Sometimes when people speak, they leave you stunned.

You have to wonder what is running through people's minds.

Compliments are lovely until they sound like a reason for a restraining order.

Redditor dannydevitocuddleswanted to hear about the things people have said to others, thinking they were trying to make a person feel good, but just left bewilderment. So they asked:

"What's the weirdest compliment you've ever received?"

I lead with simple honesty when complimenting. Be me...

Umm...

"Was told I have a beautiful brain while doing a paid MRI study."

"I guess seeing the brain is just really cool for that person. Maybe it was the fact that he was seeing a real life active brain and the person using it, when usually any other picture of a brain is from an unloved textbook. It’s crazy to think that our whole world is stored in like five pounds of sentient flesh."

"I've been chubby for years but when I was younger I was in gymnastics. Early high school I went to a friend's house for a little get together grill party thing. Some of the kids were dancing and tumbling and whatnot in the huge lawn they had. I proceeded to do a long a** string of cartwheels as I could still do it even as chubby as I had gotten. My friends were stunned. It was great xD."

"I have a perennial baby face and am a pretty quiet/shy individual but have a deep voice. Someone in one of my classes held the door so I said thanks. The girl holding the door did a double take and shouted 'WAIT THATS WHAT YOU SOUND LIKE???' And honestly that'll stick with me for the rest of my life."
