Oh Honey: Daily Post

What’s the best (or rather, worst) backhanded compliment you’ve ever received? If you can’t think of any — when’s the last time someone paid you a compliment you didn’t actually deserve?


I gained a lot of weight after having Little Sister #2. So I had about thirty extra pounds that I could not get rid of.
One day, a lady that I had known for several months said, “Oh honey, you’d be so much prettier if you lost weight.” So basically she was telling me I’d be pretty or prettier if I wasn’t fat.

Thanks lady?

  1. I hate it when people are mean. When I was younger – think giant 80s hair – my mom hated everything about my MTV appearance (much tamer than today’s version!) so every time I had a ball cap on she would compliment my hair…I hated that!!! The only time she ever complimented my hair NOT in a ball cap in that entire decade, it was flat and fuzzy. She asked what I had done “to make your hair so pretty?” and I replied…”slept on it wet”…sigh…
