#BEDM Day 28 - Bad advice

Hi all.

Bad advice, something we've all had at one time or another.

What is the worst advice you have ever received?

I do take on advice but I tend to take it from a variety of people so I can explore a few different viewpoints. After weighing up all advice I usually end up going with my gut, so there's no one to blame but myself!

OK, I can't get off without giving you one example of bad advice I was given. When I was purchasing home insurance for the first time I had no idea you had to go through proper channels to cancel a policy. I was basically harangued into taking out home insurance policy from my husband's bank (he gave them my phone number - cheers for that, dear!!) and after taking advice from a more seasoned friend who said 'Oh, just cancel the other policy!' I just cancelled the other policy, and then ended up with loads of aggressive phone calls from the other company and ended up having to pay a hefty fee for cancelling early. Bummer. Lesson learned! Oopsy.

What bad advice have you been given?

Thanks for reading.
