Please tell me I’m not the only victim of weird or backhanded “compliments”. I’ve had them happen to me frequently and can’t decide if it is just a basic human error or if I just mix up my style and people don’t know how to properly respond or comment about it (even when it’s definitely not needed). I wore this outfit to work today and was told I look “holy” while the commentators hands were held in a prayer position. Let me be very clear– there is nothing wrong or embarrassing about religion, faith, and/or modesty! But this comment was just that- a comment about my appearance without being a compliment. How do you respond to statements like this?? I responded with a deadpan face and said “that’s not a compliment” and it actually made me feel better than when I awkwardly ask “thank you I guess???”
