Washington, DC - Each year about this time Americans make promises they know they will not keep.  It's called making a resolution for the New Year and the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] has collected a few such commitments that people have made for 2018. 

One brave soul put his in writing on social media promising to "work with neglected children-my own."  Another swore he would not "ring the stewardess button on airplanes just to get her phone number."  And, one faithful employee said "I will not bore my boss with the same excuse for taking leaves.  I will think of some more excuses."
