Margaret was probably shocked to discover that metal paperclips can conduct electricity. The general takeaway from this should be “if it’s not a plug, don’t stick it into a light socket.” It seems pretty simple, but unfortunately, there are people out there who will try to convince you otherwise.
If Margaret isn’t still in shock from the awful advice she received, she should keep paperclips on paper and out of electricity’s way.
Hold It In
We can all agree that medical advice should only come from licensed professionals. This is especially true when it comes to any laxative guidance. The cure for a cough should not be an attempt to cover it up. Instead, it should be a medication that targets the cause.
Just remember that there are bodily reactions, sometimes induced by laxatives, that are far worse than a cough. You don't need to go to such extremes. The only thing that Michael should take is a trip to the doctor.
Mother doesn't always know best. Date films should be filled with romance and not break-ups. It doesn't exactly set an optimistic tone for the future. Sam's mother-in-law was definitely doing her best to put her daughter's new beau to the test with this piece of advice.
Luckily, it seems Sam conquered his mother-in-law's challenges and eventually got married to his sweetheart. Hopefully, there's no breakup in sight.
Bat Your Lashes
Don't pluck your eyelashes! They won't grow longer, they'll just take longer to grow.
Why, Melanie, why? There are a plethora of ways to extend your lashes without any plucking involved! She could've tried rubbing her lashes with coconut oil, using a lengthening mascara, or getting false lashes! We hope Melanie's eyelashes are back in action and ready to bat away.
Driving Under the Influence
Getting driving lessons from your parents is a right of passage. While each parent may have their own special driving tips to bestow on their children, this tip doesn't seem road-worthy.
The first piece of advice from any driving instructor, be it your parent or a paid professional, ought to be to keep your eyes on the road at all times. You won't get 'hypnotized' by the road, instead, you'll keep yourself and other drivers safe and sound.
