i never got any bad advise
9/3/2015 02:49:42 am
I have never have gotten bad advice so I don't know what to say about it.
9/3/2015 02:59:57 am
The advice I have gotten was arguable so I can't say It was bad advice.

I believe the worst advice I've ever gotten was to quit school and work in the fields, which was given to me by a drunk relative at a party. My being here proves I did not follow this advie.
9/3/2015 03:03:00 am
Yes, but I did not took the advice because I know it would harm me. The advice was bad because it has to do something that I know it will cause cancer.

I can't recall any bad advice that was given to me, but one advice that I found to be unhelpful was when a person told me to show no emotion and no weakness, but I'm only human.

The worst and best advice that I ever got for someone was "just do it". Sometimes it is best to just do it however sometimes doing that won't help because you don't know what you're doing. So I think of it like this, if I can think it then I can do it.

The worst advice I've ever been given was when my cousin said that the ramp he made out of a clothes hamper and a peace of plywood would hold. It was the worst advice because the second time i went off the ramp I tried to do a back flip but a third of the way up the ramp as i was leaning back the clothes hamper broke and instead of doing a back flip i launched about 6-7 feet in the air and stopped halfway into the flip and landed face first but i tried to stop myself with my arms and ended up breaking my right arm and I had to wear a cast for a long time

The worst advice I ever got was from the guy at the music store. He told me that the guitar I picked was a good one and that I should buy it. It turned out to be a cheap guitar for little kids. I still have that guitar, but I don't like it.

The worst advice I have ever received is when I was going to work as a Dj near San Francisco in a little Island. Someone told me to trust Google Maps directions. I followed them, but when I got there I found out that the ferry that we were supposed to take didn't existed anymore it had a different location that google maps didn't showed at all.

The worst advice I have EVER received was probably to drive with someone who was "buzzed" so I wouldn't get in trouble with my mom. It was my only ride home and I knew if I wasn't home before my mom realized I was a goner. Of course the guy had a little too much to drink and I wasn't sure whether to take a chance because either way I'd end up hurt. My mom realizing I was gone she'd kill me, the guy could also do the same because he was drinking. My ex friend kept telling me we should just go so we'd get home but who needs a friend that's trying to get you killed?

I suppose the worst advice I ever received was "Be yourself". One evening, I was walking on the sidewalk in the downtown area with my mother and we saw a poster of Taylor Lautner with the phrase "Just be yourself" in quotations on it stapled to a lamppost. My mother looked at me and said overbearingly: "See? That's all you need to do to be happy. I thought it was an unnecessary remark, especially since the advice given was somewhat cliche and wasn't that insightful. Also, the reason why I didn't like it and never served me useful is due to the fact that the advice wasn't well thought out: what if I'm a serial killer or a rapist? Should I be myself then? Of course not, that's absurd.

I don't remember receiving any bad advice, I'm usually really careful with the information I accept. Actually, People have told me to not worry about my current task and put it off for later. I have procrastinated till the due date. This was bad advice because I had a small amount of time to complete the task.
9/3/2015 05:56:25 am
The worst advice that I had receive was, "It's alright to make mistakes." Although the phrase doesn't clearly define itself, I know that it was alright to make and I shouldn't be worry much about the consequence. Like, it's alright to make mistakes right? But no, my consequence for making a simple mistake set me back a year of work. I had failed my class because I thought it was alright to make mistake.
9/3/2015 05:57:06 am
I believe that the worst advice that was given to me was "Relax and don't try so hard," Because it made me a bit lazy and soon after not trying anymore, I wasn't getting anywhere. My grades were starting to fall and I wasn't as serious as I used to be. I had to change everything about my personality and have to pay more attention and try harder rather than try nothing at all and get no where.

If I got an bad advise I'd try to use another or find another to use instead of the one that they gave me. But, if the advise was about something else that was useable.
9/3/2015 05:59:24 am
I have never received any bad advice that I can remember. Oh I've probably received some at some point in time but I can't remember any.

The worst advice that I have ever taken was to just let the meat sit and cook. I took the advice and didn't care to pay attention to it. Before I know it, the meat was burnt and inedible. Next time, I will check the food to my liking just so it doesn't happen again.
9/3/2015 06:42:39 am
I have gotten bad advice from lots of people some are if there is a problem between me and someone else some friends will say go and fight him then I usually don't follow the advice because I know it'll lead to more trouble.

