In everyday life people automatically assume anything and everything. Often the person doing the assuming is not right. For example, I know a woman who was renting a condo that she owns to another woman and her daughter. They began falling behind in their rent. She gave them numerous opportunities to catch up and pay. Instead they automatically assumed this lack of payment, including bounced checks would continue. She finally told them to pay or be evicted. They chose not to believe her and when she filed in court the woman was furious. She demanded to stay and when the owner woman said no she then asked her where was she supposed to live. The tenant is an older woman and cannot expect everyone to do everything for her. Facebook has continual videos particularly about restaurants about automatically assuming about diners hoping to have a meal. The host or hostesses immediately judge by the appearance of people and then refuse to allow them in the eatery. In one video there was a woman wearing a scarf over her head. It was after the lunch rush so there was no one in the facility. The hostesses refused to set her. When she discovered that the woman was not only the owner’s mother but was recovering from cancer, it only affected her in that she didn’t want to lose her job. The owner did fire her as she didn’t feel she would treat any future diners appropriately. In other videos, there are individuals who automatically assume they will be hired for a position as they wear expensive clothes. It usually ends up not working out for them. Frequently, family members automatically assume they are not being treated fairly, that they are not given loans they are seeking from other family members and more. It is always better to obtain the facts. Then you can think clearly and make intelligent decisions. People often automatically assume a variety of things about me, does it happen to you?
