Compliment from the Young
This week I had to go to my endocrinologist, and the receptionist is a young, cute Hispanic girl. I gave her my name and she pulled my very thick chart--been a patient there a long time. She looked at me and said, "I hate to tell you this, but you look a lot younger than you are." I said "Never hate telling someone that!" She said she thought I was 10 years younger and that she had pulled the wrong chart when she saw my birth year. I have had men tell me this before, but I figure they have ulterior motives, like the guy in Trader Joe's recently who carded me, looked at my license, looked at me, and said, "Impressive." But coming from a young girl who had nothing to gain by saying something, now that was a compliment!
