What was the best compliment you ever got from somebody other than your partner/ family/ friends?

A guy once cycled by in the high street once. Short eye contact and he turned around and ask if I would mind taking on flowers from him. I just reminded him of a dutch actress from the 70's (I've never heard of) he liked very much. I didn't mind. And he handed me this BIG BUNCH of pink and white irises he had tied to his luggage carier! They were so pretty. Thank you.
Never saw him again.

  • I'm a nursing student, and I had a patient tell me the other day that I was going to be a wonderful nurse because I had an excellent bedside manner. The patient then proceded to tell my instructor that I was great and to give me good grades for the day. Aww, I'm blushing!

  • The best compliment I have ever gotten from a stranger is that I must be doing a great job raising my kids because they are so polite and well-mannered (yeah, in public or at other people's houses LOL!)

  • When I was an insecure new mom having no family support for breastfeeding my Dad, who was not one for really talking to me, told me I was taking good care of my 4 week old son. I will never forget it.

  • Total strangers often tell me I do not look my age, and at 61, this is quite the compliment........

  • I was in Tim Horton's last week with my dd who is almost 18.   When she called me mom, the woman behind the counter said I didn't look old enough to be her mom.  I was 29 when she was born lol.
