    tell you what to do = ambigious?

    Hi,

    'I don't tell you what to do.'

    I'd like to ask if the above sentence could have two meanings depending on the context:

    1- I don't tell you what you should do.
    2- I don't tell you what I should do.

    Could the second one really be possible?

    Thanks.

    No.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
