Today is Compliment Day. It was created in 1998 by Kathy Chamberlin and Debby Hoffman. It is suggested that you give five compliments today. But make sure they are genuine.
MSN Glo created a list of the most backhanded compliments ever. They include things like, "You're so normal compared to the last girl I dated," or "You're a riot when you've had a bit to drink!" Or, if someone says "If only I could be as laid-back as you about all the clutter and chaos," what they really mean is "your house is a hot mess." You can see the full list here.
