Not always as things seem to be

This picture came in email this week - I can't remember who sent it now, and I have no way of attributing the arrtist. But have a look at this picture and try to guess what these kid's mum does for a living. Bit of a give-away huh? The people offering money, the long haired woman, the pole. Wonder what she does for a job - and if this is part-time or perhaps her day job?

Actually, the lady works in a large hardware store, and one of her children drew this picture for school, of mum selling garden shovels.

Makes me think about just how many times we do judge a book by its cover, people by what our incomplete information is telling us.
