I had a vendor offer to fly me to Las Vegas so we could meet in person because he liked my “sexy phone voice”. Okaaaaay….

I met my husband’s cousins and their families last week (we flew half-way across the US and surprised them) and as we went around the table stating what we are thankful for, one of the cousins said “I’m thankful for cousin R and his wife joining us” at which point one of the kids yelled out “She’s HOT!” Umm, not what I want my husband’s cousin’s kid thinking about me during Thanksgiving dinner.

One time when I was dropping my daughter at preschool a dad came up to me and said my hair looked really good. I have curly hair an had straightened it. I didn’t know what to say and he noticed and said sorry and got into his car. It was really odd.

Okay, so I had to revive this thread. I work with the sweetest girl. I know what she told me was not meant to be anything other than a compliment. She says to me  “You know what you remind me of? You remind of a cabbage patch kid! You have such flawless skin!” O_o

She couldn’t have said a porcelain doll?! That would have made my day!

So instead of this:

I’m this?

When I worked at Safeway, a customer came up to me and told me I had pretty lips. It was a woman in her fifties and she looked as if she hadn’t planed to say it haha it was very awkward afterwards.

Gosh I have gotten so many strange compliments in my life! I once had a flight attendant proclaim over intercom that I look like Adrian from Rocky. He then yelled “yo Adrian” a bunch of times and spoke to me in a Rocky impersonation for the rest of the flight. It was super awkward lol. 

Another weird one, I worked for a christmas show this past holiday season and can’t count the amount of times truck drivers called me a little elf. Yes, I’m short and have pink hair, but I was so surprised how many people said it. When the first driver showed up to the shop I work at and called me an elf, my boss was like, this is gonna be your life for the next three months and he was right lol.

I’ve had a few weird ones. I had a client tell me “Your hands are so pretty and dainty, they look like mannequin hands!” I’m not crazy into nail care either and my nails were so chipped and gross that day I was immediately self concious haha

Another one was from a client. We were having a fantastic conversation and she decided to ask me what my sign was. As soon as I said Gemini she said “eugh, well at least you’re pretty”. Ummmmmm, thank you?

I just had to comment on this one..

A friend of a friend of the family was giggling and talking to a few other people while looking at me. I was already feeling slightly insecure and then one of the girls says “just ask her!” 

So I walk up and say “ask me what?”

she says “Is your butt real? It looks so perky like you’re wearing butt pads!!”

Ummm.. yes..thanks -.- So embarrassing.

My DH’s best friend the first time he met me:  “You’re prettier than I thought you’d be.”

Though it’s a backhanded compliment and not quite in the spirit of this thread, I just had to share.

He’s kind of a douchebag; even DH agrees.

Birchcanoe:  Maybe all of the truckers conspired to call you an elf!  😉  I’m sure it’s not all purely need to know information over those radios.

When I was skinny and wearing a belly top a girl moaned about my perfect stomach and asked me how I got it. I was like, ‘I go to the gym five times a week every week.’ She sort of looked disappointed for a split second and then said, ‘oh never mind. I don’t care that much.’ Now I have curves instead of abs and I actually prefer them! Never ever thought I would say that. As a former gym obsessive.

Ooh, I have a worse one. When I was ten at a school disco one of the dads approached me and started telling me I was a really good dancer, putting his hands on my shoulders and basically telling me I was the mini JLo. This was Hallowe’en and I was dressed as a vampire in leather jeans and Gothic but child appropriate make up. Now, I got kicked out of ballet class earlier that year after being told I had all the grace of a baby elephant. In no way was I a good dancer. My DH thinks my dancing is hilariously awful and bad. So basically ten year old me got hit on by a dad at a kiddies disco, max age twelve. . .luckily my parents always came to supervise my crazy lil brother so my dad noticed and quickly interrupted. Creeeeepy. I was in awe though. First and only time in my life someone told me I was a good dancer!!

My Fiance and I were sharing the train to the airport one day with a chatty airline pilot. He said I looked like a Kardashian. We must have looked horrified because he claims it’s a compliment because he likes the Kardashians and think sthey’re cute. Weird thing to say, esp when I’m next to Fiance, but also because I’m the most bookish girl ever. I don’t have anything in common with that reality TV family!
