I Like Your Clothes

Why is it that when people tell us women they like something we are wearing we do not respond with, "Thank you"?
We respond with, "I got it at Maurices!  Half price!"

It's assumed that, "You like it? Oh, you must one want too. Here's the info you need to find your own at a good price."

We actually discussed these types of responses in a linguistics course of mine once. Goofy stuff.

I just hate the awkward silence that ensues after I just say, "Thanks! I love these shoes, too!" Although, most of the time the complimenter may not be looking for a conversation...
