Hey, welcome and don't get discouraged. Everyone has a right to their own opinion, and I personally wasn't offended by your comments. I hope we all don't have to walk on eggshells in here, but you might have to grow some thicker skin -- lots of wisdom in here and I for one am humble enough to take my knocks, as a newbie.
I found it hilarious that you defended your right to your car! NO ONE better drive that car, dude, I can't even imagine my boyfriend even driving our crappy van without my husband's ok, I mean that is only common courtesy.
I think you're nice. Stick it out, you're welcome here, this is a great bunch of sassy people
