Default People have no idea how to compliment!

A guy came into my job today and said " I like your hair. It looks like a mop. I really like it." I was flattered but confused. People don't seem to be able to pay a compliment without there being something random added in. He was bald so I replied to him " I like your hair, I just wish there was more of it." I don't think he knew what to say after that.

I'm frequently told that I have beautiful hair then in the next breath I'm told that I have so much hair for such a tiny face.

ROFL! I love your comeback.

Men are really dumb when it comes to things like that. One of my guy friends once told a girl friend she had beefy calves. He couldn't understand for the life of him why she was insulted. He thought it was a good thing. As long as the compliment is well-intentioned, I think we should cut the guys some slack. It's not their fault they're completely clueless.

Oh my word, that is hilarious! I would have been irked but I can understand why a guy would think that's a good thing.

LOL! Wouldn't all women love to have beefy calves? I guess it would be a compliment from one guy to another.

For example: "Larry your calves looked especially beefy when you ran for that touchdown."

Yep I got a good one a few months back I had straightened my hair so I could touch up my roots the following day I got this semi compliment:
"Wow you look really plain with straight hair" I know that it was a compliment to my curls but it came out a bit awkwardly LOL
