I’ve been here a year and engaged with practically all of you without issue. Had plenty of rough and tumble disagreements but never felt the urge to start calling people stupid or shouting in all caps of what an expert I am.My view of her situation:
- Full time job in NY
- Is a micro biologist, so might even be helping with the pandemic directly or indirectly
- Is trying to build a van in a short time period on a limited budget while working full time
- Deals with difficult local people every day, seeking out help / support from like minded crazy people like other van hobbyist
Sounds pretty stressful to me, as well as fairly impressive that she is willing to take on a big project and learning curve like this.
I get insulted and my advice ignored all of the time on this forum. If you don't have thick enough skin to accept that individual opinions really don't matter to any one else, maybe it is time re-consider how you view the world.
Give her a break....
Rude behavior is oftentimes explained by the most uncomplicated reasons. That’s all I’ve got to say on this matter.
