Why is Nick annoyed that Gatsby has asked Jordan to discuss a private matter with Nick at their meeting later in the day?
Nick doesn’t want to see Jordan, and he knows that she often lies.
Nick has other plans in the afternoon and is worried that he will have to rearrange his plans to accommodate Gatsby and Jordan.
Nick is certain that the matter to be discussed is something ridiculous, and he resents that Gatsby has imposed upon his date with Jordan.
Nick wants to distance himself from Gatsby, and the suggestion that he now has to become involved in some “matter” that also involves Jordan is frustrating.
Nick is sorry he ever met Gatsby or attended one of his parties. He feels like his life is being overtaken by Gatsby’s requests.
