Question is up there...
I try not to care if people assume things about me, but sometimes, it makes me worry.
Im a babysitter/nanny (im not sure which one is appropriate for me) and I baby sit for 4 days. I babysit at the mom's job so I take the baby (1 year old) out in the stroller and I can't help but feel embarrassed. I always run into old classmates, and people I see at school and they just stare with a surprised look on their face. they probably think I have a baby, and it doesn't help that the baby I babysit looks so much like me. I would like to explain, but I don't talk to those people so I just keep walking. Aww man. I just can't help but to be so embarrassed. I don't know if to care or not.
Anyway, do you care if people make assumptions about you?

Well I know people will make assumptions all the time. No one can resist making assumptions, even if you try not to make any, you're missing a bunch of assumptions you're making without even knowing you make them because of your education, culture, experiences etc...
Anyways, once you know they do. You can't really get all to worried about it, unless your goals depend on people having the right assumptions about you.
However, in general I don't feel the need to explain myself to anyone unless I have a good reason to. Them possibly thinking something negative about me, in most cases doesn't qualify as a good reason, so I wouldn't explain myself.0
