A Hat Full of Compliments

Fall/Winter Caps and Baseball Hats from Hartford York - Ivy Caps & Ball Caps - Wigens Shearling BallcapIn case you need a little coaching, cultural anthropologist and writer Dustin Wax has an article over on LifeHack.org called How to Take a Compliment. One suggestion he makes is that you look at compliments in the same way you view gifts. You don’t usually decline a present or laugh at the person who’s giving it to you; you receive unexpected gifts with surprised pleasure and thanks.

As you might guess, I’m pretty accustomed to accepting compliments. I mean, I don’t get them about my person, like “Hey, you’re looking really really good, man” or anything–it’s pretty much, well, really it’s always the hats that get the praise, of course: “Wow. Nice hat, guy. Where’d ya get it?“–stuff like that.

(Actually, when you think about it that way, it is a bit depressing.)

On the other hand, who’s the fella with the great taste to pick out those fantabulous hats in the first place?

I’m back on top!
