    "I'll do it on your advice."

    A: I have one suggestion for you to earn that title. Lose the pocket protector.
    You look like a geek!

    B: Hey, I love my pocket protector! But I'll do it on your advice and see what happens.


    I know it means like 'I'll follow your advice' but am not sure what 'do on... something' means.

    Help?

    re: "I'll do it on your advice."

    I want to add tag of [idioms]. How do I do that? Should I delete this thread and rewrite?

    I have done the tag for you. I'm not sure, but I don't think it's possible for a user to amend the tag after posting. It seems to be possible only for moderators and administrators.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
