In response to daily post http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/why-thank-you/(Why, Thank you? What’s the best (or rather, worst) backhanded compliment you’ve ever received? If you can’t think of any — when’s the last time someone paid you a compliment you didn’t actually deserve?)
At work I received a few compliments from my coworkers such as “You’re a wonderful worker”, “You’re work is organized and done on time”, or “You’re a team player”. The truth is the compliments are just a way for them to be lazy and laid-back, meanwhile I’ll do all the work. Now, after I realized exactly their intention, I just complete my work and go home. I don’t need them to compliment my work. I can get my work done.
There’s only one person I appreciated those words, my boss and I received daily a bunch of these.
