jumping to conclusions
Things tend to go wrong when people are jumping to conclusions. If they automatically assume the worst, many times they are wrong. It’s easy jumping to conclusions if you hear or see something but aren’t one hundred percent accurate as to what you heard or witnessessed. For example, a woman begins snooping on her husband’s phone. She finds a picture of him with another woman. She instantly begins jumping to conclusions. She believes he is cheating on her. She decides to keep watching his phone to see what happens. She doesn’t see them kissing only hugging. She begins to become angry and is thinking of leaving him. Then, one day he comes home with the woman. She begins to lose her patience and asks why he is bringing her into their home. She continues to rant and he tries to explain. He finally forces her to calm down. He then states, “I would like you to meet my sister.” Naturally, the wife’s face drops and her face turns red. She is humiliated and embarrassed. She starts apologizing when the sister just steps up and hugs her. Then, the real story of how they found each other is revealed. This is a happy ending, but most stories end up unpleasant. Sadly, the assumptions are often correct and hurtful to the other party. In the Good Gus series jumping to conclusions was only via Bad Bart. He assumed the negative but Sheriff Gus did the positive.

Have you ever noticed that when a situation occurs people automatically jump to conclusions? They never seem to want to wait for the facts or hard data. Parents do it often with children. They automatically jump to conclusions if they are late, receive a note or letter from the school, or arrive home early from classes. Of course, there are parents who automatically assume the worst. They immediately panic and think that something terrible has happened, when all it could have been was a late bus, a late other parent collecting the boys or girls, or they were suspended from school. It is understandable, particularly in the United States with bomb threats, terrorist threats, and individuals wielding guns, that fear should be their first reaction. However, that is the first reason that most children have a cell or mobile phone now. It gives the parents the comfort of knowing they can call immediately to verify that their child is safe. In relationships, a partner will jump to conclusions for almost the same reasons as parents do except for a few additional ones. It could be the husband or wife claimed to be at a particular event when actually they are with another person at a rendezvous. Of course, there are signs of cheating so the possible jumping to conclusions may be accurate. There are also the jealous type partners that jump to conclusions as as soon as the person arrives home, the accusations fly. There is also the medical report that can make you jump to conclusions after the doctor orders tests and then the office rings and insists you come in immediately for an appointment. Then, anyone would jump to conclusions and usually the worst. The internet is a great help in making anyone check their symptoms, check the types of tests that were performed and then their imaginations run wild. It is any and all of the times I have mentioned that waiting for real data, holding off on accusations, and trying to be patient until the actual facts are available. The Good Gus Series stories have parents and children checking data and information before they jump to conclusions particularly when the earth shakes, a swarm of bugs head towards Pecos, and the approaching of a sound of a train when there are no tracks. Sheriff Gus, due to extensive reading and studying, is able to calm the towns people when all these events occur. Remember, maecharlesbooks. is available for your data collection for finances.
