Daily Prompt: Why Thank You?
What’s the best (or rather worst) back handed compliment you’ve ever received? If you can’t think of any — what’s the last time someone paid you a compliment you didn’t actually deserve?
I take compliments with a pinch of salt, and let them wash overhead by not taking them seriously.
Sometimes people say things which they actually don’t mean (in their hearts), specially what women say to each other (sorry ladies).
One always say “thank you” to compliments; but what should one say, when some mean souls let you have them couched in words which means the opposite of what they are saying.
At moments like those while I get their actual meaning, I never know what to say. In my heart I deeply wish to insult them the same way (they are doing it).
Alas! I get my retorts when the moment is no longer there.
