Enjoy this fun music from the Free Range Revelers. They played their fun inspiring happy music about 300 yards from where I was giving compliments. Assisted by the gentleman Piano man of Texas Adam Lorenza is similar to icing on the cake or topping it off with a top hat. Adam’s personality is kinder than kind and more genuine than genuine. Several hours of compliments assisted by this fun band enhanced the day even more. Live music, fresh air and live people made for another super fantastic day. The many many many smiles were brighter than sunshine warming everyone’s presence.
No Particular order…
* “Nice best friend walk.”
* “Great ankle wrapping.”
* “Perfect human visor.”
* “Nice maneuver of your baby go-kart.”
* “Smooth right turn.”
* “I like how you’re both caring for each others fingers.”
* “I love your chin.”
* “We do not need sunshine with your smile in the world.”
* “You have a sparking personality!”
Compliments will continue as the passion continues to build like a snowball building larger and stronger with each roll. Everyone compliments the world with their existence. You’re complimenting the ground you walk upon or the space you consume. Enjoy it! Each moment of life is super fantastic x 10,000.
I took this video above shortly after being mooned on a nice bright sunshine day on South Congress in Austin, Texas. You can see I’m somewhat speechless in the video. It happen after complimenting this persons friend and then him. A large group of people were in front of Allen boots and while walking this person drops his pants exposing the moon during a nice beautiful afternoon. He than looks back and asks if I’m going to compliment the moon. I do compliment him now on his ability to keep his walking stride without pause as he uncovered and recovered the daytime moon. Very well done. I refrained from complimenting an exposed tail end. I never compliment tail ends anyway as I prefer to look into the person and see what great qualities I can see and feel so all compliments will be genuine.
Momentum continues to build for compliments. Many street vendors are giving compliments as part of their pitch and even ask me if it’s OK. Of course it is OK. It is great! We all appreciate genuine compliments. I continue to meet awesome people with great suggestions to help compliments expand beyond the borders. Many of these suggestions I have taken to heart and I’m currently implementing them to enhance the compliment experience for as many people as possible. I’m very excited planning the action to expand the boundaries of compliments. Very soon some super cool inspiring videos will help launch new compliment formats. You will be seeing changes on the website and announced on twitter @saykindwords as each new idea is implemented.
The smiles I receive from giving compliments is so hugely rewarding I wish everyone could experience this wealthy reward of human beauty. Look forward to another great week giving compliments. Enjoy every moment! If you woke up today it is already a GREAT Positive DAY! You”re SUPER-FABULOUS!!!

Robert aka The Compliment Man
I walked to the courthouse this morning only 2.3 miles one direction. Unshaven for weeks now and wearing black army boots with my shirt out of my jeans and a faded old almost black sweater my sister gave me years ago. I looked like a pirate and felt it was the needed apparel as I entered a government pirate ship. Delayed at security as the metal detector kept going off. The case was scheduled on the 3rd floor and finally I made my way up the stairs. I’m OK with elevators but prefer stairs for many reasons.
My arrival inside the courtroom was 15 minutes early. Upon sitting down I was asked to take off my head ware. My head ware was simply a bandanna. I guess they did not want another pirate in the room. After removing the bandanna I observed the prosecutors and the whole court room. The judge was female and had a good vibe. The 3 prosecutors were like clerks in a grocery store, 1 female and 2 males. Only difference was a routine of words, pen and paper replaced a scanner and beeping sounds. They could not identify my case as a typo changed my last name. I thought this alone is probably enough reason to dismiss the case but then proceeded to help them correct their error.
It was my turn now to sit down and be funneled like water around their system. Surprising, the prosecutor named Tracy Shahan pronounced my name correctly. Only 1 in 10 people pronounce my last name correctly on the 1st try. I told her this as I proceeded to sit down in front of her. I said immediately no reason for you to tell me my options. I told her firmly but kindly you will be dismissing this case. She replied: I doubt it very much. I told her I have an email dated from back in June from the Mayor’s office stating I do not need a permit. She reached for my phone to see it and I said I prefer to email to you. She wrote her email on a piece of folded paper and handed it to me slowly. I than mentioned if this email is not enough I have 9 more valid reasons for dismissal.
