LOL,happens all the time.I try to explain they are simple sequences of moves which you use to solve cases but for them it's just cheats or codes of some sort. Whenever they say that,just remind tham that you solve the first two layers intuitively.

Or you ask them if they could find the area of a circle in terms of pi without using the formula for it.

7. Or you ask them if they could find the area of a circle in terms of pi without using the formula for it.
Someone not willing to understand a cube wouldn't care much for a circle & a square.
Also,
It's surprising how even though without cubing one probably would know the word "intuition" when i say one can do it intuitively they get a completely blank look on their face like:
-What'd you just say?-

8. Back in Elementary:

Girl: "Justin Bieber is faster than you!!! You cannot beat him!"
LATER:

LATER IN HIGHSCHOOL:
*3x3x3 pops 5 pieces.*

Girl: "How do you if its right?"

My best friend asked me about my colored lunhui . He thought it was cheap and nasty fake because it didn't have stickers and it wrote dayan on it's logo. It took me ages for me to explain to him that dayan cubes are better(way better) than rubik's brands. And yet, he still thinks that i'm too cheap to buy rubik's brand cubes because they are pricier...

That's some good advice she gives you. (;
