Is there something that people consistently get "wrong" about you?

Asked by DigitalBlue (6658 points ) December 27th, 2012

Christmas has just passed, and I’ve noticed over the years that people often buy me pink things. Probably because I’m female, but I don’t even like pink and I never have.
I got pink shoes, a pink robe, some pink gloves, my husband even bought me a sweatshirt with the breast cancer ribbon campaign trim on it… because “it was the only one they had that was pink.”

I don’t mind, of course, I just think it’s bizarre that it happens so often. There have to be other, maybe better, examples of this sort of thing. Are there persistent misconceptions about you or the things that you like that just won’t seem to go away?
