Sample Answer of Talk About a Time You Made a Promise to Someone
Well, it is obvious that making promises is nothing challenging but keep them as the saying goes that “Never make a promise a haste” but carelessly I made this mistake. The story started when my buddy John came back from an abroad trip to Singapore, and he invited me to a meeting party to rewind memories. Certainly, I accepted that invitation and made a promise to come without any hesitation. The reason behind my promise was that we had been long time no see or call, and we were snowed under with a hectic schedule on a daily basis. Therefore, this could be a chance for both to give our brains a rest before diving into work again. However, I didn’t realize it on the very same day, and my teacher appointed me to complete the science project by the evening of that day because the deadline was changed by two days earlier. Immediately, I got down to finish it as fast as possible in order not to be late for the party. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to make it on time, so I called him and informed him I would be missing the opening of the party. Sad as he was, he still gladly forgave me, and together we had slap-up meals and sang to the blue overnight.
Follow-ups of Talk About a Time You Made a Promise to Someone
Question 1:- Do parents in your country make a lot of promises to their children?
Answer- Yes, I think parents everywhere do that, not just parents in my country. And we do that all the time. It is because children are vulnerable, and they constantly seek reassurance from their parents. By making promises to their children, parents can make them feel secure, and it’s also a good way to teach children about commitment.
Question 2:- Do children also make a lot of promises to their parents?
Answer- Yes, of course, if parents can make promises, their children can also do so. Since this is the way for children to gain the recognition of parents, mostly promises relate to the result of academic learning or attainment in sports competitions.
Question 3:- Are most people able to fulfil their promises?
Answer- Yes, most people complete their promise. They do it because they want to establish good examples in front of their children and maintain their relationships. On the other hand, due to some reasons, sometimes parents do not fulfil their promise, but they explain the reason for their children and make sure that their children would understand their problem.
Question 4:- How do you feel when others break their promises?
Answer- I think I will consider the reason behind that action. If there was a plausible reason that drove them to break the promises, I would certainly show sympathy for that. However, if that was on purpose, I would be extremely annoyed and disappointed since it could hinder the progress of the task the team and I are carrying on.
