How to Respond: The best way to handle this is with a non sequitur segue. Just take a puff off your Vapor Couture electronic cigarette and say something like, “Speaking of great hair, I need to go home and feed my cat.” Works every time.

2. The Crappy Compliment: When someone compliments the $12 belt you bought from Old Navy, they probably aren’t being sincere. Or they have no idea what real fashion is… This tactic is a favorite of slimy sales people. Especially the ones offering free neck massages from that kiosk in the mall. They’re buttering you up before asking for your money.
How to Respond: Don’t make eye contact. Just keep walking.

It paralyzes you for a half-second with everything you love to hear and everything you want to hear, all at once.

How to Respond: Be gracious, and say thank you! Make sure your Vapor Couture Smartphone Clutch is filled with vapor cigarettes should one of these rare gems ever head your way.

4. The Drive-By Compliment: This is a great compliment—at first. It feels good to hear until the person who gave it to you gives one just as strong to the next person he or she sees. These compliments are usually delivered by insecure people who just want others to like them. And, they’re usually appreciated by insure people who just want others to like them. Depressed yet?
How to Respond: A Vapor Couture vapor cigarette should snap you out of it.

5. The Friendly Fire Compliment: You’re standing there in your hot dress just waiting to be noticed when some attractive man looks your way and says, “Nice dress.” You blush. You smile. You look at him and say, “Thank…” just as a more attractive woman standing behind you and wearing an even hotter dress says “Thank you.” Awkward? Embarrassing? Devastating? Probably all three.
How to Respond: Walk away and enjoy the rest of your night. You’ll find someone even better!
