What would you think of this?
Ever gotten a back-handed compliment? ( I think that's the right expression.) Today a customer of mine, who is usually very sweet, came in. She is an older lady and I hadn't seen her in a while. She asked me if I had gotten a complete makeover for Christmas! And I asked, "Why, do I look different?" And she said"You look nice, almost- and here she mouthed a word I didn't make out. When I looked confused she said "pretty." I look almost pretty? What the -? Nice, huh? So I wondered part of the day what, in her estimation, would take me from "nice" to "pretty." Oh well, people have said worse to me since I moved here. lol
