Dude, where's Clarence?

He called me after I bought his ticket for the movie to tell me he couldn't come. He mentioned something about needing to fold some laundry.

That's total flakiness!

A person who is very unreliable. They commit to do things but rarely follow through. They will seem sincere when they make a promise. And perhaps they honestly believe they can deliver. But don't be fooled, trusting a flake will only cause you frustration and heartache when they frequently let you down.

An unreliable person. A procrastinator. A careless or lazy person. Dishonest and doesn't keep to their word. They'll tell you they're going to do one thing, and never do it. They'll tell you that they'll meet you somewhere, and show up an hour late or don't show up at all. Also spelled "flakey", or "flake" in the noun form.
