Câu trả lời:

Just recently one of my close friends decided to quit a job after an argument with some colleague. And what’s more, he was determined to do it as soon as possible.

To be honest, I didn’t want to interfere and tell my friend what I thought about his idea ’cause giving advice to people who don’t ask for it just doesn’t work. Also, I’m sure people should make their own mistakes and learn their own lessons. But I realized that this would impact his life significantly, so I just couldn’t keep my mouth shut.

I advised my friend not to make emotional decisions. I said that I didn’t think it was wise to quit a job without another one lined up because this would entail uncertainty and having no income for an indefinite period of time.

To my regret, my friend didn’t listen to me as he is too stubborn to listen to anybody’s advice. A few days later, he resigned. And a few months after that he called me to borrow some money because he was still looking for a job.
