Things aren’t always what they seem to be at first glance.

We have probably all seen an email or blog post with some funny but wrong answers kids have offered on tests.  One of the most famous is this:


Recently was sent a few that I have not seen before, including this one.

This answer left the teach a bit concerned about the mother’s influence on her child.


As it turns out the child was drawing a picture of her mother with a snow shovel at her workplace Home Depot.

The moral of the story is that we should be careful about being too literal (as in the first example) and remember that appearance can be deceiving (as in the second).

This is one of the many things people don’t often realize, things aren’t always what they seem, so stop making judgments when you don’t know the truth. You can’t depict anything from what is in front of you so it is best to believe in what the person is trying to say. Of ten words are deceiving and things are easily misunderstood and led to making assumptions. Avoid being so ignorant and look beyond what is in front of you and just try to understand.
