Dear young man who complimented me on Spear Street this morning,

First off, let me start off by apologizing. Originally when you made eye contact with me, I had assumed you were some type of solicitor for a cause looking for a donation and I'm not generally in a particularly charitable mood at 8:30 in the morning which was why I attempted to blow you off politely and continue walking. Secondly, when you started walking next to me, I honestly couldn't hear you as I was blasting 90s chick rock on my ipod. Thirdly, my incredibly rude "WHAT??!?" when I took out my earbuds was out-of-line when you simply wanted to compliment me on my hair. So in short, I want to say thank you for the compliment, it made my day and also your kindness has me thinking about how cynical I've become. Please don't let my reaction dissuade you from complimenting people in the future.

Sincerely,
The red-head on Spear Street
