This is a question Broken Promises

Thebigfella tugs our coat and says: Are you a LibDem minister, a cheating partner, or maybe you have an annoying friend you can't be bothered with? Tell us of promises you've broken, or if you've been on the receiving end.

I started quite young at breaking promises.
On my honour, I promise that I will do my best:

1.To do my duty to God and the Queen,(or God and my country;)
2.To help other people at all times;
3.To obey the Guide Law

What can I say, boys loved the uniform.

I once promised my other half
that I wouldn't think of other women, only her, when I yanked one out.

You can imagine how long that lasted. After a while I had to admit that it was like promising that I'd only read books and watch films about young men working shifts at Sainsbury's, writing essays, pissing about on the internet and occasionally doing light exercise.

A boyfriend once sneaked to my house on a freezing midnight and wrote I LOVE YOU 4 EVER in the frost on top of my car.
But in the morning the romantic words had melted away, like all that wicked man's promises.

No funnies, but you know what you can put your lips around
1.) I am still attending addiction recovery classes and following the program;
2.) I have not engaged in those addictive activities for several months;
3.) I really feel like I've got this under control;
4.) This time it's going to stick, I know it;
5) My outlook on life is so much better.

Not all gloom and doom, much progress has been made, but I think of the Robbie Williams tune, "but when I lied, I lied for us, because you'd never hear the truth."

After my mother died...
.. a rather long time ago, my father ended up back on the dating scene. So many years of marriage had dulled his instincts and he ended up with someone who can only be described as a gold-digging whore of the Heather Mills school of gold-digging whoreishness.

To cut a long story short, her true history only really started coming to light after the wedding bells had stopped ringing. She had never worked a day in her life and been married six times before each one terminating with a very generous (to her) divorce settlement. She was a serial wife, verging on professional scam artist.

The inevitable divorce ensued. He made her an offer which, in the context of her past and their very short marriage, was very generous. She however, was determined to get in front of a judge, shed a few tears and rake in the cash, just as she had done many times before.

Then as luck would have it a friend alerted him to something else that was going on. One of her previous marriages had resulted in a child and she was currently involved in a custody dispute. The judge in that case was already particularly unimpressed with her behaviour and was considering granting custody to her ex-husband: details of her latest behaviour could be the straw that broke the camel's back. Well, since she was clearly not fighting fair, my dad decided a little blackmail was in order: accept his settlement or he would go to her ex-husband with information that would lose her the child.

She squirmed, screamed and threatened for a bit, before she finally realised she was defeated. She eventually relented and took the settlement.

I guess it was a case of him breaking his pro mrs.

My teachers at high school swore to me
that the vegetarians in my year would not be offended at the end-of-year dance with meat in the dinner. I knew these teachers had reputations as practical jokers at such events, putting unexpected cuts of meat in unusual recipes but with so many dietary requirements I couldn't afford to take a chance so I made them cross their hearts and hope to die on the matter.

The starter and main course went off without a hitch, but the bastards were pissing themselves laughing as we bit into our frozen dairy desserts to find some foul tasting leathery meat inside. It turned out they'd found a dead badger and slipped it into the ice cream maker.

That was a brock in prom ice.

My old company included the strategy statement that...
We offer all our staff the opportunity to develop their careers in ways that meets their professional and personal needs. We are proud that the majority of our managers have long service, in many cases starting their careers at a junior level; their experience is a key strength of the Group.

It didn't stop them making me redundant from a management position with 11 years' experience, which didn't meet any of my personal or professional needs.

As an alternative - i do Promise
to punch Jude Law as hard as humanly possible for his latest aftershave advert.

What a cock.

It goes something like this.

Female voice over: 'How will i know it's you....?'
Cock: (in vaguely cockney cock accent) 'Oh, you'll know when i'm there.' (with added accent on 'i'm')

Cockety cock.

I hate that type of shitty advert anyway - but Law's took the biscuit this year.

I promised my nephew that I'd buy him a marmoset for his birthday.

"I'll keep in touch"
Not one of my strong points unfortunately.

There's no specific story to go with it but I'm sure it gets a nod here and there.

Similarly, "We'll be *friends* still" during a break-up: with the best will in the world how easily it can still turn into a broken promise. With laziness like mine, more like inevitable...
(Shouting and throwing things is probably far more constructive - clean break and all that)
