Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

Backhanded Compliments
I found this HERE

You know you've received a backhanded compliment when it hurts. You feel slighted, yet the giver of the compliment is still smiling. You replay the conversation back in your mind. Yes, it definitely sounded like a compliment, but something isn't right. You've indirectly been insulted in the form of flattery. Here is a list of our favorite backhanded compliments that sound really kind, but are purely mean spirited.
You're smart to do your laundry on Saturday night, when everyone else is out.
You look like a porn star.
If you were taller, you could be a model.
Hey! Your face cleared up!
Nice dress. I've seen a lot of girls wearing it, but I think it suits you most.
I'm so jealous you don't have to wear a bra everyday.
You're really filling out.
It's so refreshing to have a conversation with someone who doesn't feel the need to prove they are smart.
I think it's so cool that you're comfortable with how you look.
That tasted better than it looked.
Most guys think they have to have a cool car, but not you.
You look so nice today, I almost didn’t recognize you.

    #6 will be true for me. And let me tell you after wearing 44DD since the fourth grade I can hardly wait to strut my C cup with no bra. Of course it will take another month or so to fill up and stretch the skin to that size, then the surgery to remove the expander and implant and put the silicone implant in...but still no bra yeah!
