Empty Promises

I think we all hate empty promises.  They come from a variety of sources.  It can be from being in a relationship, from parents, co-workers, and even sales reps.  I know a former mechanic who told me a story about a horrible sales person.  Two women had purchased a car from a lot just down the street.  They told the sales rep that they were driving to Chicago, Illinois the following day.  He did tell them to get an oil change. Fortunately, good luck was with them as they went just down the street to  a shop with an honest mechanic.  As soon as he put it on the lift he knew they had been swindled.  He took it off the lift and told them the car wouldn’t even make it out of the state.  He told them to go right back and demand their money back and whatever car they used for a trade in. They believed him and once the junker was returned they stopped by with a cold drink for him to say thank you. Of course, in the dating possible marriage scene empty promises are a common occurance.  Either one of the parties may make all types of promises, guarantees, etc. and then at the last minute disappear with the gifts and any money they received. I guess the old saying that if it is too good to be true, that the person swears they are honest, the chances are it is all a lie. I hope anyone reading this has not had to deal empty promises.
