Why yes, compliments do work as bribes.

One of the housekeepers poked her head into my office this morning and asked, "What's your name?"

Me: *Blink* Summer.

Her: Ooh, pretty name.

Me: Thank you.

Her: *Points outside to the falling snow* It's not summer outside!

Me: *Inwardly sighs* No, it certainly isn't.

Her: But you do have a pretty name.

Me: *Smiles* Thank you.

Her: There were people talking about you earlier. When you used the intercom one said, 'Oooh, she has a pretty voice. Who is that?' Another person said, 'Oh, that's Summer. She's the one with blonde hair in the office.' So, I wanted to make sure that was you. *She smiles* Pretty name though.

Me: *Smile back* Thank you.

Her: *Smiles brighter as she points* Not like the cold weather outside.

Me: *Half smile* Nope.

Her: But a very pretty name.

Me: Well, thank you.

Her: *Nods* Pretty pretty name. *Walks off*
