This is a question Useless advice

As a new parent, people seem to think it's OK to pass on any and every old wives tale possible. "Don't hug him too much". What? Quite what possesses people to pass on baseless, idiotic, useless advice I don't know.

That said, I quite often give car drivers directions and then, after they've moved off, realise that I've sent them down a bike-only route, so I can give as good as I get.

What useless advice have you been given (or handed out) recently?

Not quite useless advice....
but very notable.
A sticker seen on the door of a bus.
We also have signs saying "Assaulting a bus driver is a crime." Very depressing to find others need to be told these things.

I haven't heard "Smile, it'll never happen", but I've been told, on occaison, "Do you wanna talk about it? Well, whatever it is, it's sure to get better?" Which really didn't help very much. Because a friend's death just undoes itself.

I once heard one dunce tell her friend. "It's okay, you can't get pregnant the first time right?" "Right, you don't need to worry." Yes, because the ovaries are just going to NOT do their job.
