Once upon a time when a Man's Word meant something



You have no doubt, regardless of generation, heard the term 'A Man's Word and a Handshake'. It is usually used in conjunction with how lawyers have contributed greatly to the problems in America.

Well some of us still believe in that old adage and practice it in an ongoing and unspoken philosophy relied upon daily. Not just a Man but an Adult. When a person gives his/her word and agrees to certain terms in an open forum and then avoids your attempts to contact for the follow up it is apparent that they do not prescribe to that same philosophy. When they eventually do respond with a 'Dog ate my homework' type of childish excuse for changing their minds, selling to someone else, or any other motivation it is nothing short of extremely insulting.

I would challenge everyone to adopt and follow through with the a fore described philosophy; one that was the basis for creating a nation with strong social expectations and to the ordinarily raised person with high moral character, just plain common sense.

If you want to be childish and change your mind then please at least resolve to be Man enough to tell the truth and not practice the art of avoidance.
