Keep Austin Weird Festival

Compliments -Greeting Guests
Compliments -Greeting Guests

The Compliment Guy was the official greeter at the 2015 http://keepaustinweirdfest.com/ festival. 8 plus hours of continuous compliments to all the fun cool people. I stood at the top of the steps at the Long Center as  virtually everyone that entered received at least 1 genuine compliment.

All the smiles and all the fun and great music equals another great day.  A  brave 7 year old girl walked up to me with her dad off to the side several steps away and asks if she could give me compliments. I crouched down so I could look at her eye to eye.  She said some wonderful brilliant compliments. I then gave her some compliments. Next, she opened her arms as wide as possible towards her back and asked: ” may I hug you”? She gave me a hug with a smile that warmed my heart.

Each and every day I give compliments something extraordinary happens on top of an already great day. The extra great moment at the Keep Austin Weird Fest was an extraordinary 7 year old girl that clearly will achieve great things.

The Festival organizers said “The staff and people loved you, hope you will be back next year.” Yes of course, I will be back. I always go where I’m welcomed.