We both remained silent as she viewed the email for several minutes on her computer and verified it was real. She than broke the silence and said we will be dismissing the case. She also mentioned you really did your research. Yep I did. She than said the dismissal will be online in a few hours. I requested that I wait for a paper copy. I was not going to risk another error. Errors with courts can improperly put you in jail. Jail is a place I prefer not to visit ever. Within 5 minutes the judge signed the dismissal and I was on my way. Victory. I could have recourse with the city over this matter since the police officer ignored me regarding my information. This time I will go forward forgiving the officer for wasting my time. Next time I will not stop giving compliments if ticketed again and or arrested for no valid reason I will exercise full recourse.
Thanks for reading this far. I appreciate your support.
The Compliment Guy/Man
My Favorite Compliments this Month.
No particular order:
- ” I Love Your Individual Uniqueness!”
- ” I Love your nose! Perfect for Eskimo Kisses!”
- ” You have a cute nose. Noses know!”
- ” Love your smile! You brushed your teeth today.”
- ” You have so much Soul, you do not need shoes!”
- ” Great ear lobes!”
- ” Your framed in well, Great shoulders!”
- ” Your beauty radiates BRIGHTER than sunshine!”
- ” Your eyes light up the city! No need for street lights.”
- “Great man pecks, you did push ups before.”
A festival for nuts so I knew I had to go. I could not find any nuts though, I love pecans, cashews, walnuts and almonds. The festival had endless tents of cool art, things and people.
The challenge to give compliments to so many people would exhaust me within 20 minutes. I would than have to pause and remind myself to breathe and restart. It was a blast of fun and smiles. I continued to give rapid fire compliments for approximately 4+ hours. Many people high fived me, some hugs and others brought me a Popsicle and water.
On 10/11/15 The Compliment Guy was given a ticket under an “outdoor music permit ordinance 9-2-11. The officer approached me earlier in the day as he barged out of Allen boots where he was moonlighting as security. He took the time to print out the ordinance and highlight with yellow marker the clause on megaphones. I told him it does not apply to me and I cannot even get a permit for what I do as I tried months ago when you told me I needed to before.
On the 6th of November I”m confident the case will be thrown out for 5 reasons:
1-I’m not a music venue, I’m not made of brick and mortar.
2-I have an email from the Mayor’s office stating I do not need a permit for what I do, nor is their a permit available for what I do.
3- 1st amendment right for free speech, free assembly with a public cause. My cause is seeing people smile, and feel good.
4- I was not playing music nor breaking sound decibel laws.
5- No one called in to complain, nor did I disturb the peace. If anything I helped keep the peace by helping people feel good.
Well lets see what happens on the 6th. If for some reason it is not thrown out a jury trial will be requested and I will compliment everyone in the room with my opening statement. Is it not the job of a police officer to keep the peace and if so than I should have been allowed to keep doing what I love, Giving Compliments with my megaphone.
UPDATE: I went to the court house on the 6th and was told by the clerk prosecuting attorney does not work on Fridays. I was told previously I could see the prosecutor on my ticket date. I’m now scheduled for December 1 to meet with the prosecuting attorney.
Oh well based on my past experience with anything government related this is to be expected. No big deal, will deal with it on the 1st if no glitches.
Compliments and Stand up comedy at a Brazos Valley Baseball game. We had a grand slam variety of comics for the line up. One young brave girl volunteered to tell a joke from the infield. Her confident poised delivery won the crowd.
The event at the BV Bombers game was high energy and total fun for us all. We were treated 1st class by the management. All our needs and more were met with genuine care. A great family event.
Compliments again on South Congress and the encounter with the super human hug group led by Jenna Jasso. I took a pause break to receive genuine super hugs from the group pictured above. A super human hug is not rushed and connects the hearts of both huggers.
I was also used for a prop by Ron (on the left in pic above)as he displayed his extensive variety of hugs. I learned some new hug styles and realize I may need a portable shower nearby if Ron comes by again to shower off his extensive hug sweat. Thank you for the hugs and adding your great smiles to the Million Smile Project.
