Worst Backhanded Compliments I've Received

Because some people...
  1. You are beautiful! But you'll be more beautiful if you lose weight.
    I've been hearing this since I was 5 years old.
  2. You *were* so pretty!!!
    I gained weight and I guess now I'm a monster to these people?
  3. I like your hair, but you looked so much better with long hair. I rather that way. Why don't you let it grow?
    I rather if you shut up.
  4. "You're hair looks so much prettier straightened, I like it way better"
    馃檯馃徏I happen to love my curly hair, I don't care what people say about it, but like whoa, rude.

  5. "She knows a lot more than she lets on."
    Sooo I seem kinda stupid? I think they meant I'm good at keeping secrets and don't let on that I know things I'm not supposed to.

  8. I had a patient chatting with me about Easter and what my plans were, I said, "my kids are grown now and I'm not really religious, so, no plans"..he (obviously, without thinking, I'm going to assume!) says, "but you're so nice!" Um, thank you?馃槀

  9. You look so pretty, if you wore makeup like this every day you'd get a boyfriend.
    Because my sole aim in life is to get a boyfriend

  10. "You've gotten so big!"
    She was very clearly talking about how I was an adult and not the middle schooler she last saw me as. But there's definitely a better way to phrase that. Especially since she said it while I was eating a burrito.
