Ewww, Saria, that dude is stoopid. And, you hit the nail on the head! If you were a guy or a less attractive female, he wouldn't GAF.
BF has a friend who harasses me constantly because he doesn't like the way I greet him.
A couple of weeks ago I saw him in the bank, said 'hello' and headed straight to the line. When he finally got in line behind me, he asked me, "Who do you think you are? Just say 'hello' but don't give me a kiss (on the cheek)?" I was like "......... (major side eye) I said 'hi' and that's all you'll get from this gringa." I know there is a cultural thing going on here, but he also knows I don't really like him, and only tolerate him because he is a great friend to BF.
A couple of days later, we had dinner with some friends in the restaurant where he works. He came out from behind the bar to say hi and proceeded to tell this story and make me look like a rude b*tch. My BF and friends were just looking at him while he was laughing like an idiot.

- Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you.
