    I know it's a random question...

    A few days ago I called my mobile phone provider to set up a new direct debit as I had changed banks...

    When the person was waiting for the new direct debit to be authorised by my bank she said something like (I can't remember exact words as I was taken aback) please, I have to say that you have a very nice voice. It took me a few seconds to reply as I was quite surprised but I did manage to say Oh, thank you and then she proceeded to say that the new direct debit was set up etc etc...

    It is not the first time I have been told that I have a 'nice' voice but I certainly did not expect to hear this in the type of conversation I was having. Please don't get me wrong - I admire the woman for veering away from a scripted interaction with a customer. I found it quite refreshing and it made me smile and boosted me a little.

    So, how about you, with the compliment thing?

    Yes. Just a few days ago my friend called me a genius. I couldn't help but laugh at that statement and he was actually getting annoyed that I'm not "accepting" the fact I am a genius. I then said I don't consider myself to be one, as a genius would be someone exceptional, such as Elon Musk for example. My friend then said "If you're not exceptional, then I don't know who is."

    I have only ever been truly speechless once in my life and it was for very negative reasons.

    Sometimes it is difficult to take a compliment - some see it as a 'gift' that is given freely.

    Aww, maybe you will get some soon - I hope you do.

    I am sorry to hear that - would you care to elaborate?

    Take care and be good to yourself.

    That's amazing - good on you.

    I think domestic cats are very independent/nonchalant but I know they can benefit from love and kindness given to them freely by us humans!

    Well done you!

    One guy that I'm never going to get with (mainly because I have a bf and he's a player) once told me "you are the page in my book that I haven't yet read."... that left me speechless

    First day of college, I was just walking through the corridor and some girl said "oohh I like your hair"

    People also say my jawline is amazing when it's really not?

    This girl at uni once told me that I had cute knuckles, but I just know that it was a backhanded compliment.

    When people keep bringing up my resemblance to Selena Gomez. I mean I don't see it but it's flattering and I have no idea how to react to it.
