Ignorance is not a license to assume

When I was a kid, my older brother once left a slice of Giordano’s famous Chicago style stuffed pizza in the fridge and, being the opportunist I am, I completely devoured it. When he confronted me, I defended myself by saying, “Oh, I didn’t know it was yours.” His reply: “It doesn’t matter. You knew it wasn’t YOURS!”

Here’s today’s two cents:

Ignorance is not a license to assume.

If you don’t know what’s going on in a particular situation, then you don’t know. Admit what you don’t know, suspend judgement, and wait until further information is available.

Don’t fill the knowledge gap with your own assumptions about what the truth must be.

Be at peace with not knowing. Unanswered questions wont kill you.

There’s no need to make things complicated by drawing conclusions you don’t have evidence for.

Take the time to find out what’s really going on or mind your own business.

That’s my two cents.