The worst advice I've ever received is when I was first starting high school, and I asked my brother for advice on how to do well. He told me that all I had to do was show up and listen and all would go well. The advice wasn't very helpful at all, I didn't know where to go or what to do. I ended up getting lost almost immediately. At least I was able to find everything okay afterwards.
One advice I have gotten and followed was "just do it." My uncle, a few others, and I were in downtown San Jose during Vietnamese New Year. We were walking around and people were getting rough and drunk. It's a celebration and one person threw a fire cracker at me and it popped on my clean white shirt. My uncle told me,"no, Don't let that slide." I said," fade it?" and My uncle replied," just do it." and It ended up into a big brawl and we got in trouble from the police. End of the day I ended up going home and getting lectured. I don't regret anything anymore becuase I look back at it and laugh.
I think that the worst advice I gotten was to not go to school and just work. People have told me that going to school is a waist of time. That if I were to just quit school that I can make good money in the fields or at a store. But, what those people don't understand is if I quit school I would eventually have to come back and get my education. I'd have to pay for the education that I could've gotten for free. I will have to go back to school to make a living, sure if I quit school I could make a living as a teen that lives at home. A teen that doesn't pay bills or has responsibilites. But, as an adult you do have bills and a boatload of responsibilties. I didn't take the advice because I see school as an investment I have to make to be the best.

I have received bad advice but I haven't necessarily followed it.
9/3/2015 06:51:58 am
The worst advice I have ever received is to keep my mouth shut when I disagree with something. I used to follow the advice when I was a kid but I no longer do that. It was bad advice because I should not have to quiet my opinion to make anyone else feel better.
9/3/2015 02:12:17 pm
The worse advice I gotten was "just do it' because that always turns out to get you in a situation where you get in trouble for risking it and "just doing it ".
9/3/2015 04:22:32 pm
I have never received bad advice that i could remember, but if i would ever receive bad advice i would not listen to that person. That bad advice could lead me into getting into serious problems and something i can regret later on in life.

The worst advice I've ever received was someone telling me to "Lose your attitude.". Most of the time I do not follow this advice unless it's my mom telling me. This advice was bad because if I lost my attitude I would no longer be myself. My attitude is a big part of my personality. If people don't like my attitude I'm not going to be FAKE and change myself so they will accept me. I will just go find friends like Caitlyn who love and accept me for me!
9/3/2015 05:10:26 pm
I suppose the worse advice I ever received is from myself when I was younger. When I followed my own advice, I then realized I made a terrible decision. However, today I am glad that I have grown so much mentally and learned from my mistakes.
The worst advice I have ever received has to be when I was told to not say anything when the right thing was to say something or take action. It does not have anything to do with secrets but it does have to do with saying something to take an act on what I feel is incorrect because if nobody says anything or takes action, then whatever is happening will continue as well as perhaps becoming worse in the future.
9/3/2015 06:06:13 pm
The worst advice I've ever gotten probably when my cousin said that you should only speak if it's something relevant. First of all, it's human nature to speak, relevant or not, and I really took offense to it. Naturally, I did not follow his advice and I glad I didn't. It WAS bad advice because telling others to keep their mouths shut will typically urge them to want to speak more, so there's really no point in doing so.
9/3/2015 06:23:45 pm
The worst advice anyone has ever given me was when I was in 8th grade. I didn't study for a test for my english class, I told my friend about it and she said she had already taken the test and that she hadn't studied either. She told me she had gotten a hold of the answers and that I should just take them so I could get a good grade on the test. I was foolish enough to take her advice and ended up getting caught and a big fat F on my test. This was very bad advice because the easy way is never the way to go about things.
9/3/2015 07:09:37 pm
I worst advice I have ever received was to keep my mouth shut, whenever I kept my mouth shut there would be situations where I feel like I have lost. Instead of speaking out and keeping my mouth shut to make the opposing feel better and to shut them up Instead I won't hold back anymore. I am a passive person, I don't like to cause war and chaos and drama. I always keep my mouth shut or just not adding in the other piece of info so stupid drama wouldn't continue on. Sometimes it feels good to win rather than lose an argument. Im not going to be an opinionated and argumentative jackass but I certainly will not keep my mouth shut if something needs to be said, I am tired of being told "Don't say anything it will just cause more drama". Nothing ever gets solved but instead the opposing person wins and gets the self satisfactory of wining the argument.

What is the worst advice you ever received? Did you follow the advice? In retrospect, why was the advice bad?
9/3/2015 08:55:31 pm
I don't think anyone has given me bad advice it's actually good advice that I don't take sometimes and I give people advice that I should follow.
The worst advice that I have received was to not do nothing my Freshman year. As 8th grader many people told me that I didn't have to worry about my first year of high school until the my second year, but they wrong, and so was I. I didn't do my work never did my homework and mostly never paid attention in class. So when I was a Sophomore everything change every grade as a high school student does count.
9/3/2015 09:21:41 pm
The worst advice I have ever received was to spend all my money that I got from working leisurely. I did not follow this advice because I knew in the long run I would need that money for a car, college, and emergencies. This was bad advice because if I spent all my money on things that I wanted I would get bored of them and my money would be gone in a flash.

