I told my straight female friend last night that I think she would look really cute with short hair and get a lot of attention from the ladies.
She got mad.
"Thanks, CzeCze. You basically told me that I LOOK LIKE A MAN. I already knew that though, so THANKS"
Wha??? I meant what I said as a compliment! And I do not think 'she looks like a dude'!
I plugged my ipod into my friends' stereo system for a dinner party. This dance anthem came on and I commented, "You know, I heard this song at the club and it sounded so good but after I downloaded it, I didn't like it as much. I think you have to listen to it on a really massive sound system with lots of bass to appreciate it."
My friend and some guests said, 'Ooooooh, so you don't like her stereo huh?"
I tried to explain that I just meant you had to listen to the song in the club but they said I was digging myself in deeper. Eventually the host threatened to bring out her boombox, "then we'll see how much you like my speakers!"
Now your turn!
Ever say something that was meant innocently or even as a compliment and had it totally interpreted differently?
