Remember the good ol’ days… when spending some quality face time with friends and family was a guaranteed, irreplacable solution to curing your blues?
Well, looks like those times are over. Those suffering from the blues can now get a quick pick-me-up, thanks to EmergencyCompliment.com, a website that generates praise with the click of a button.
Visitors to the the bare-bones site are greeted by a compliment in bold white letters on a neon-colored background.
I had to try this. My very first EMERGENCY COMPLIMENT (much needed, I’m telling you..) was….
want to kiss you. I hope that’s not to forward of me.
Hmm… well, thank you… I guess. I guess I’ll just forget about the fact that you only exist in the cloud, and therefore, have NO LIPS. But thanks anyways :).
I’m not going to lie, it did surprisingly brighten my day and for a split second, I forgot it was just a website. Nevertheless, I had to go on and see what other buttons they can push.
Out of a random sampling of possibly 15 (I just kept pressing the “I still feel crappy button” so i don’t have to buy a damn poster), HERE ARE MY TOP 3 FAVORITES:
A sampling of the pseudo-kudos include: “Your cousins refer to you as ‘the cool cousin,’” “You’ve never had morning breath. I swear,” “Everyone was cool with that time you peed in the shower,” “You’re the best at making cereal” and “Your pet loves you too much to ever run away.”
Users can select two options at the bottom of the page. Click on “I still feel crappy,” and EmergencyCompliment.com generates another pat on the back. But choose “Thanks! I feel better,” and visitors are directed to another site so they can print a poster that displays their compliment of choice forever. Of course..
