Looking for a Chinese phrase for someone who will not listen to good advice
There is a German saying: "Wer nicht hören will muss fühlen." I don't know a good equivalent in English
Literally, word for word it says: "Who not hear/listen want must feel"
It means, if you won't listen to good advice, you may run into problems.
A German guy arrived in China. I told him to go straight to the visa office and complete the formalities, as he only had a temporary visa. He would not listen. He said my visa is good for 3 months. But, after landing in China, he only had 30 days to complete this. He went 20 days too late and was fined 500 RMB for each day late!
