Our expert says:
I suspect many of the "promises" people make to each other are empty, and that most people expect you to assume that when they make them ! In my experience, having lived and worked in several countries, it seems worse in SA, though - people say things they think will make yopu happy, without any actual intention of making sure it happens.
And not even vague promises, either. You must come to dinner with us next week, would Thursday be OK ? they say. And you never hear from them again.
But nobody has very many true friends. That's part of what bothers me about the fantasy world of Facebook and MySpace - someone claims thousands of "friends" - utter drivel ! Would ANY of those come round on a stormy night if they needed help ? Not likely !
