Have you ever met someone who calls them an expert, but the advice they give is no good?
Or how about this, have you ever met someone who gives the "illusion" that they know it all, but really they don't know diddly?
They may give there opinion as if it's a fact, meaning they feel their word is THE word. With nothing to back it up with. No life testimony, no facts, no statistics, nothing...and when you try to disagree with them, they become offended. Giving an opinion is okay, state it as that.
Maybe you've been through something, and they pride themselves is being able to help you, they strut around like they know it all, but really. they don't. >= ( Giving advice is also cool
Why I'm asking/ranting? Because I've just went through a situation like this and I just wonder, how do you, personally handle this situation?
Does having the rank/name/ position of "expert" brainwash someone into thinking they're perfect? Does it give them the air of being "all knowing?"
Whether it be on the phone, through a website, or in real life, is doesn't seem to matter.
These "experts" can be Website creators, doctors, lawyers, cops,CEO's, etc.
Do you ignore them?
Do you leave?
Do you call them out on it?
Do you want to punch them in the face?
Give me some of your own personal examples, stories, how you feel,etc.
You don't have to tell me who they are if you don't want to.
If there's anything in missed, let me know.

I had a hard time picking between A,B or C.
There is no such thing as a "fashion" expert. I also hate food and art critics...I remember on some ABC show they pretty much exposed the fraud of these experts.
They took these art experts and had them describe what era the paintings came from and how they would describe the artist...only to be told later that many of the paintings were done by a 3 year old.
Another is this snobbish Washinngton Post food critic who actually has a snobbish, elitist voice giving 2 or 1.5 out of 4 stars just because "...the food did not have the elegance of rigor." WTF is he talking about?!
Those are my 3 most hated "experts". Just another excuse for a job. I'll go to Yelp if I want opinions...because opinions don't make you an expert.0
