Tell us about a time you made a false assumption about a person or a place — how did they prove you wrong?


This is the daily prompt from yesterday, by the way.

     This happens all the time. I see someone in a camp, at school, or at the store, and I immediately start making assumptions – they look like a mean person, they seem awkward, that person looks like they’re throwing their life away (which happens to most people at school that are deemed “cool”).

But sometimes those assumptions are wrong. I’ve seen the people at school who look like they’d be popular, but then I talk to them and they’re totally cool.

So I saw this person who, like mentioned before, looked like a “cool” kid, so I tried to stay away from them. But when we were partners for an assignment, they turned out to be really nice and smart.

And while this may be a short post, I’m still going to leave with a cheesy overused inspirational sentence.

Never judge a book by its cover.
