From collierLA:

For anything that you think the speaker might mean as "flattery," just look 'em up and down.

"Sorry I can't return the...compliment."

Optional addition: "See how nice it is to get unsolicited opinions on your appearance from random strangers?" 24 minutes ago

From pteridophyta:

I didn't even do it on purpose, but I once did the most massive fart when a guy grabbed my butt.

Sometimes people's butts are concentrating on holding farts in! Do not distract the butt!7 minutes ago

From weaselina:

Dude-"Suck my dick!"

Me-"Nah, I would rather not get pin-pricks in my gums." 12 minutes ago

From longfork:

Man flashed a group of us at a dance club. I turned to the woman drinking next to me and said:

"Look! It's like a penis, only smaller!"

She did a spit take, and he slunk off to some other part of the establishment, his tail between his legs... 20 minutes ago
