I told two people I liked their shirts today: a younger girl (maybe like, 14ish?) wearing a The Fault In Our Stars shirt, and an “older” guy (older than me, anyway; late 30s, early 40s?) wearing a Ghostbusters shirt.
Both compliments were exactly the same “Hey, your shirt is awesome”, but the reactions were completely different. The girl smiled and thanked me, while the guy looked pissed off that I was even talking to him.
There’s no real lesson or moral, here, I just find their completely different reactions interesting.
Shouldn’t their reactions have been the same? I mean, shouldn’t the guy have found it cool that someone likes what he likes? We were walking in to the theater to see the movie your shirt is advertising — couldn’t you have said "Yeah man, stoked to see this in theaters after all these years!"???
Skyrim friends: if you ever want to see a Giant throw a tantrum, attack him and then climb onto a rock on which he can’t possibly reach you. He will pound the ground and then run off into the hills.
SUPER fun to watch.
