A Few Words About “Assume”


I keep hearing a cliche that drives me nuts: “When you assume something, you make an ass out of you and me.”

I completely disagree. Look at the definition. To assume means “to take as granted or true.” It has nothing to do with me and has everything to do with you.

So, when you assume, you risk making an ass of you. I don’t even enter the picture.  I refuse to be a party to this.

Until next time! Use the right words!
