Supervise your assumptions. They’re out-of-line at times. Some more than others.
And some are certainly more addicted to certainty than others. No one likes to be thrust into uncomfortable situations due to a lack of awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and potential preferences of others. Pay attention. Be respectful.
Resist the misplaced gumption toward assumption at all times. Have a filter. Observe. Think. Pause. Act.
