: : It is said that there are a series of phrases in english that are normally lies. This series includes:

: : 1) the check is in the mail
: : 2) I'll respect you in the morning

: : Does anyone have more phrases that should be taken with a grain of salt and a lie detector?

: We'll try and get you a raise after you've been here a while.
