Assumptions

We all do it, make assumptions about people or situations, usually with very little information. Sometimes our assumptions are proven right, and sometimes, we are embarrassed at how we misjudged a person or situation. I won't run Ms. Boyle's performance on Britain's Got Talent. She's been so overplayed. But remember the first time you saw that video? Here was this frumpy, homely looking middle-aged woman and because of the package she came in, we didn't expect very much. Then she opened her mouth to sing, and we were stunned! Our assumptions were dispelled.

We're only human, we make assumptions to get through life, to categorize events and people quickly and then move on. Well, a friend of mine recently sent me a number of videos where we're drawn to make assumptions. I laughed so hard! Hope you enjoy them too.
