  • I try not to judge a book by its cover however, there is a slip up once in a while. When I slip up though its in my tone of voice. I dont say anything mean per say or treat them differently my tone though is just very nasty. Something I have work on in general my tone of voice whoops!

  • I get all the facts and realized I was right.

  • Yes and no. sometimes I find it hard, if you quack like a duck, walk like a duck and have webbed feet, i will assume you're a duck.

  • There have been times I've made assumptions, and a few of them have been wrong.

  • I sometimes assume things about people and am proven wrong, other times I just get a strong vibe from them and know whether or not I would like them. Like my hubby's friends ex. I only met her once but could tell as soon as I walked into the same room with her that she was just evil. And then there's a woman I met at a mommy and me class. I knew right away we'd get along. So some aren't judgements they're just intuitions. But most of the time, especially here, they are judgements.

  • I don't make assumptions about everyone, but it is human nature to make some assumptions about people. I have an open mind about being proven wrong though, whether the assumption were good or bad.

  • As much as I try to get all the facts first, I'm sad to admit that sometimes I do judge first. It's normally with someone driving by or someone I see walking around places. I don't do it all the time, but it still doesn't make it right.

  • like those posts about push up bras for seven year olds. After seeing so many posts about it, I looked up some of the stories about it.
    The pics that were provided to slam the products didn't look like push up bras to me, they looked like swimsuit tops.
    I checked the store site, and they are listed under swimwear for kids. I called the store and asked if they were padded and they said no. they had a basic lining that could be removed if you wished.

    so there's one example for you. They aren't bras and there doesn't seem to be any 'push up' things in them.

  • I try not to make assumptions...and I'm generally able to avoid it. I find it more difficult when someone is being ignorant and rude.
