I think this must be Unsolicited Advice week.
I'm getting it from everyone. And it ranges, from all people, of all ages...
"You really shouldn't be wearing yellow."
"You should NEVER turn your back but TRY to maintain a relaxed demeanor."
"Don't drop you phone. Its bad for you phone. (yes they said "you" not "your)
"Don't read that book. Read this one."
"Maybe you should apply for 'peppier' jobs."
"It's hard. You just need to be thick skinned."
The list goes on and on and becomes increasingly more insulting and more ridiculous. I don't need people to point out the obvious, but for some reason, they insist on doing it anyway.
While I would never turn away really good, solid, helpful if you insist on advising me on the obvious, I just ask that you at least have the common courtesy to be creative and use proper English.
