Human Codes

Ever notice how you sometimes get random compliments from people you hardly know? They always seem so out of the blue and you’re not sure if they mean it or not. Well, the English ‘social’ language is a complicated one. So for those of you who are confused, here’s a few tips.

When someone says ‘Oh you dyed your hair!’ What they mean is, ‘Eh… you probably shouldn’t have.’

When someone says ‘Your shirt is so cute’, there’s a good chance they mean they hate your pants.

When you’re told that your noisy toddler is ‘Adorable’, perhaps they mean ‘She’d be cuter with a sock in her mouth.’

And sometimes a compliment just means ‘I have nothing else to say.’

We are a weird lot, are we not?


  1. So true! Those pants are awful. Haha, thanks for the laugh!

  2. Ah, trying to turn a negative thought into a positive compliment. I'VE DONE IT
