How to Respond to “You Look Terrible” or “You Look Tired”

In past entries, I have addressed how rude it is to tell someone they look terrible or tired.  Today, I will offer a response to such a comment.

If you are the unfortunate victim of a rude comment about your appearance, simply say, “Oh my, how sad to hear.  I was feeling rather good today until you made that comment.”

    good advice, although sometimes people say it I look tired because they care and are worried. I suppose one has to gage who is saying it and why. As for the “you look terrible” comment, grrrrrrrrrr!
