I'm pretty open but a few people have made the mistake of thinking I'm easy going. Most of the time they're right but when push comes to shove I'm a pretty good shover.

Back in high school everyone thought I was just a quiet goody goody lol.. But outside of school I've done some pretty stupid things that could have gotten me arrested (I nearly did a few times lol. Example - I decided to build a big bonfire at the park one night.  2 firetrucks and 4 cop cars pulled up with their sirens on, I booked it lol) xD plus, i was loud and spontaneous at times xD  ( I had another side to me that none of my classmates saw, only a few closer friends)

I've been told that I can be intimidating.  I gotta say I don't get it.  I'm a 5'2" tall, 62 year old woman who could beat my way out of a paper bag.

My mother is the same height and has more than 10 years on you, all her grandkids have no doubt if they deserve it Grandma will smack them. I don't think she has ever hit any of them EVER.

Some people find this misconception that they can buy me about something that I disagree with or don't wanna do. They believe everyone in any level has a price. It  takes some time till they realize I'm out of price lists & I won't sell my principles.

As a man, I'm not so tall. I don't like it tho, but the good thing is I have nothing less in my manly strength, but sometimes some people misconception that & they force me to make them regret it!

I have a fun & serious attitude both, but each one of them appears into me in a appropriate place as I feel it, but in general my main attitude is serious,specially when it comes to doing something that I feel responsibility for. Sometimes by that seriousness people consider me that I'm kind of unfriendly or such too serious person which it's opposite, iIm actually friendly & enjoy meeting new people! & when the right time comes  I can be too funny as well!

I'm a big guy and I typically don't smile. Some people think I remind them of Carl from Slingblade and assume I'm unapproachable and mean. That couldn't be farther from the truth though!

People who know me for any length of time usually know who I am. Some people who first meet me seem to think because I have blonde hair and am well endowed that I am stupid. I have learned to have a lot of fun playing with those people. (Eye brow wiggle)

Unfortunately it seems, to me, it is becoming more and more prevalent among the young (those who are not ancient) the assumption that once a person reaches a certain age or has grey hair they are useless and should automatically be put out to pasture. I know far too many folks whose knowledge and experience are wasted because of false assumptions and misconceptions.
