Should I confront this guy for making a harsh comment about me?

    I'm a girl in uni, and my family own a small holiday caravan which we go to during holidays etc. There is a guy on our course who seemed friendly and nice, i've seen him at social events and stuff and he's always been pleasant to my face, but I don't know him extremely well. Apparently my friend saw him out recently, and somehow I came up in the conversation, and the guy asked where I was that weekend. We had gone to stay at our caravan, and my friend told him this. Apparently he said to her, "oh that's not a surprise, she seems like the type of person who would go to a caravan", and looking down his nose at it. I don't really care what his problem with caravans in, my friend in question, her family own one too in a different place, he's obviously a snob, but when he said I 'seem like the type of person', I really don't get it, is he saying i'm some kind of tramp or or something :s
    I was surprised about this as he didn't really seem the type of person to make snide comments, and I have no idea what he means by it, I really don't think there's anything wrong with it, should I apologise to him that my family do not own some luxury villa in the Bahamas?
    Do you think it's worth confronting him about this, or just ignoring it?

    You should ignore it, although if you're tempted and you catch him making a comment again, you can always bring this back up as he won't have realised that you know about him commenting on you like that. Then he'll know to be more careful when making comments about you, or possibly other people too!

    It doesn't sound that offensive anyway, he could of meant any number of things by the comment he meant, which may not of been offensive. I'd honestly forget about it, it's to trivial and to vague to kick up a fuss about.

    What an odd comment Brush it off, put it down to his caravan-less childhood (let's be honest, he's missed out)

    Wait, why do you think he meant you insult by that? Maybe he said it in a good way, as in you're adventurous/fun/sporty/any number of things

    Agreed... LOL

    nah just ignore him, hes a total loser and lacks the maturity to aknowledge people may have different social activities to him. Such a sad person, youll come across loads of idiots like him. Chin up, and move on. He is well and trully- Not worth it.


    But if he bothers you repeatedly.

    break his jaw.

    :lol:

    OMG are you serious OP? He is not saying anything bad to you, he means that's what you obviously look like; an adventurous person, someone who is different and not typical (that's a good thing). It's not a surprise because its obvious to him.

    He seems like a fairly nice chap. The next time you see him, run up to him and give him a great big hug!
