I don't get it...
Sometimes I just don't get it. People ask for advice. Ok, that I can understand, being one to often ask for input from others before making a decision myself. But people who ask for advice and then get upset when the advice given isn't what they wanted to hear just irritate the living daylights out of me. I mean, seriously. Just because advice is given doesn't mean you have to take it, does it? It also doesn't mean that the person giving the advice will hate you forever and scribble out your face in the yearbook if you disregard what they have to say. At least that tends to be the case when you're dealing with adults, rather than 30+-year-old high-school-wannabes.
But don't chew a person out for giving advice when YOU ASKED FOR IT! The situation stinks. Sure. That doesn't give anyone license to treat others like crap, though. We all have our tough situations in life. Suck it up and deal with it like the rest of the world. And if you aren't prepared to hear ALL of the answers, don't ask for advice.
