THE CURSE OF THE COMPLEX COMPLIMENT

Do you know what a Complex Compliment is? 

Do you give them?

How many of them have you received?

Formula to create a ‘CC’:

Using the word ‘but’ link two statements – the first positive, and the second negative.








You look pretty BUT
         
          He’s a smart kid BUT

Your face is beautiful BUT
         
          I like your house BUT

So what are you actually saying?
         
           You look ugly
         
           The kid’s a loser
         
           Your fat bod hides everything else
         
           Your house needs a lot of help

People who use ‘CC’s’ always say they are just trying to be helpful…

Really?

Ever watch the face of the receiver of a ‘CC’?

Does that look like helpful to you?
