What does "be the last person ever to..." mean?

"You really are the last person ever to give anyone advice about happiness."

Hi, Kuen,

I find your sentence awkward. I'd like to remove "ever" and "really" and to use the progressive with the second verb:

  • You're the last person to be giving anyone advice about happiness.

That means that you (or the "you" whom the hypothetical speaker of the sentence is addressing) shouldn't be giving anyone advice about happiness.
