In Other Words, compliment…

Thanks to Patricia for setting us today’s In Other Words challenge
Compliments that came my way in the past were usually back handed ones.
Best was from my first MIL who complimented me on my sponge cake.
‘It’s not bad,’ she said with a smile, then ruined it by adding ‘considering you made it.’
I’ve had a bit more practice now.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    People can spoil the whole of the day by saying or doing something that they even don’t mean to!

    • Tact was not exactly her forte, but she was a pussy cat compared to some of the comments I got from Hubby’s Mum. She made me cry on a couple of occasions, but I never gave her the pleasure of seeing that.

    Some people just don’t know how to communicate or maybe they just say too much. Hopefully, someone pointed out her faux pas. Thanks for sharing.
