Do You Judge a Book by its Cover?

24 May

Do you sometimes look at a person and make a quick judgement of that person’s character without knowing anything about them?  It’s only natural and I think humans do it all of the time.  I mean personally, if I was to cross a clown – regardless if he looked nice or not – I would squeal like there was a 1000 hounds after me cause I ain’t talking to no clown.  Capice?

But humans – they are different.  Do they judge other peeps by what they wear?  How they look?  What they drive?  Sure they do.  That’s what makes us all different.  BUT, are they missing out on some good friendships along their way in life by making harsh judgments?

Take this situation that recently happened with mom.  Mom, dad and Nana went to a Mexican restaurant recently.  There was a line and they were standing in a corner waiting for their name to be called.  In the meantime, this family came in (mom and dad with their daughter who was about 8-9 years old).  They put their name in to the hostess and stoodd across the room.  The daughter wanted to be held so the mom picked her up.  In doing so, her hands were full so of course the hub unit holds her purse (which is another posting for another day – snorts with piggy laughter).

Now, mom thought it was hilarious to see the guy holding the mom’s purse so she walks over to him.  She gets really close to him and says, “That purse is awesome with your outfit.  I give it a 10”.  Now, the guy grins and says to mom, “Thank you darling.  I try to coordinate.”  It was totally hilarious and a great laugh was held by all.  When mom came back, Nana was laughing and told her she was brave.  Mom asked why and Nana told her why.  This is what got our minds going about judging a book by its cover.

Would you have done this like mom?  How about if the guy had long black hair, a beard and a mustache?  How about if the guy was wearing all black with lots of studs and leather?  How about if the guy was a biker dude?  How about if the guy was packing heat and had a gun on his hip?  Would any of this make a difference to you if he was a ‘biker dude’ or ‘the guy next door’?

I’m not saying that all biker dudes are nice – far from it.  But we are saying that sometimes one needs to not make first judgments of someone.  And let me tell you something, if anyone knows that it’s mom with her new purple hair.  Some of the most friendliest and loyal friends can just be different 🙂  That’s your piggy thought for the day ♥

      See that’s what moms says. You can’t judge a book by its cover. You have to get into it and be friendly 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    My dad was a biker too. Not a dork, but not a Hell’s Angel either. Everyone makes assumptions at some point in their lives.

      Yes you are so right. Mom talks to everyone and dad calls her his little flirt. I’m not sure what flirt means. XOXO – Bacon

    I typically don’t judge at all anymore. Been wrong too many times, and wished I’D known better then. One time I heard someone say, what if it’s Jesus? Made me think! And as far as purses go…any man that’ll hold a women’s purse is alright with me. Oops! Is that still judging???

      Too funny! There are some men that won’t come near a woman’s purse – let alone hold it. Mom figured this was a good guy and I have to tell you she’s a pretty good judge of character. I mean she picked me and daddy, right? Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    She was brave. In that case, just because some men just might take offense. Jan wouldn’t walk over, but if he was standing nearby, she might not be able to resist teasing.

      Mom loves teasing peeps. I think because where she works there is a bunch of guys that she is used to working and teasing peeps. XOXO – Bacon

    I have a jeep I take shopping and I am amazed at how often a lovely man will smile and just lean over and lift it into the tram for me when it is loaded up. It is often a man who I wouldn’t have thought was the “type” to bother with a “mature” lady and her jeep so yes, I too make assumptions which are completely wrong. Fair dinkum some of the most “gentlemanly” behaviour I have encountered has come from the most ungentlemanly looking men. ps. It it also amazes me how easy and light they make my jeep look like to lift. Hooray for lovely men whatever they look like. 😀

      Exactly! Mom tries to have an open mind with peeps that she meets which is awesome. Just yesterday she did something that was hilarious but we shall wait on sharing that. But WOW mom is crazy at times. XOXO – Bacon

    It’s much nicer to go through life appreciating the differences in people rather than judging them, don’t you think? I talk to people without worry about the “exterior” but I can usually size up if they’re open to a stranger speaking or not! Some people just aren’t very approachable!

      Yes!! Dad says that women have intuition that helps them know who is bad or good. That definitely comes in handy. XOXO – Bacon

      See – that’s exactly what I’m saying my nefkitty. You never know how peeps are and we are not to judge. Not everyone is bad and not everyone is good. You have to use your intuition and never put yourself out there alone. Hogs and snouts my sweet friend. XOXO – Bacon
