The Benefit Of Doubt
By nature I tend to give benefit of doubt. This annoys my wife who just thinks I’m always defending other people. I tend to say things like “well, maybe there was a good reason”, “Perhaps we should hear both sides of the story” or “everyone makes mistakes”. Sometimes she’s right and perhaps I see the best when it’s not always there but I prefer giving the benefit of doubt than damn everyone who makes a mistake.
Mind you, I can still burn someones ear off if I think they are taking the mickey.
