It annoys me when people give me advice that I dont want
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 12:05:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
It totally annoys me when people don't listen to me. I really don't like saying I told you so when it could have been avoided if they would only listen to me.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 12:11:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Just because I gave advice doesn't mean a person has to follow it.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 12:26:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sometimes. If they want to do something other than what I advised them, go for it!
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 12:55:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah. The people who I give advice to that don't take it always end up taking someone elses advice and they always end up in terrible situations.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 1:16:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but I hate when they ask me for it all the time and never follow it.

Yupp. Yupp. Yupp... *nodds* EXACTLY. That annoys me too.

Not at all.

If advice was any good, we wouldn't give it away.

If I give them advice without them asking, they have every right to reject it, so no.
But I hate it when people insit on me giving them honest advice (because they "value my opinion") which they then ignore/disregard because it turned out not to be what they wanted to hear.

A wise man doesn't need advice and a fool won't take it.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 2:38:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not really. It's their life to do with as they wish. It's kind of annoying when they ask and then totally disregard it everytime, and then come back and complain to you though.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 2:39:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
Eh, I'm used to it now.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 3:56:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
It depends how they reject it. Something like just saying "No thanks" or "I don't think that's such a good idea" I don't care about, but not responding at all would definitely annoy me. Because it's silence, and makes it look like they're not even listening. I hate it when I'm talking and the other person just sits there.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 7:24:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
That woman on the right annoys me.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 7:26:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Usually it dosn't bother me, but under specific circumstances it might.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 7:57:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, sometimes.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 7:58:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
No it doesn't. I try to help and if they don't take my advice there's nothing I can do about that.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 8:01:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I bother to give advice, it's because I feel like I have good advice and room to give it. If I feel like they don't understand that about me and don't even listen to my advice, yes, I get annoyed.
Provided I feel like they consider it, though, I am fine with someone not taking my advice.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 9:50:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I never expect people to take my advice.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 10:16:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, because nothing I can ever do for that person would be good enough.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/10/06 - 10:19:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope...it is up to that person to either listen or pay no ears to it!
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 9:52:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. I know for a fact that I'm not always right. I know sometimes other people have better ideas. It's their perogative, whether it turns out to be the right move or not.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 12:29:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes...it bugs me to death,
but i do get to sit there and go i told ya so!!
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 5:06:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Never give advice, you're wasting your breath and your time.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 5:45:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
not really... everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I believe in ppl and that they can make the best decisions by themselves
