WARNING: the next paragraph may make you laugh out loud and/or fall off your chair.
I dropped into the offices of a local club to pick up a cheque for my services on monday, of the 3 people in the office I knew 2 of them and was introduced to the third (quite a lovely young lady, I may add) as: “This is Luke, the most eligible batchelor in Bournemouth”! HAHahahaha Me? 😀
Well, I mean I know I’m fantastic… but hey, I don’t shout about it! 🙂
Earlier I was talking to a friend on msn about random stuff, they’ve not been having a great time recently, I said something nice about them and they asked why I was being nice!
We then had a chat about compliments and how hard the average British (I’m thinking it’s a British phenomenon) person finds it to accept a compliment.
It’s weird isn’t it? Most people (I’m obviously so used to people telling me how great I am, I’ve got used to it…) do find it embarrasing or awkward when someone is nice to them. No wonder we’re desending into a land of chavs, where insults are ok, but compliments are scary!
So, I hereby designate 2006 as the year of the compliment and I urge you all to give and receive gracefully as many genuine compliments as you can… share the love!
