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...

    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...

    thats not a big deal.  Of course I don't mean all of you... Anywhere from spelling my name wrong to thinking what catagories I fall under (which is sorta a big thing actually) I don't really care about small assumptions. The more people know me in time they will...

    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...

    You And Me

    You know what you do when you assume don't you? You make an *** outta you and me.I cannot stand when people think they have to be afraid of me because of the brothers I have. They assume that I am a "hard ***" like them. I'm not, really. I just can't stand ignorant people. I...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    Happened Only Last Week

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

    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.

    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...
