Complimentary Medicine

"You *are* looking well!"

When you're feeling a bit 'down' and need someone to make you feel good about yourself, this would be a service you can call on to have compliments lavished on you.

Complementary Medicine? http://www.compleme...ellness03192003.pdf
Sorry, it's a pdf-thingie. Amazing what changing a single letter can do. [PeterSilly, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]


       Just down the hall from Arguments isn't it?

       Would the service cater to the hearing impared too?

       What I was suggesting is that this is a natural and obvious extension of a famous sketch. Abuse is room 12, Arguments in room 12A. Very likely Compliments might be in the same floor, somewhere near Complaints and Being-Hit-On-The-Head lessons.

       From what I've heard this is how most complementary medicine works: the practitioners are really nice and sympathetic and ask how you're doing and make you feel better about yourself.   

       Of course if you were to put this into practice as a business idea, you'd have to deal with the fact that only 0.26% of the population knows the difference between complimentary and complementary, and therefore I might have to fishbone this as impractical.

       This sounds like some sketches from BlackAdder IV - "ah, Darling, there you are."
