I found my solution, it's really weird but in case someone with the same problem.
To avoid this:
In 3D mode, Home->Selection then you can see gizmo selection types (scale, rotate, move)
Basically the problem I was having is due to selecting the different gizmo then what I intended to do,
so like this: type "rotate" but had "scale" selected in that tab.
This is not gonna work.
Hope it helps anyone like me.
