DW and DD (4 at the time) were at a shop checkout waiting to pay with an immaculately turned out lady ahead of them in line. My DD caught this lady's eye and said 'I like your rings' to which the lady replied with thanks. For the next while DD proceeded to compliment the various things that this lady was wearing much to the lady's amusement.

On the car ride home DW asked 'why didn't you just tell her that you liked her outfit?'.

DD replied 'I didn't like her pants'!
