I dont know what reminded me of this, but years later I still think its hilarious.
I was at work and an old coworker randomly grabbed my hand, and says, “wow! You have really nice cuticles!” I was just like “uh.. thanks!” Haha. I’ve never been into nail care and never never once used any cuticle remover or pushed them back or anything, so I was just like “people really pay attention to that?!”
The worst compliment I ever got was also at work, but was by a customer. Me and another female were working together, and this guy comes in and goes “Mmm mmm, put your body (the other girls) with her face (my face) and you got the perfect woman,” and then he proceeded to try to flirt with us. Me and the other coworker just wanted to punch him. Like you just paid both of us a compliment, while also insulting us, good job!
Share yours! (Also, hope everyone is having a good turkey day, or non turkey!)

A customer once told me that I looked like ” a pretty Tracey Ullman”. I mean, she’s a great comedian- but I was thinking – which character of hers are you thinking of?

allyfally: Since I was about 14 people randomly compliment me on my walk. Apparently, I have a poised/refined walk. It makes no sense to me because I put one foot in front of the other like everyone else in the world. I also get a compliment on my “complexion” all the time. I’m not sure what that even means but I find it self contained to ask someone to explain a compliment.

allyfally: Someone once told me I look like a pre-Raphaelite painting, I didn’t know what that meant at the time but when I googled pre-raphaelite paintings I was quite flattered

People have told me I look like the main girl from Napolean Dynamite. This is weird because I’m not even white. Also, kind of insulting because from my own perspective of beauty, I don’t find that a compliment.

I have a really, really round butt and I get family/friends/coworkers [females] talking about it. My favorite is when they say, “it’s so big, but in a good way”.

eeniebeans: I have no idea who she is, but I just looked her up and have to say, I think she’s already pretty, so if you’re a pretty version of her, then you must be dang good looking!
Soladylike: Haha, I wish I got the walking compliment! I’m so clumsy, I envy people who are light on their feet and naturally graceful. I’ve also gotten compliments on my skin color, which I find strange because its usually from tan people, and I’m super pale.
spink75: I’d be flattered as well!
PumpkinPie-PeachyKeen: I’ve never watched that, so I have no idea who you’re talking about. Sorry you dont find it flattering though!
jenilynevette: lol! My butt is super flat, so I have no experience with that. 😛

Hmm I can only think of when I was heading to my internship, getting out of my car, and one of my co-workers just asked me if I dyed my hair, I didn’t, then she said that I had nice shiny hair… It was just so random but nice! and some friend told me she thought I looked like Tina Fey but I’m not sure if it was just a random observation or a compliment… ? The way she said it, it wasn’t really clear lol…

GUYS would say they liked my eyebrows. So random. One time a guy said it across the classroom, which made everyone look at me. Not good for the shy me haha!

About 4 or 5 years ago I was told by a work colleague who had been promoted to a new department in my building that she’d been warned I was, and I quote… “notoriously unfriendly” but she was so happy to find “that’s simply untrue”.
Wow, thanks love! Plus, my sister just recently forwarded me a tongue in cheek article about the condition know as Resting Bitch Face telling me I’m a sufferer. I did laugh at that though. I’m popular.

HappySideUp: Now I really want to know what your eyebrows look like. Haha.

A random customer at work told me I had the “sexiest radio voice.” I told him I had laryngitis. He proceeded to ask if I smoked and told me I should apply to a nightime radio station. I again told him I was SICK, but he didn’t seem to get it.
I also had a guy tell me that if he ever met a woman with hair naturally the colour of mine, he would marry her. Somewhat horrified, I decided not to tell him that I did not colour my hair.

echomomm: Oh my gosh, that reminded me of another “compliment.” Most people tell me that I have a cute little kids voice (I seriously sound like I’m 8.) And then came this comment “you have a great voice for a sex phone hotline!” What?! A kids voice is good for a sex hotline?!
Haha, what’s your hair color?

Ew, the sex phone hotline comment about a child-like voice is rather twisted, isn’t it?
My hair is just a deep auburn, showing more red in the sun. I’ve never found it to be particularly unusual.

echomomm: Exactly! What’s even worse is after she said that, everyone started agreeing with her!
lol, Thats my color as well! Well its more of a medium light, but its definitely brownish red. In the sunlight it looks copper.
