A few years ago, several people I met kept telling me I looked like Angelina Jolie...at first I shrugged it off like nah...just rocking the sleek pony tail so it reminds them of Tomb Raider...then it kept happening...to this day I am still like NO WAY do I look like Angelina Jolie!
The best compliments I receive now are the comments I get on my writing style and my blog. I love to hear when people love my blog...not to be vain, but as reassurance that people get me and my blog and like it. It gives me hope that one day (when I have
experience courage to ever try to get published a magazine editor so where out there will get it and love it too). Even though I love to hear it ... I still get a little "ahhhhh shucks" when I read it. =)
I think the worst "compliment" has to be..."when is your baby due" and the woman is not pregnant. I had this happen to me from an old lady behind the deli counter...I literally cried...she apologized...I cried and left the store in embarrassment. They are called leggings and a high wasted dress!! In the car, I tried to soothe my thoughts of never eating again with remembering that my friend (100 pounds) was asked the same thing repeatedly when wearing something similar. I just hope my reaction (i.e. meltdown of tears) made that old lady recognize that - THAT question is NEVER appropriate!
What's the best compliment you ever received?
Do you accept compliments or shrug them off?
Have you ever received a not so nice "compliment"?
How did you react?
