Daily Prompt: Take It From Me

Today’s daily prompt is called Take It From Me and it asks;

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve given someone that you failed to take yourself?

I don’t give advice, it just get’s messy and I don’t like to get that involved in people’s life. Also it deprives me of watching someone fail and that’s always hilarious. On the plus side it means I can learn from their failure and avoid it myself. It’s a win-win for me to be honest.

I am of course joking. Well sort of. But most advice is so simple and so obvious that it’s actually annoying to be told it. It doesn’t come across as helpful, it comes across as smug, it makes you look like a dick, and that’s never good.
