Default Getting made fun of

So.. I have been drinking and really shouldn't be posting. With that being said here I am posting.

I am a 26 year old male. I have piercing's and tattoo's and have always drove a sports car. Recently I had wrecked a car and acquired a PT cruiser free in order to get around. EVERYONE, is making fun of me. It's a great car, great MPG.. but I'm getting made fun of!!! CONSTANTLY.

Who else has ever had this issue?

Question Re: Getting made fun of

More often than not most members here get compliments about their PT's......How bad of shape is this 'aquired' PT in,and I also assume it must not be a turbo either,or they wouldn't be making fun of you that much.

Well, I don't mutilate myself, so I don't get made fun of.

Maybe bring this up. While your buddies are having a good time, and making car payments, you have some cash in your pocket.
Something like "Hey AH, I got it for FREE, so GFY".
Of course I'm more than twice you age so that kind of stuff stopped bothering me a long time ago.

Since I picked mine up I have been getting some ribbing too..

My answer is this.

Name another vehicle that I can haul all me sound gear(that used to completely full a first gen Durango), get high 20's MPG(highway) and pay less than $4k for it?

To which I always get blank stares.

As you can see if you try you can get abused anywhere. Even if they drive the same car. But people drive some pretty ugly stuff. They will laugh at you but are confused as to why you're already laughing at them. They just need to drive one to understand.

Only you can let yourself be bothered by people's comments. So my advice would be to stop letting yourself feel that way and get over it.
