    I Think We All Have Insecur...

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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Just because I look at you funny

    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...

    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.

    Happened Only Last Week

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
