“You should never assume. You know what happens when you assume. You make an ass out of you and me because that’s how it’s spelled.” Ellen DeGeneres
One thing I have noticed lately about people having discussion is that there is a lot of assuming going on.
- Assuming that people have had the same education as you
- Assuming people just “should know”.
- Assuming that people have had the same life experiences as you, so should just “know.
- Assuming because someone doesn’t have the same background as you, they don’t “know”.
Did you know?
- Only half of the worlds populations even has the Internet. Asia has the highest amount of users, Europe is second. That one shocked me! Internet World Stats. My country isn’t even in the Top 20. (2016)
- Some researchers believe that by 2015-2016 2 billion people will have a computer or a smart phone.
- 774 million people around the world can’t even read. Good Reading Magazine January 2017.
