we all get mis-judged a LOT ! I am the best example of never judge a book by it's cover.
People I meet through work either assume I own the company I work for, or people who don't know me from work would never assume I am an executive for a multi million dollar company. (I don't do the business suit attire, ever)
I have been told I come off rude / snob until they get to know me.
People would also never guess that I have major "martha stewart tendencies" like baking from scratch, themed birthday cakes, canning, arts & crafts, cooking up storms, scrapbooking and frankly I'm really really good at it too. I am anal retentive about my DD's birthday parties always trying to make them perfect and out-do them every year.
Whn i cleaned people's houses i had an elderly lady ask me if i liked girls cuz i was wearing gym shorts and a t shirt. When she found out i was an unwed straight mother she was.flabbergasted. i just laughed. I get that a lot but dont care.
alot of people assume that because I use/need a scooter in stores its because I am fat and lazy...they are right to a degree ...I am fat because I am not able to exercise..my back is a total mess...I have had I think 19 surgeries on it...you tend to lose track after awhile...I have lost the feeling in my feet so I cant walk...anything that I put in my mouth goes to storage because I will never be able to do something to take the weight off...but I cant very well wear a poster that says why I am this way and just look away when I hear people talk to me offensive or give me a dirty look......
I have had ppl assume that I am a bad mom, that I party a lot bc of my tats...oh and that I am stupid and have no skills since I am a SAHM.. truth is that I have a wonderful husband who lets me stay home with our wonderful DD.
That am strong,unemotional,materialistic n independant. When actually am very emotional but keeps it locked up cus I bruise easily! And I love working for wht I want,but hate not having money! N I appear strong but need a hug n a shoulder to lean on most times cuz I realy don't wanna be strong! Lol! Do I make any sense??
