唔好放飛機 Don't Stand Me Up!
Story and comic created by CCFamily.
“Stand someone up” means you have made an appointment with someone but you do not appear without telling that person you are not coming. And “being stood up” means you have shown up for an appointment with someone, but that person does not appear and you are left alone. It is impolite to stand someone up. Don’t forget to tell the person if you cannot make it for an appointment.
- He is sad because he got stood up by the girl he likes.
- I don’t think he would come. He always stands us up.
- Please tell me if you cannot find the time to come. Don’t stand me up!
