Deconstructing Criticism

Someone recently said this to me (Donald):

"Its unfortunate that you have the personality that you do, especially considering the way you look."

Please don't feel sad for me (well, okay, maybe you can a little), I think this quote is really funny, I just have no idea what to do with it.

Wow, that's a pretty weird quote. Also, who said that?
It's exactly the opposite of my sentiment. I say, "it's fortunate that you have the personality you do, because it's awesome; and it's fortunate that you're so darn handsome.

Do you know what to do with that? You can take it to the bank! (But they won't be interested in it unless you're making a deposit or something as well...)

People are jerks. One time someone told my wife "You look awful," right after she had a baby.

Wait that was you.

So I say, well said anonymous quoter, well said.

Why do you guys keep trying to change that quote?! I said "you look tired"! Now that was still completely insensitive, but at least I didn't say awful.
