I once was told that assume stood for ‘making an ass out of u and me’ because an assumption is accepting something as truth without question or proof.
During these politic times we seem to be doing a lot of assuming without doing any research or asking of questions. Perhaps we should do both before we ‘assume’ something as truth especially on Social Media. Someone posts something on Facebook and all of a sudden it becomes the truth without any questioning, asking or fact checking.
Don’t’ assume everything is true because someone says it is or it has been posted on Social Media. Do your homework!
