Have you ever been in a situation where you are talking to someone about something in a small group?  You give one of the people in the group advice; they look at you as if you are some looney. A few minutes later someone else says the same thing you just said to the same person you said it to and all of a sudden it is the greatest advise that person has heard in a long time.   I know this happens a lot to other people.  In life I guess there are people that we really listen to and others that we don’t.  I don’t know if that has to do with lack of respect, credibility, social attributes, hierarchy, or what.  But the out come is always the same it sure leaves the original person who made the suggestion feeling pretty low.