The worst advice ive been given is to go in the car with a "buzzed" driver. Although I didn't take their advice, it has to be the most idiotic idea/advice. It's never smart drive after having a couple drinks and to get into a car with someone who had alcohol, anything can happen, either be killed/injured or be that person in the car that killed/injured someone.
9/3/2015 09:56:49 pm
I have actually havent gotten any bad advice. The only real bad advice have had is people telling me where or not to do something.

The worst advice i have received was to quite wrestling for vine pruning. We ended up placing in the top 10 in state but we did not receive the first place award that we could have worked harder to get.

The worst advise that I have ever gotten was, from a friend and we were talking about life. I mentioned tacos because tacos are so amazing in so many ways. She told me to go hand some out to people because I never share my tacos with anyone. Jack n the box tacos specifically. So here I am handing out all kinds of tacos and there was a homeless person that was sleeping, so I just left it on the side of her so I didn't have to wake her. I ended up leaving a camera were I could see her reaction when she sees the taco. When I went to go get the camera to look at the video I noticed that the taco was still there but the homeless person wasn't there. So I went home to look at the video and i'm looking and it was an alien. An alien was eating the taco. Also, the alien went back to jack n the box to get a taco and put it back to look like it was never eaten. The alien was messing with me.
9/5/2015 03:04:55 pm
That was so inspirational though.
I don't think I've ever received bad advice. The reason why is because I don't really ask people a lot for advice. When I do ask for advice though it's usually good advice. I'm honestly that person who likes to give themselves advice because I feel like no one knows me more than I do so I know the advice that I need. Sometimes when I really need to rely on someone else then I'll ask them. I feel like you should really only give people advice if you really understand where they coming from and if you really know their situation so the advice that you give can be reliable to that person. Give advice if only you know for sure that it's going to be good advice.
9/4/2015 06:12:31 pm
I think sharing is caring is a bad advice. It isn't entirely bad, but it is a 50/50 chance. Sometimes I decide to help people out so they should be grateful, but they decide to take it for granted. Next time they don't have my back, but need me to help them again. So I could say that you should only share with those who are truly grateful for your help.
9/4/2015 09:14:51 pm
I might have had bad advice but I don't remember. I do ask for advice a lot but it's because I feel like sometimes what I am doing is not the right thing. I like to sometimes listen to others advice. Sometimes I really don't care. I am that person that think I am always right but I am not really right.
9/5/2015 12:05:25 am
The worst advice i have ever got is my friends told me lie to my dad. My dad give me some money to buy stuff for him,but i used the money when i hang out with my friends.I don't know how to explain to my dad.and my friends just tell me to lie.I did follow the advice.But my dad trust what i said,but i feel guilty after that.I think this advice is bad ,because i shouldn't lie to my dad and it's not worth to cheat someone who loves you.
9/6/2015 02:34:56 pm
The worst advice that I ever got was when I was at the 8th grade a friend of mine gave me some advice saying that I should get a car before I should get a house its not the worst that I ever had but I say this is worse because I think that it's smarter to get a house first before getting a car
9/8/2015 10:01:38 am
The worst advice i have ever received was From my Friend who told me to never worry about tomorrow but really you should worry about tomorrow because what if u spend all your money on a night out an then tomorrow you have no money to pay rent or to buy food to eat. Everyday counts.

The worst advice i have gotten was to drop out of high school because i was already over age and i am horrible in school. Well i obviously didn't drop out of high school thankfully to this school i am still here and i will graduate this year. This was horrible advice because if i had dropped out then who knows what might of been of me without school and since you can't really get a job without a high school diploma i most likely wouldn't have a job right now and probably would be in the streets selling drugs. I can say not dropping out of high school was my best decision because i'm getting a good job thanks to the class Advanced small engines.

The worst advice that anyone has given me is that you need to exercise a lot when trying losing weight but that is false.You can lose weight with just eating calories.It all depends on how many calories you take in and how many calories you burn without exercising.So the advice was bad advice because they merely focused on the exercise but not healthy eating when 10% is exercise and 90% is what you eat.Yes exercising is good but if you eat junk and exercise a ton you won't be losing weight at all.But it isn't all about losing weight it also is about having a better lifestyle.If you eat junk food all the time your energy level is always down and you don't have the proper nutrients for your body.

I think that the worst advice that I have ever gotten was to play volleyball while I had an injury. I thought that this player was insane to tell me this. But then I remembered that I was the only person who could play this position, so I took the advice and played. Not only did I already have a back injury, but that same night I fractured my nose in the middle of the play. I finished the play then ran to the bathroom to try and stop the bleeding. My coach came in begging me to come back out and play she said "just put some toilet paper in there you'll be fine." It was both terrible advice from the player and coach. They wanted me to play the other games after that night. Now my back will forever be messed up.
