I'm short, yappy and..... oh, what was that bright shiny thing that just flew past?
Ricky Gervais in "The Office" has it better - "assume makes an ass out of u and me."
Now that's a good one, I'm liking it.
Assumption's close colleague "common-sense" is often assisting the Mother of all Fuck ups. It provokes a particularly pavolvian response from me, when I'm told in a nicely patronising way that something is "just common-sense".Muttering through gritted teeth: "neither common nor sense. usually."On the bright side, it's an excellent basis on which to assume that the speaker has an ability to race in a common-sense way straight into fuck ups. That's my kind of assumption.
From common sense to fuck-up in under twelve seconds'. It could almost be a car ad.
It applies to my industry too which is design and print. "You did say 100,000 copies didn't you?""No. It's a mass card. She didn't know that many people".
Oh man, I would be such a liability in your industry.
