Being called a human calculator after having solved three digit multiplication problems in my head.

And also having been known for not taking out my anger against my friends since I don't want to drive them away with my complaining. We all get just a little angry sometimes, right?

A sideways compliment.

I pulled into a Motorway Service area a few years ago to get a coffee. A pretty girl came bounding up to me to try to "sell me" a new credit card. I was driving a brand new car and wearing a £500 suit, so they were obviously targeting certain "types".

"What is your job title?"

I told her

"Where do you live"?

I told her about the three countries I was currently calling "home".

"Which of these ranges does your salary fall into?"

I pointed at the chart.

"Would you like my personal 'phone number?"

I'm guessing that it was a joke she had used a hundred times before, but it made me laugh and feel a few years younger.

I've always loved writing stories, and my classmates often tell me how "amazing" my stories are or how talented I am when it comes to writing. Once, we had to submit editorials for a contest on NYTimes and everyone refused to submit one because they said I would win, even without submitting it! :D It made me feel awesome! I'd rather be complimented on my achievements than on physical appearance or something like that.
