I am cool...Right?

Have you ever had someone say something to you, and after you think about their comment, you start to think was that a compliment or did I just get slapped in the face. Well I was having a convo with this guy I work with about tattoos and piercings and he makes the following comment to me:

“Well looking at you, I can see you’re a little Punk Rock, but not in a hardcore way, more of a Hannah Montana or Avril Lavigne way”.

He walked away, I just stood there confused. I mean don’t get me wrong I love me some Hannah/Miley, but I am still processing if this was a compliment or a body slam to my ego. I mean I thought I was a little cooler than that…has it all been in my mind…LOL!!


  1. Those are two people that I can't stand. I would accept the compliment and assume that the person doesn't know any better! Oh, and I tagged you to do something lame so go to my blog to get instructions McGee!

  2. Hmmm I think that depends on the guy's taste. Maybe he was trying to say that you were edgy but still cute. But if he's one of those people who can't stand the whole pop/rock craze, then maybe he was trying to talk down to you.

  3. What was his tone when he said it?

    The worst thing is not when someone is potentially paying you a back-handed compliment, but when they ask you when you're due and you're not pregnant! This happened to my friend the other day. Don't people know you should never ask that question?!?

  4. :) not a great fan of either of them.. so i wont take that as a compliment.. its all in the way we take it..if i liked these two.. being compared to them would have made my day..


Thanks for showing me some love!
