Sample Answer of You Received an Invitation From a Friend to Go Out for a Day and Accepted
How are you? I am very thankful to you that you invited me to go out to spend some time in each other’s company; however, I was unable to make it and I am feeling extremely sorry for it.
Let me explain why I was not able to make it? I was ready to go, but suddenly the doorbell rang and I was amazed to see my maternal aunt. She came after a long time, so I totally forgot to go and got busy serving her breakfast. In the meantime, my mother made me remind you about our meeting and I immediately rushed to the bus station.
Moreover, I tried my best to catch the bus but I was a bit late and missed it. I did not stop trying to find another transport to reach at your place as due to the public holiday on that day, I did not get auto-rickshaws or other means of transport. Besides, my younger brother was also not at home; otherwise, he would assist me.
I know I can’t change things but I would like to make it on the coming Wednesday. I will be free on this day and we will go to a coffee shop that is near to your home and is a famous one. So, we would spend some time there and recounts our past memories.
I hope you will understand and forgive me. Hoping to see you soon.
