What are you like at taking advice from people, friends, government or indeed anyone.
The reason I ask is that people do not like taking advice or don't listen to advice given even when it is from a reliable source or from so called experts.
The recent accidental shooting of the young lad in Thailand is a classic case of not heeding advice from the Government about travelling to that particular Island off the mainland at certain times of the year i.e. Xmas/New Year and the Full Moon festivals due the over indulgence of alcohol and drugs and the gangsters that frequent the Island even more at these times.
The people who have sailed into pirate infested waters after being warned about the dangers, then expect the UK government to get them released.
I do try and listen too advice freely given by someone with the knowledge or expertise, then make an informed decision on whether I take it or not, the recent advice I received about a certain route I wished to take changed my mind about it as I did not wish to put other people in any kind of danger or cause them concern, but if we had been on our own I would have made a different decision, so am I any different from these others, I suspect not as that is why when it all boils down to it everyone makes their own minds up as regard to what they will or will not do.
