It hurts to get backhanded compliments, especially since the person who said the words to you can come across as innocent, even though you know that they were purposely trying to be rude.
However, those kind of compliments can come in handy when you're stuck in a room with someone you just can't stand.
Instead of getting into a fight with them, you can take little jabs at them by using these funny backhanded compliments to insult them:
1. You Look so Good That I Didn't Recognize You
When you tell someone that you can't believe it's them, because they look so amazing, they'll be both complimented and offended.
After all, it suggests that they normally look like a complete train wreck.
It won't take them long to realize that your words weren't really a compliment at all.
