What He Said – Compliments From A Stranger

I get a lot of compliments every day. It wasn’t until I started recording them that I realized how many. Yesterday alone, I got compliments…

…from the man who got a forwarded email from me and clicked on my Amazon Author page and downloaded my book:

You are really a talented writer. And here it was, I thought you were just good at writing  minutes for meetings. 

…from the man who held the door for me.

You’re so pleasant. Would you believe most  women don’t even say ‘thank you’. 

…from the man in the train

You’re beautiful (and he wasn’t even asking me for money – in NYC, you have to wonder sometimes)

…from the man taking pictures in front of Trump Tower

Maybe you should run for president. I’d vote for you. (I’m not sure if this one is a compliment but it was funny nonetheless.)

…from the man peering over my shoulder in the bus

You type really fast. (Later, I thought about it that maybe I should’ve put him in touch with the first guy so he could know I don’t just typing gibberish – sometimes it actually makes sense too.)

What compliments did you receive lately?
