Jumping to Conclusions

I remember sooooo many times that people misjudged what we were doing with Lilly, because it just did not seem right to them. For example, howPenguins could we eat at a restaurant, but not give the cute little girl with us a meal? If you haven’t read Chasing Lilly, you’ll need to, in order to get the answer to that one. 🙂

A good example of this kind of jumping-to-conclusions happened today to Bruce and I. We were pulling into a parking lot, and a man in a car was beeping his horn loudly at a car that had two, cute elderly ladies in it. They paid him no mind, and kept their car slowly crawling forward until they finally drove away.

I said, “Look at that man, beeping at those old ladies! How mean!”

It was only after the ladies’ car left, that we discovered why he had been beeping. The elderly lady driver had crunched in another car and left the scene, however slowly!

I’m still laughing over that one. Let’s not be too quick to jump to conclusions unless we know the whole story, unless of course, physical abuse is occurring.   😮   Nealie

    We do need to get all the facts by processing the incident before reacting. We have all had a tendency to jump quickly to conclusions!

      I know that I have been guilty of that many times. Lilly’s situations helped me to learn how to give the benefit of the doubt more often.
