That because I work from home part-time I'm not working when I'm home. And that as they are family I should fix their computers for nothing

Ha, depends for what ...

Quoting tnnikkij:

Will u please come help me with my DDs? :)


Quoting Jinxed8:

we all get mis-judged a LOT !  I am the best example of never judge a book by it's cover.


People I meet through work either assume I own the company I work for, or people who don't know me from work would never assume I am an executive for a multi million dollar company.  (I don't do the business suit attire, ever)


I have been told I come off rude / snob until they get to know me.


People would also never guess that I have major "martha stewart tendencies" like baking from scratch, themed birthday cakes, canning, arts & crafts, cooking up storms,  scrapbooking and frankly I'm really really good at it too.  I am anal retentive about my DD's birthday parties always trying to make them perfect and out-do them every year.

Whn i cleaned people's houses i had an elderly lady ask me if i liked girls cuz i was wearing gym shorts and a t shirt. When she found out i was an unwed straight mother she was.flabbergasted. i just laughed. I get that a lot but dont care.

 alot of people assume that because I use/need a scooter in stores its because I am fat and lazy...they are right to a degree ...I am fat because I am not able to exercise..my back is a total mess...I have had I think 19 surgeries on it...you tend to lose track after awhile...I have lost the feeling in my feet so I cant walk...anything that I put in my mouth goes to storage because I will never be able to do something to take the weight off...but I cant very well wear a poster that says why I am this way and just look away when I hear people talk to me offensive or give me a dirty look......

I have had ppl assume that I am a bad mom, that I party a lot bc of my tats...oh and that I am stupid  and have no skills since I am a SAHM.. truth is that I have a wonderful husband who lets me stay home with our wonderful DD.
