When someone (usually a parent) tells you a story about how they used to complete a task that is almost exactly like one you have to do when they were your age in order to get you to perform your task the same way. They do not say it is advice - they just tell you the story and leave it at that.
Person 1: I'm doing bad in this class. The homework's so hard.
Person 2: I know, just last night my mom was giving me story advice about her old study methods. It's so annoying when she does that.
