girl upset meWatch
She said Im a saddo to me and said have I not got anything better to do. It all started with me saying the bus is **** then she says all that. I just feel offended by it all, it demotivated me, it made me think why am I doing it. I didnt cry but hurt my feelings because I put in so much time into cars for a long time. Im still upset about it, she also had her mates sticking up for her. It wasnt just her it was quite a few people in the room just agreeing and laughing with her at me.
It sounds like when you insulted the bus, it made HER feel insulted. We don't know what her story is: maybe all she can afford is the bus and she can't afford a car? Maybe she really cares about the planet? I don't know. But it's clear she felt like saying the bus is **** is insulting to her in some way and in defence she angrily started insulting the things you liked. She's not wrong that some cars are polluting etc - but not ALL cars will mess up the planet. Hybrids and new technologies are making newer cars more eco-friendly.
Don't let a few people's opinions knock your passions & interests. It's never a waste of time to put your time into something you love, are interested in and enjoy. If the planet's state is important to you too, look into learning more about eco-friendly options for vehicles
That said, being so vehemently against people liking cars is a weird take. Maybe she's insecure because she can't drive herself or even afford lessons? She sounds quite naive tbh and will no doubt change her mind when she realises that driving is generally a lot less hassle and gives you much more freedom than the bus. Public transport is a lifesaver for some but you're limited with both the times and routes that they run.
