I work a graveyard shift in a call center and the other night a few of us were knitting and crocheting. This girl has the nerve to go "Oh wow that would bore me to death I guess I could do it if I wanted to sleep." Mind you this girl was whining that she was "so bored" and "so tired" because there weren't really any calls. I however was NOT bored at all and the night flew by for me.
When it was time to go home I gathered up my supplies and trotted out smiling while she was dragging her feet.
She hasn't said such things since and honestly she'll probably end up crocheting at some point ahahahahaha.

What horrible snotty comments! You should have turned to her and said "Well, I prefer to do something constructive with my time, it beats sitting around and complaining." She probably just said it was boring because she was jealous that all you guys could do it though.  Wink
Luckily I haven't had many snotting comments even though I crochet sitting outside between my classes a lot, most people just ask me what I'm knitting. I do get the "gee I wish I had that much free time" or "you must have a lot of free time" comments a lot though, to which I reply "no, I don't have much free time at all, that's why I'm using this time to crochet instead of just standing around" That usually shuts them up, heh.

I've just started crocheting recently (mostly because of craftster, and have gotten nothing but positive comments so far. My friends wanted crocheted stuff for Christmas, and as of now I've finished one of the presents (lol I'm slow), but she wears the hat everywhere (its arrgmatey's slouchy hat) and tells everyone that I made it.

I wish I could crochet at work. I work overnight in a call center also, but the walls would fall if they saw anyone doing something other than work-related. Mind you, everyone reads when it's quiet, but it's all inconspicuous.

I ignore the "what could you possibly make out of crochet" comments. I know the yarn I use to create things with is awesome, as are the things I create, so f-em  Kiss  Wink

All the people who mean the most to me think it's really cool that I crochet. My boyfriend shows off all my projects and so does his family. My family loves to get homemade gifts and they wear/display them with pride. I learned to crochet thanks to a tag team effort of both of my grandmothers. The grandmother I was closest to passed last December from Alzheimer's (one of the evilest diseases). Everytime I pick up my hook, I think of her. I say pish posh to anyone who thinks I am too young to be crocheting or to anyone who thinks its weird. I think it is a gift and I love to share it with other people. In fact, my other grandmother comes to me now to help her with more advanced projects!

The "Wow, you must be really bored/have too uch free time" comments really drive me up the wall. I usually reply with, "Actually, I'm never bored. Instead of just sitting on my ass watching TV like you've been doing for the past hour, I do something constructive" or "Did you watch American Idol last night? Ohhh, you did? Well, I didn't. I was too busy making this dress." It usually shuts them up, especially since I sound so snotty saying it. But hey, we have a right to be slightly snotty to these ignoramuses, right?

Thankfully I don't come across too many, I can't imagine how tight my tension would be all the time, lol.

I get called an "old lady" all the time, but only in joking. My friends love the stuff I make and I've even tried teaching a few of them how to knit. Not that it worked. Some people just can't quite get it. Nothing wrong with that.

When I'm crocheting in public, people just stare at me.

I crochet all the time at school (college) and the only comments I get are "what are you knitting?"  and "oh that looks great!" (when it's 2 rows in lol).  I used to get annoyed when people asking what I was knitting, but now I just answer, I don't bother correcting them lol
