    Insult of Complement

    Some one just told me that I dress very well for a chubby person, how should I take that as a complement or insult…!

    :confused:

    Hmm, if someone said to me 'you dress well for a fat bloke', they'd be nursing a black eye... I'd definately see it as an insult.

    I think .... CHEEK.

    There's a complement in there somewhere, but rudely delivered. I hope you thought of a witty comeback.

    You should have said, '...and you make yourself look remarkably good for an ugly person!"

    (You are on a diet, what they going to do about being ugly?)

    Insult!!! I'd have replied to them "how funny, we're kind of like opposites because you dress awfully for some one so slim"

    A few weeks ago my daughter was upset , she is 9, a boy at school said she was fat (she is bigger than average having me as a mum and a 6 foot 4 dad) but isn't fat by any means, anyways I was going to down the route of just ignore him, but I was wicked as he had called her in the past.....so next time he said it she said 'so what, I may be fat but you have more rolls than Greggs'!
    I am such a bad mother !!!!!!!!!!!

    I know how you feel!! A young slimmer work friend was slagging off what a larger lady was wearing and finished with

    "oh no disrespect to fat people, billie, I think you dress really well for yr size, & you have a really pretty face, so thats ok"

    ummm, thanks mate, thats a really back handed compliment or what.
