Not really sure why you didn't say anything. I know I sure would & I have. People won't know if you don't teach. It's part if the hobby

Well I tried to tell the lady that it wasn't I good idea but the "expert was intimidating and I am only 14" so I really thought if I tried to talk to him I was either going to get yelled at or he would just laugh in my face

Ah yes the old "you're too young to know what you're talking about" stereotype. I remember how that felt. People don't want to listen to older people either. For the most part they only want to hear what they want to hear. Sad really. For those people I suggest a quick google search if they doubt what I'm saying. And as for the employees, I'm not really concerned with their opinion of me. I became friends with their bosses so now they have to listen! Or at least pretend to
