A friend of mine once told me that someone said to her, “you look like you’re from another country…”.
And they left it at that…
So my friend was perplexed!
What did that mean? Was it good? Bad?
At the end of the day, she just thought the compliment was WEIRD.
Which brings us to today’s question: what’s the weirdest compliment you ever received?
Here’s what folks on AskReddit had to say about this.
1. Oh my…
“Accidentally shot the speculum back out at my gynecologist and they told me I had impressively strong uterine walls.
2. Gee, thanks.
“You’re very photogenic, but don’t for one minute think that means you’re beautiful.
3. I’ll take it.
“I was queuing at a food shop and the guy behind me whispered to his partner/friend while pointing at me “Oooohhh look at me, all rugged and handsome”.
It was weird because it sounded like he was trying to insult me.”
4. Stay away.
“Sniffed me pretty aggressively “you smell good”.
She then proceeded to tell me the name of my fragrance.
Idk why but it weirded me out.”
5. Don’t say that.
““I love your hairs. It comes off so easily”
I was getting a Brazilian wax.”
6. Back up slowly…
“I work with the public and this lady was like “Your skin is so beautiful. I love the color. And so soft!”
Which would’ve been okay except: A) I had not touched her in any capacity and B) She said it like she was planning on roasting me like a chicken and then harvesting it.
It took everything in me not to back up.”
“True story: last year my wife said to me, when I look at you I can tell that when you were younger that you must have had a really great body!
8. They’re real!
“My partner and I were at a David Sedaris reading in Glasgow years ago.
We had dressed up a bit, I was wearing a dress with a square neckline. After the reading, we went up to him to get our books signed.
When it was my turn, he looked at me and said “Wow, you’ve got fantastic breasts”. I said “Thanks! They’re real!” to which he replied “I know, I can tell!”.”
9. Still think about it…
“I had a guy at the bar tell me I had big feet.
My feet are size 7 so I’m still puzzled.
Sometimes I think about it at like 3:00 a.m.”
10. All natural.
“A bodybuilder once asked my how i managed to get my calf muscles so sculpted.
I haven’t ever done a single calf workout in my life.”
11. A new career?
“I was working as a cashier at a dollar store and normally got compliments for having a nice voice.
One day a customer was checking out and making small talk, he ended with “you have a really nice voice, you could be a phone s** operator.”
I had no idea how to respond.”
12. Big money!
“A homeless man approached me when I was 18 and yelled “You have beautiful hair! You could sell it for $800!!!!”
I looked into it and he wasn’t wrong. Still kept it though.”
13. Just perfect.
“That I have perfect eyebrows.
I’m a guy and I get this one pretty frequently from women. I don’t do anything with them and it’s made a few female friends of mine jealous over the years.
I don’t understand how or why their perfect (they’re eyebrows…) but, as I said, I get this one a lot.”
Now it’s your turn!
Share the weird compliments you’ve received in the comments.
Thanks a lot!
