I too, have used the quote not to ASSUME anything because it makes an ass- (out of) u-me. I don’t remember where or when I learned this, it’s been so long, but it is so true. Another saying I have used a long time is: If in doubt, ASK! This is the only way to clear up and avoid misunderstandings or miscommunications. Thanks for the very good advice.
Great to know Jennie! It has stuck with me throughout the years. And I love your other long time saying, asking is always the best option. Many thanks for your comments.
A very good point. I also laughed out loud at the ASSUME-joke, it made me think of one of my favorite movies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfvTwv5o1Qs
Thank you for your feedback, Isabella! Glad you can appreciate the ASSUME joke, great clip.
