Valet complains my cars too low

I have a two inch drop on my wagon but not too agressive. I'm 50 yo and get in and in and out of the thing with no problem. So tonight I went to a local tapas joint and parking was screwed so I had to valet. I will not valet if I can help it but the place was a zoo so I took the valet line.

Dropped the car off, ate dinner at the bar. Come out to a line at the valet pickup. After 15 minutes I finally get my car and this kid barely 20 yo pulls my wagon up then nearly falls out of it. Then looks at me and says "your cars too low I think there's something wrong with the suspension". Obviously he's being an ass but I had no idea what to say so I just said "well, I built it that way and it goes where I want it to... and then I started to hand him his tip then decided to drop it on the sidewalk and said "sorry there was something wrong with your tip"

I'm officially a grumpy old dick.

He probably wasn't trying to be an ass. You certainly were.

So you got pissed because someone else thinks your BMW wagon looks like **** with 2" lowered suspension.

Get over it.

I choose to assume that people aren't being a dick to me and even if they are you will feel better about yourself (and hopefully give them a better outlook) if your response is respectful and uplifting. Think about the way little things affect you man. We all only have so many days and even little things can make or break them sometimes. Sometimes someone just nodding there head or saying something positive can make you feel pretty good for an entire day but someone flipping the bird will get you all stressed out and agitated. Like it nor not were all in this together man and if the people around you are happy you'll be happy and we will all be better of for it.

If someone treats you like **** your no better than them if you do the same to them. You cannot complain about there behavior after all it was more than likely caused by someone that did the same to them.

. . .And the reason I say that is because more likely than not this young kid is working as a valet driver to get by. He probably fell out of the car, felt like an idiot and the first thing that popped into his head was this car is to low. Nothing malicious there. Then after he already felt embarrassed you made him go down to the ground for a few bucks which he worked for (in an already less than glamorous profession) and apparently needed more than you. Think about how that affected him.
