Just because I like video games!

HI, this might have happened to you but I don't think so.
Anyway this thread is here so I can get your opinions on the following.
Two days ago on the school bus I brought in my Nintendo mag because I wanted something to read on the 45 minute bus journey. Suddenly these 15 and 16 year olds say I'm really sad, have no social status whatsoever,
and I haven't even done anything to them I was just reading quietly.
I thought, well, I'll just ignore them because it's not really that big of a deal. Then they start talking about what my dad must think about me and the respect of my family is one of the most important things I believe in, so in other words I get very angry at people who talk crap about my family or disrespect them. They then start saying that my dad has done something wrong with me, they say that I'm a loser and my parents are idiots. Now all I wanted to do was to hit them, no matter if they're 3 years older than me, they would of at least know that I would fight back. But then I didn't and now I just feel really bad, because from that day on they think I'm some sort of freak! And I'm really not happy, so what do you think, am I sad or what?

Lioness seems to have edited it. Thanks.

No, you aren't sad. Some people on this planet are jerks. Don't worry much about it. They can have fun breaking teeth and facing some consequences from bad karma, and you can enjoy the good karma.

Re: Just because I like video games!

Heh.. you know, ones that actually openly calling another person sad because they read video game megazines or whatnot, are usually the ones that don't have an access to a video game in the first place. They are sad for not be able to play and enjoy a video game. Probably a bunch of loners that don't have friends over to play with them. Oh ho. And they are immature as well. Being older than you are, this is sad. They are sad. Pathetic even.

Re: Just because I like video games!

Those guys are obviously jerks, and must have a low enough self-esteem to pick on someone younger than them. -_-

Just don't listen to them. You can like whatever you want. You shouldn't care what a buncha jerks think. Stand strong, Holy_Link!

Re: Just because I like video games!

Ignore them, I'm 19 and the guys at college sit around and talk about VG's all the time. We have a whole section of the lounge devoted just for VG fans, we sit there and play: Goldeneye, SSB, SSMB, SoulCaliber III, Naruto, etc.

They did the same thing to me when I was your age, and they're doing it just to get a cheap laugh. Just don't let it bother you, if they get a reaction they'll only do it more.

And your not sad, you just have a hobby. It's perfectly normal.

Just never stoop to their level, if they say something to you laugh at them and carry a smile. This always confuses and ticks them off.

You talk big man, but thats not the way to solve anything.

I feel your pain Holy one, but there isnt much you can do. These guys are immature and just wanna make themselves bigger than you because they are insecure about themselves. Don't let them get to you, thats what they are trying to do.

You'll win if you ignore them and just believe in yourself.

Thus ending the most helpful and intelligent post I have ever written.
May it rest in peace

Re: Just because I like video games!

Holy Link, you're a better man than any of those kids will ever be. Real men don't spread gossip or rumors, and they don't pick fights. Ignore the obnoxious preps, there's no reason for you to care what they think. I know, it gets annoying the way they go around spreading their stupidity, but just be yourself, stay calm, and do whatever you need to do to keep a cool head. It's okay to let them know you can hear, but remember to be the better man. After all, the meek shall inherit the Earth. If you're not a Christian, here's an alternative: the geeks shall inherit the Earth.

Re: Just because I like video games!

Well, ARE you a anti-social loser with no freinds and a bad family that finds solace in video games?

Well, then what are you worried about? They're just trying to hurt you. They expect you to fight back, they want it.

Welcome to the magical world of stereotypes and assholishness (Holy ****ness! I made a new word, and another! I'm so proud ).

Re: Just because I like video games!

Don't listen to them. They have no respect and don't appreciate what other people like. They will be the ones working for you when you're older anyways . Anyways, karma will bite them in the ass hard. That really pisses me off. Just don;t pay attention.

Don't make fun of their moms, that's silly. IMAO, They want you to fight back, that would bring you more problems. Just try to figure something clever to say to them, that really works. Or just ignore them, it seems they want to be jerks.

Yup.

OK, both of you are idiots. Please, don't listen to them.


I'd say you shouldn't just take it, but you shouldn't stoop to their level, as these two would do. I mean, don't just straight up punch them, just tell them to lay off or something.



And if they don't stop after a while, aim low.

I usually just say "I don't give a damn what you think." and continue reading.
