"I'll Call You" -- a Survey on Telephone Manners

It happens to all of us -- someone will tell us "I'll call you," and then not call.

Okay now, time to 'fess up....

Have you ever done this to anyone?

Have you ever promised someone a phone call and then broken your word?

Yes No/Can't recall ever doing it

If you answered yes, please also answer the following.

Think back to a time when you did it and felt guilty or embarrassed about it later.
Or maybe there was a time when you did it and felt you were justified.

Why did you make the promise? (Check all that apply)

I wanted to give or receive information to/from this person
I just wanted to chat some more
I was too busy to talk then, and wanted to continue later
I felt that the promise was socially expected of me
I was coerced into promising

Why didn't you call?
