate when people use their job or education as an excuse to flake out on shit because you fucking know what times you have work and school. Your English teacher doesn't call you at 7 in the afternoon and tell you to come on over for some surprise Macbeth.
>called and forced to work at random hours instead of a fair, set timetable
Holy shit you are a retard, how the hell is set work hours worse than literally being called upon like a puppy whenever your boss feels like it.
