Making an a55 out of you and me

“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.

Never Assume

This quote feels appropriate for this week…Especially with everything that has been in the internet from Harambe to the Johnny Depp, Amber Heard situation. Just try to remember people we don’t know everything…I can’t even begin to mention how many “celebrities” have suddenly become Gorilla ‘experts’. If you are going to listen to anyone, please listen to the actual experts in this field!
