Compliments are always nice to receive but sometimes they're just so off-the-wall you don't know what to think! Well these people share some of the weirdest compliments they've ever got from anyone.



1/28. I got a compliment once that I looked like Brad Pitt. Not a bad thing, just not sure how I should feel about considering I was a 14 year old girl.

2/28. Once, at a party, a lovely and very drunk lady came up to me and said, "I want to build churches in your beard." It was nice. I think.

3/28. Was at a bar waiting in line for the ladies room, long line as there always seems to be. The girl in front of me kept looking back, so I felt like I had to say something to make it not weird, as I had drank a few and probably was staring oddly too.

"I like your dress" I told her

"Thanks. I like..." (long pause) "your compliment."

Ouch.

4/28. I overheard a guy at school telling a story where he told a girl that she was like a Picasso and she said, "Oh, so my face is f*cked up?" he just meant that she was a work of art and had no idea that Picasso was an abstract artist.

5/28. "Can I just say that you look absolutely fabulous for your age! Seriously, for a 40 year old, you look fantastic."

"But I'm only 30."

"Oh. Okay, you look quite old then."

One extreme to the other in the space of about 20 seconds.

9/28. "I love watching you get old." - my sleepy husband while we were riding home on the metro late at night. We've been together for 16 years, I knew what he meant. It was so awkwardly sweet I had to laugh.

10/28. My college had a huge nursing program. At parties the nursing majors would just grab my arms and talk about how awesome my veins were and discuss what gauge of needle they could stick in them.

Still trying to figure out what that means.

12/28. When I had a ponytail I would wear a ball cap when I was working at various stadium events and I would often get comment from guys about my "fine ass". They hadn't seen my bearded man face yet.

I mean I guess?

17/28. "When you walk it looks like you're dancing!"

Supposedly I bounce a tad bit when I walk, so I get a few remarks about that. This one is my favorite.

19/28. I was helping a friend who was going through some troubles with depression, and after about thirty minutes of talking she told me "I just constantly want to punch everyone. Well, I don't want to punch you right now. I don't know why."

I took it as a compliment.

Jokes on her though, because I'm decidedly average looking now.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
