Implicit insults

When I went to the Virgin Megastore on Saturday for the $10 sale, the clerk ringing up my stack of CDs said "Wow, this is a really great album (The Decemberists' latest) you have really good taste in music." She then looked at the DVDs I was buying and said...nothing.

Look, if you're going to compliment someone's musical selection you have to ALSO say they are buying good movies. Otherwise, well, it's an indictment. It's like saying "You know, you're a really good looking guy. As for your personality, well, you're a good looking guy."
