i know what you mean Kitty. I hate people forcing their opinion on to me. I seem to get it the other way, everything I do I'm told how dangerous it is.
me "i'm doing a skydive" friend "bl00dy dangerous that is remember that guy who's chute didn't open"
me "i've started working as ground crew for hot air balloons" my dad "that's dangerous that is, remember that girl in germany who got caught up in the line & whisked away?"
me "i've applied for my shotgun license" my sister "they're dangerous they are, don't tell anyone you have one they might come round to take it off you!" wtf?
same scenario for when i started flying in my mate's light aircraft, mountain biking, buy to let properties. etc
my response tends to be "too right it's dangerous or risky, but so is crossing the road, they only report the mishaps because they happen so rarely, if they reported every parachute that landed safely there'd be no room on the news for anything else"
that's my rant over!!!
so yeh it is annoying when people force their opinion on you. kind of makes me dig my heels in
