Folks Reveal The Weirdest Compliments They Ever Received


Admit it, we all love to receive a compliment, especially since they can instantly make you perk up if you are feeling down. But while compliments can include “your hair looks nice,” or “I love that shirt,” some folks have received some rather strange compliments and they are now sharing.

It all started when someone on Reddit posed the question, “What's the weirdest compliment you've ever been given?." The response was overwhelming with more than 67,000 people were happy to share. 

Weird compliments include:

  • “The piercer who pierced my ears back in August told me my ears were perfect and to call her if anyone said otherwise and she would fight them for me.”
  • “I had pink eye and the nurse was looking into the non infected eye. 'You have beautiful retinas.' Thank you...?”
  • “I went to my 25th high school reunion and a woman I knew then didn't recognize me. When I told her my name she said: ‘Oh my gosh! You're so handsome now!’”
  • “That I’m like a piece of furniture, don’t do much but you notice when I’m not there.”

  • “A coworker once told me that I was ‘a cross between Han Solo and Dr. Bunson Honeydew from the Muppets.’ This was in 1998 and I still can't stop thinking about it - was that supposed to be a compliment? An insult? The worst part is that he was pretty accurate, actually.”
