Tell me about a time someone made a completely wrong assumption about you. 
(And did you totally throat punch them?)

There have been many occasions when someone has made a wrong assumption about me. The first one to come to mind took place many years ago. I had just started to sell Avon and attended a sales meeting. Avon was very formal at the time and expected their reps to look well put together. I went to the meeting dressed up with my hair done and my makeup on. I was called to the front by the manager. I was introduced and she listed my accomplishments. I had a goal at the time to be the best so I was flattered.

The other ladies at the meeting thought I was too good for them and that I was stuck up. After several meetings their concept changed. I offered wonderful advice and complimented the others on their work. Once they understood my goals we became good friends.

I gave up selling Avon 14 years ago however I have many of the friends I made back then. How you look on the outside is not what is on the inside.

The other incident that came to mind was a lesson i learned from my Grandmother. I was young and made the comment that a  woman should not wear white shoes with black stockings.  At that point my grandmother suggested that those might be the only shoes she had. I never looked at people wearing shoes or other clothing in the same light.

Have a wonderful week and thank you for sharing in my blog.
