One thing I will never understand
How is it okay to trash on someone else’s opinion just because you don’t agree with it?
Today, I had a discussion with someone about Hollywood movies and TV shows at my tennis class- precisely about the Fast and Furious series. Personally, I don’t particularly have a fondness for them- I don’t see the appeal of cars going over a lot of speed limits and inevitable being blown up, but if you do like the series, then great for you! You’ve found some on-screen entertainment that you happen to enjoy!
But this guy, when he asked me about my opinion and I told him so, he called me pretentious. He said, and I quote- “Lol, you weirdo- you have no taste, and you’ll watch crap like Black Mirror and Mr. Robot- you think you’re probably more intellectual or smart or whatever than the rest of us are.” And then he explained why the shows I like are shit, even though I didn’t ask for his opinion.
Well, I’m never going to bother talking to this dude again.
