    Re: plzzzzzz help me

    I promised you = simple past tense
    I had promised you = past perfect tense

    a. Yesterday I promised you I would call. (simple action that occurred in the past.)
    b. I told him this morning that I had promised you I would call. ("I had promised you" happened before "I told him.")

    Let's try another example:

    a. I worked there in 2007.
    b. Yesterday she told him that I had worked there in 2007.

    Does that help make it a little more clear?
