Naw robert...you aren't a loser. If you are a loser that collects toys, then I'm a loser as well but the main thing is that those guys are prolly a punk. The growing up part now these days are a lot different than we were as a kid. I see that the kids now these days are more cruel than the kids back then. Violence on tv, music, and games are what the children like and become an assholes. I wish that growing up in the 80's would be like this today. My daughter and step son doesn't wanna go outside to play, they rather stay home and watch tv, play video games, use the puter which sadden me because back in the 80's.. I was always outside from sunrise to sundown. My friends and other kids would too be outside playing g.I.joes, star wars, transformers, mask, and many more. Those were the good time.

Dude, your def not a loser. But I can understand how it gets under your skin a bit, because for 1, at our age (I'm 32 as well) it may not seem "socially acceptable" but at the same time we arent bothering anyone. So yeah I think, look if I'm with my girl and we're meeting friends from her office the 1st I thing I say usually isnt "I collect Joes, Marvel and anything that has to do with old monster movies". My bills are paid, I pay my taxes, work and dont do drugs or Im not involved in terrorism or midget porn...if I wanna collect Joes, dont come into my space and call me out on it, because seriously...its gonna be a bad day for the both of us, but much worse for you.
I think you handled yourself well, and the mature part of me wants to say let it go, theyre stupid kids. However..and F it because I've already typed a book...I was about 19 or 20 and it was a friday night, early on too. I was at intersection at the light, heading from Barnes and Noble and I can remember I had an issue of Wizard and Famous Monsters Of Filmland that I just bought next to me. 2 punks and a girl next to me were like "hey man, enjoying friday night ALONE??"..."have fun ALONE!!"...and kept saying it for about less then a min, but it seemed like an eternity.
I remember thinking, Im just gonna gun it, turn the car in front of theres and yank him out, beat the 2 of them pretty bad, leave the girl alone then just leave. For whatever reason..probably because I had been in "trouble" before a few of my brain cells kicked in and I said...leave it alone, just keep driving. And I did.
I give you all the credit in the world because I had/have some anger issues...never hit a woman, animal or child. But I have a pretty short fuse...I found weights, martial arts, music.....and yes collecting has made me happy. It allows me to "escape"..which is why I commend you for being at ease, because if I'm "escaping" and not bothering anyone..and you call me out in my own space? Thats pretty much means for war.
You arent a loser, you seem cool, your a father and a husband. Think about this too..you were shopping with your family....they called you a loser. In all honesty, WTF were 3 kids doing in Godamn Wall Mart at 11 pm on a friday if they were so f'ing cool? Monday you'll be back at work and hopefully resolved with your wife. That same day they'll be enjoying the insides of a locker......

I'm only parting with it as I just started kind of collecting T's. I then found the Masterpiece line and I think I'm going that route.
Don't worry about the kids thing either man. I'm sure you know this but they say stupid sh** all the time to just get a rise out of people.
Regarding the wife, that's where you shouldn't have fought but that's none of my business. Looks like from your album that she's pretty cool and doesn't require you keep everything buried in a closet.
Regarding my wife, haha as RESOLUTE started last night she stopped a second (yes, she was actually giving it a shot last night by watching it with me!) and said "you realize you are a total geek?". I said "yep....absolutely and I know what I like!". After about the first 2 eps, she went upstairs to read her book, haha. Oh well, she tried it I guess.....

Like everybody else has said, teenagers are cruel and very stupid sometimes (I admit, I was when I was 16, too). But who cares what some punk kid says. Eventually that kid will either grow up or get his ass beat by somebody else anyways.
You are married, right? Have a family? Have a good paying job? Live decently? If you said yes to all of those things I would say you are not a loser.
Hope you and your wife talked things over that night. Arguing never accomplishes things and it only makes it worse after every minute passes without talking things out with your significant other involved.

Diogenes, one of the better known proponents of the school of Cynics, was often seen to be strolling about with a lamp in broad daylight and when asked what it was for, he would reply "I'm looking for an honest man."

Should have called him out. "excuse me, did you just say something?" Most kids would get intimidated and reply no. Or you could just ignore it. I don't really understand the rage or anger, I guess initially, but to continue being mad while your with your wife in the car ride home, and there after.. Thats rediculous, maybe you should seek anger management.
