Several months ago, I was walking across campus to a meeting when I saw a random student standing outside a building, shouting things out to people walking by. I didn't pay much attention but as I passed him, he shouted "nice purse" to me. I had just bought the purse and loved it so I was excited someone noticed. "Thanks," I said and noticed he was a holding a sign that said Free Compliments. What I great idea, I thought and I always smile when I think back to that memory.
It turns out this wasn't a one time thing. This student and his friend have been giving out compliments on a regular basis. And tomorrow they're being featured on Oprah.
Super. Cool. Check it out.
