Are you one of those people that just cannot take a compliment? If you are like Pam,you cannot. I know I do it. If someone says "hey thats a cute shirt"...you might reply by saying "I got it on the clearence rack at Target for $1", or "oh this old thing". Go read this, and tell me, is this funny or what? God I must sound like a total dork when I do that.
I have learned my lesson and will just say "Thanks".

I'm learning slowly but surely how to just say thanks. Normally, I end up making the complimenter sound like an idiot for complimenting me.
I'm not too bright sometimes.
Just saying "thanks" is enough said most of the time! :)
This is funny because just today I told TNT how pretty her hair looked and that she was having a good hair day.
She argued with me, saying that it looked awful.
And went on & on about how it could be better.
I just stared at her... then she realized what she was doing, smiled, and said "thanks".
Which is how she normally responds to compliments in the first place :-)
Bad responses to compliments:
"What do you want from me?"
"But I have a dead hooker in my trunk."
(Falls to floor in fetal position and rocks back and forth sobbing)
"You're not nearly as self-centered as everyone says you are!"
"Talk is cheap, you holding any meth?"
