How to deal with...

...friends that just don't get it?

A friend of mine (she's fit, so all is forgiven) wrote 'clean me' in the dirt on the back of my car. I didn't tell her off but inside I died a little.

Then another friend's hubby was giving me jip about car cleaning after I was telling them why sponges are bad.

There's no winning. How do you explain why you take detailing to the level you do? My simple answer is that it's my car and I enjoy doing it

I get the same issues, I kind of just keep stum as it’s easier that way.

Each to their own bud - I just talk and discuss with those that want to know and don't to those that don't / think they know better...

Was just chatting with one of the software engineers that was visiting last week and we got on to cars and the usual comment from the background as said about me cleaning them (which I don't mind) and he asked me loads of questions and we had a really good chat - he's going to e-mail me when he picks his new car up in a couple of months about product options and what he has / could do with getting, but I wouldn't have talked to him / discussed any of this had he not brought it up

Just go with the flow...
