Jumping to Conclusions

Don't jump to conclusions. Your first response to a record or a document may be incorrect.

I posted to my facebook account that I had been in the courtroom in the Hancock County, Illinois, courthouse in front of the judge. One can draw several conclusions from that.

The reality is that I was there for a wedding.

Find out more before you reach a conclusion.

Don't assume it was my wedding either. My statement never indicated in what capacity I was there. Be careful reading more into a statement than is there. It may cause you to go off on a completely incorrect research tangent.
