    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."
    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahhahahahahahahaha, that is funny, good one!

    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?
    Nothing like being told you look like the cousin or brother of someone you want to sleep with.

    Did the "girl" ever show you her 'hand'?
    Nope. I didn't want to give her my hand either.

    the thing with me is that im not very good at taking compliments. i just never know what to say to them, honestly!

    this is a everyday situation, my boyfriend compliments me, be it my hair, clothes, smile etc etc, i just cant take it, like even when i say thank you, i sound so scared and confused.
    now i know your gonna say that is my bf so he will obvo compliment you, ffs he loves u.
    but even when older ppl compliment me, oml!

    so say for eg
    im really good with keeping the house clean cause im really OCD but when some one is like 'good job!' or 'i wish my kids would so something like this.' i just freeze and as before when after 1000 years i manage to say thank you i sound so unappreciative.
    OH GOD HELP ME PLEASE!

    Lol, a girl once said to me that I look like a high end model, like the one's that work in london, it was surprizing because I though she didn't like me because I got the feeling that we never got along and then this, made my day
