Wow, I've been doing it wrong.
I give lots of advice, to everyone, sometimes it's unsolicited. Perhaps I should work on this, I never really thought it was a big deal. Of course I'm not rude or pushy but I'll listen to a problem and throw something out there to try and help, I've never pissed anyone off that I'm aware of but who knows.
ETA: Oh my god I'm turning into my mother. ::headdesk::
