#1: 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.
