Do you remember some of the things you were taught as a youngster, then found that they were not true at all?
Here is one of mine...
The only stupid question is the one not asked (or, there is no such thing as a stupid question)
Boy is that ever so wrong! In the "real" world I have experienced that sometimes there is such a thing as a stupid question. In my first real job after getting married and out of college, I asked my boss a question and his response was, "That's a stupid question!"
Well needless to say I was dumbfounded. I always believed the adage about there being no stupid questions. Experience has shown me that there are.
What have you learned in life? Are there things you assumed to be a truism and found out they were not?
