What assumptions do people make about you?

Some people assume I am younger then I am. As a result they assume I had my oldest daughter when I was a teenager.

Some people assume my two older kids and my youngest kid have different fathers.

Some people assume I am on my second marriage

Some people, when they see me with my youngest, assume she is my first kid and that I am not an exeprienced mom.

None of these things really bother me....it is annoying, yes. But I don't normally get bent out of shape about it.

What are some things people assume about you and does it bother you?

I have purple hair, tatts (not big or obvious, but visible when I wear short sleeves) and 11 piercings in my ears. I always get looks hen they see me, then see my DD dressed in "normal" clothes and whatnot. Almost like they wonder if I stole her from someone.

Right after I had her, I was in a store with her, and carrying her around makes me look a bit like a child bride. I got cussed by some old lady for being a "baby having a baby". I totally enjoyed the shitty look on her face when I told her that I was in fact, 32 and married. LMAO Her other old biddy friends about died laughing at her.

Very much is.  "you just drip sexuality, you're very.... feminine"(while looking at my chest).  that was a reason I got once when someone was acting like i was just ready to go home with him.

People assume that SO & I are married. 

Then when they find out we aren't, they assume I'm just some chick he knocked up. lol 

Some people assume that I'm a lazy parent if they see my 5 year old having a melt down. I am not a lazy parent, but DS has anxiety & ADHD. His emotional melt downs are part of life & dealing with what he has. Talking to him during a melt down just adds fuel to the fire so as long as he isn't harming himself or anyone else, I do not give attention to his fits. 

Some people assume that because I bought our cat from a breeder that I'm a terrible person who sentences animals in animal shelters to death. Untrue. lol I foster animals, and I also donate money, food, toys, blankets, towels, & other items to our local shelters.

That I'm younger than I really am.

That we should give money away (no joke, someone actually said that to us).

That I'm nice, lol.

I'm from Philadelphia, people always assume that I'm extremely Liberal.
