Useless Advice

Tue Nov 07, 2006 6:16 am

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?

Quoting 9V (Thread starter):

A guy on the train today asked me.... "How do I get to the Humber Bridge, when I arrive in Hull?"

I replied "You'll need to get a taxi"

He thought I was takin the piss  sarcastic

Ive been stopped by motorists before asking directions to a nearby town, and for some reason I have that town and another local one mixed up mentally so I give directions to the second town.

Thats got to really piss some of those drivers off.
