Okay so I"m certain many civilization have actually checked out this take place before and it tends to happen supposedly intentionally, in even more of a way to seem comical, but here is the instance for what I am talking about:

"You do not desire to over-seakid the fish at all now..." -covers the entire bowl via seasoning- "Albest now we"ll seaboy the other side. Just remember to not seakid it too much now..." -pretty much uses an entire bottle of seasoning-

So the initially word I thought for this would be a "hypocrite", however I don"t think it would accurately define the situation here. To me, a hypocrite is even more of this:

"Stop smacking while eating dude that"s annoying." -smacks loudly while eating-

Sorry if this does not make any kind of feeling, but I was just wondering if there was another word (preferably a noun) that even more accurately defines the initially instance.

You are watching: When you tell someone not to do something and they do it

contradictory (Wiktionary) 3. That is diametrically opposed to something.

A widespread idiom that defines the scenario defined by the OP would certainly be:practise what you preach

e.g. That TV cook"s advice is inconsistent, he does not practise what he preaches

It could additionally be referred to as double standards: someone tells you not to execute something, then does that thing or enables others to carry out it.

My boss told me not to eat at the desk, then walked directly past my co-worker that was eating at his desk, without any type of complaints may I include. She really has double criteria.
