Today I got a compliment that I think was meant as a note of pity.
A condescending compliment, if you will.
The words were: oh, that's a cute outfit, with the layers"
but it sounded like "nice try honey, but it's not really working"
I have never had this happen to me before.
for reference, here's what I'm wearing today:
(granted, I should have worn a necklace, but otherwise I'm still happy with this outfit)
Have you ever received (or given) a fake compliment?
ps. today I also received a compliment from a barista at a new local coffee shop that my hair was "perfect." So he got an extra tip today.
