Passive-aggression is what sets humans apart from the animals.
Being nice and mean at the same time? Now that takes brainpower.
People are sharing the "worst," most backhanded compliments they've ever received, and it teaches with an important lesson: never talk to your parents' friends.
My mom's friend told me this. "Yours is the only huge nose that probably does not need plastic surgery." I still don't know how to feel about this.
Michael Jordan said to me “Thanks, at least you’re good for something.”
He was a guest at our golf course on a very rainy day. If not for his scheduled visit, the course would’ve been shut down for the day. It was an absolute ghost town.
His group started without him. When he arrived they loaded his bag onto the cart to meet up with his group. I was standing about 50 feet away minding my own business. He called me over and asked if he could have the towel I was holding. I replied “Of course Mr. Jordan.” Thats when I got the unwarranted “compliment.”
