I’m kind of bummed out because I can’t remember someone ever giving me a weird compliment.
But it happens to folks all the time!
And these AskReddit users were nice enough to share the weird compliments they received with us.
Let’s see what they had to say!
1. Thank you?
“I was told that I have nice legs by some random guy that didn’t have legs at Wal-Mart once.”
2. Nice pants.
“A random girl passed me at the mall one time.
We made eye contact for maybe a second. Then she just said “Nice pants” and kept on walking.
My roommate said she was talking about my butt, but I like to think I had some sweet pants on that day.”
“I was assisting an older lady trying to fill out an unemployment claim and she looked down and said, “Mmm, you have nice veiny hands. I LOVE veiny hands.””
4. Good work!
“I was washing my hands in a gas station, and this lady told me I’m very good at washing my hands.
Then she leaned close and said, “No, really. I’m a health inspector, and I’m very impressed.””
“My fantastic European accent
I’m from southeastern US. I do not sound European in the slightest, and I wasn’t putting on an accent.
This person just really thought my country bumpkin voice somehow sounded European.”
“”When you cry, you look like a sad otter. It’s very cute.”
Said to me as a 27 year old man.”
“A guy selling solar panels door to door told me “This is meant as a compliment, but you totally look like John Travolta in Grease.”
I’m a woman.”
8. Wait a second…
“I was told by a random lady in the grocery store that i have birthing hips, i am a 26 yo man.
Not sure if it was a compliment, but it was definitely strange.”
9. Not sure what to make of that.
““You have a very swan like voice”.
She did mean it as a compliment but she’d never heard a swan so she was just going off of how swans look.”
“I like your teeth what do you do to them?
I was so uncomfortable because I replied by saying I brush them with toothpaste…”
11. Still got it!
“I was dressed as a zombie for a scare acting job at a haunted house – full-on gore, horrendous outfit, the works.
I scared a group of lads and then as they were walking away I heard – “Dude, was it just me or did that zombie have a fantastic a**?””
12. Conventionally attractive.
“A friend recently told me “you have a very conventionally attractive laugh.”
I wasn’t paying attention to how I was laughing at the time and I’m kind of a wreck over wondering how I was laughing to be able to recreate it.
I probably laugh entirely differently now that I’ve been alerted to it.”
Have you ever received a weird compliment?
