"What's something people assume about you when they first meet you?" –– That was today's burning question from Redditor mozzasanasur, who reminded us how it's so easy for people to refer to stereotypes.


"I built a reputation..."

Giphy

I built a reputation at my friend's college as the drunk moron who would do and say anything. When my friend came to my college for my graduation none of his friends believed him that I was actually graduating. Realistically I don't drink that much I really only partied when I visited there.

"Seriously..."

That I'm 15.

Seriously... people are constantly knocking on MY door, at MY house, that I pay the bills for, and asking to speak to my parents???

"My younger co-workers..."

Giphy

Everyone assumes I'm far more prim and proper than is actually the case. (I'm an older woman with a lot of white hair). My younger co-workers will accidentally swear in front of me, and then turn to me with looks of horror. It's hysterical.

"Nope..."

I'm laid back. Nope, just a nervous wreck whose only coping mechanism is to seize up.

"I'm 34..."

That I'm gay. I'm 34 and I really don't know why but most friends and my dad think I'm gay. Not sexually attracted to men... sorry folks.

"When I wear my glasses..."

Giphy

When I wear my glasses - that I look like a college professor. That I have a very "teacher-y face".

Usually these days, also that they could have SWORN I was married. In the last 6 months, dozens of people have been legitimately surprised that I am not married. Apparently I seem like I'm married. "You ACT like you're married" they say. I don't know what that means. Might be a nice way of saying old.

That's me: an old, married, straight-laced teacher boy. Definitely. And definitely not a big ol' idiot.

"That I'm..."

That I'm aloof, and possibly somewhat snobby. I'm very shy and fairly emotional.

"That I'm scary."

That I'm scary.

Almost 6ft with dreads.

My GFs parents think I'm a gang banger but I'm reality I'm the complete opposite. Never gotten in a real fight , do good in school, etc.

"In reality..."

Giphy

I'm a foreign immigrant coming from some really rich country in West Asia who speaks English really well.

In reality, I'm just a Filipino who can speak English. Take that, Karen.

"That I need a lot of assistance..."

That I need a lot of assistance all the time. While I am physically crippled due to congenital reasons, I am more than capable to taking care of myself with minimal assistance most of the time.

Natasha Ryce made the mistake of leaving her car window all the way down while visiting her parents in Hemingway, South Carolina.

Unlike the usual outcome of that particular mistake, however, her car didn't end up full of rain.

When her daughter came out and checked the car, it was full of cats!

Fourteen fraternities at San Diego State University have been suspended after the tragic passing of a Freshman student.

Dylan Hernandez, 19, died on November 10, 2019, after attending a fraternity event, and the university believes that "possible misconduct" by the frat house is to blame.

As reported by the school's newspaper, The Daily Aztec, SDSU president Adela de la Torre confirmed Hernandez's death in an email that was sent out to the university community on Sunday.

De la Torre has also urged students to contact the University Police Department with any information they may have.

Fellow students told FOX 5 San Diego that Hernandez was "really out of it" when he returned to his dorm room on the sixth floor of the Tenochca Residence Hall on Wednesday night. They stated he may have "partied too much" at the fraternity event he attended.

SDSU Freshman Piper Grant told FOX 5 San Diego:

"He seemed fine, he was talking and everything. And then, they came in at 8 in the morning, and that's when it went downhill."

Other students told CNN said that Hernandez "fell out of his bunk bed" while asleep, and that he was foaming at the mouth by the morning.

A fundraiser in memory of Hernandez has been set up on GoFundMe.

Wrote the fundraiser's organizer, Carly Bernarndo:

"Dylan was an outgoing, light hearted and goofy person who had so much love to give to everyone he met."
"He never failed to make everyone in the room smile and his laugh was infectious... This is being created to raise money to help to create memorials for family and friends as a way to grieve, and remember Dylan for all the lives he was able to touch."

People on Twitter are commending the university's decision and hoping that it will lead to changes in college hazing and party culture.





The proceeds for Dylan Hernandez's GoFundMe will be used towards funeral and memorial services. You can donate here.
