I Hate That Some People Make Assumptions About Me

    based On Handwriting Of All Things!!!

    I'll grant you, my handwriting could use a lot of improvement.  It looks like it came from the pencil of a 3rd grader.  Seeing as how I'm a grown woman, assumptions are made.  People seem to equate childish handwriting with a childish mind or a lack of intelligence. Neither of...

    Happened Only Last Week

    I hate when people make assumptions about me. I lost a job last week because the owners of the business thought I was too shy and didn't engage with clients as I was supposed to. I was only in training at the time and I thought I was supposed to stay in the background and not...

    You Know What They Say About Assumptions....

    There are quite a few assumptions lurking about that I'm never told of until I get to know someone better. The first being that they thought I didn't like them when we first met. I'm a pretty standoffish person and it takes me a little while to warm up to people. You wouldn't...

    Lazy And Not Very Bright

    I've been called both.  Neither is true, but people make these assumptions, and I resent it.I'm not a size six.  Or eight.  I've been rejected by men several times because my weight isn't ideal.  One episode in particular sticks with me.  A man said to me "I can't date you...

    Big Girl

    Like it or not, there are a lot of assumptions that go with being overweight.  The one that makes me maddest is that I just eat too much.  I get dirty looks from people in restaurants, as if I shouldn't be eating a cheeseburger.  The thing is, overeating is not...

    What Mom Used To Say About Assumptions...

    "There will always be an a*s*s* in an assumption". She was a self made woman that was an orphan during the Great Depression. She worked as much as she could. Taught herself how to sew the most beautiful clothes.  Put herself through college, met my Dad who only had a 4th grade...

    I Am Not Who I Appear To Be.

    I show a different person then who I am, to the world. They make all kinds of assumptions of who I am and how I think, and don't even bother to think that there might be more to me then they see.

    It's Only Natural...

    I know that people talk. That's just what we do. And those who don't know me can say a lot of things that may not be true. I don't mind telling people the truth and how I feel. But, I have have to weed out those who aren't truly interested in me. Because the ones who are really...

    Only about five people in this world know me

    thoroughly. Even these people sometimes don't know every single part of my personality or who I am, so when someone who I barely know at all pretends they know some aspects of me I find it infuriating. It's as if they have an image of me in their head that they want to mold me...

    I Find It Quite Amusing

    When I was at school, everyone thought I was a certain type of person. Some thought I was posh, until I opened my mouth, others thought I was easy, my skirt was very short. But even now people make lots of assumptions about me. The one that gets to me the most, is...

    I think we all have insecurities and that's why we tend to make these assumptions as a defense mechanism.

    The most common assumption people make about me

    involves my choice in music. I grew up with a lot of the music from the '80s and early '90s, especially rock and heavy metal. In fact, if you were to look through my music catalog, you'll see bands ranging from Aerosmith to Judas Priest to ZZ Top. However, some people...

    It's True........

    Absolutely NOTHING will bring out the B.I.T.C.H in me more than assuming you KNOW me by looking at me or talking to me for 2 seconds. I am SO more complex then that!! Trust me, I am not OBESE because I never stop eating. I am NOT insecure because I'm looking for...

    So Sick Of This

    I have long hair. I listen to Heavy Metal. I wear a lot of black. People assume that this means I'm unable to string two sentences together, do drugs, hate my parents, and am sad and depressive. I get talked to like I'm some stupid stoner, but nothing could be farther from the...

    Left Hand Corner Of A Cottage

    People have some idea about me, they know a few things, maybe rather odd and unusual things but like the broader picture of a puzzle, just fitting a few pieces together in the bottom left hand corner of "country cottage" doesn't make me a hedge. I'm a hedge, the garden, the...

    after you say something doesn't mean I'm 'stupid' or 'don't understand'. It actually means i'm thinking on a level that your condescending azz can't even imagine, really expanding on the topic but no you have the nerve to repeat it all as if I didn't understand. I also hate...
