Bittersweet Schadenfreude

I love saying “I told you so” but I try not to – despite my incredibly strong urge to rub it right into one’s face. Because nobody likes being told. We didn’t like it as kids and neither do we appreciate it as adults.

Advice is best to be passed on

At least that’s what Oscar Wilde would have said. And since we all know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, I should’t even expect someone to feel obligated to take my advice. But don’t we all have that one person in our lives that keeps coming back for advice – only then to do the exact opposite thing?

Thus sometimes I wonder who might be more aggravated – the person who seemingly gave advice in vain or the person who so (un)skilfully chose to to ignore that very same suggestion. What do you think? 😉
