Depends on what it is and what it means to get it + a little of who your dealing with and your relationship with them.

If it is sufficient to remember after 2 years then I dare say you should ask them to stand behind the promise.

A promise doesn't have a time limit on it. We seem to be past the days when things like a handshake was an iron-clad contract.

There's an adage going around; If you loan somebody $20.00 and you never see them or it again, it was probably worth it.

I know what you meant. In MD you got 15 yrs to legally claim what the owe you. However, if the monetary amount involve is more than $300.00 the law says it must be written to be enforceable in the courts as breach of contract, otherwise is a civil matter (not contract law) that will be at issue here. Good luck.[:@]

There is no $$ involved,but when someone promises you something,they should honer there promise. Don't make promises you can't keep,or don't want to keep

Larry, e-mail or PM me so that I can understand your situation a little more as it's vague here. No names have to be used and it won't go past you and me.
Something that might be in the neighborhood. I won a gift certificate from a manufacturer of RC boating items for more than one item (see.., vague) and took forever to get the items. Knowing that it was a tax write-off for that person as a donation and the calendar year had passed I had to stay on him to get what I had won in the raffle. I had my choice of the items and was told to contact said person ASAP which I did. Knowing this person was producing a lot of the items I felt that I was being pushed to the back burner. After having enough of waiting I finally but reluctantly aired it in public. That seemed to get through to him and the word got around, with his dealers making calls to him also. Later on I got an apology and in the mail got an extra item thrown in.
