Complimentary Compliments

Compliments can sometimes be hard to accept, even more so when men get their feet jammed sideways in their mouths. I know they’re trying to make us feel good about ourselves, but somehow they don’t get it quite right.

A few weeks ago, one girl friend told me of a text she got:

You’re not exactly rough are you…

And, whilst on holiday, I got this gem:

You’ve never really been flabby…

Oh, my! Thank you! I’ve been waiting to hear that my whole life.

Has anyone else got any classic hole-digging quotes?

    Well, I’ve just been out to get a sandwich, went to the same place I go every day and the lass said “You look smart today”. That was nice of her, but is she trying to tell me every other time she’s seen me I look like a tramp??? Probably.

    That seems like a typical female response to a genuine compliment :)

    Totally know where thats coming from, the other day someone at work told me I was looking smart, I must have worn the same shirt/tie combination laods of times, why say it now? Do I usually come in covered in cow crap?

    Now this is just wrong! Today I’m wearing a black shirt and dark blue tie, I’m looking smart, smarter than yesterday. I went to the sandwich shop again, did she tell me I looked smart? No! Although, she did say she liked my beard, so I guess I’ll forgive her… maybe.

    the only person who ever tells me i look good/smart is me. my missus only comments when she thinks i look shit. cheers love.

    I would agree with it sounding like I had an admirer, except she has a ring on her engagement finger with a rock the size of a basket ball.
