Why are people so rude?

I just don't know why people are so freakin' rude sometimes! Friday night, I spent the night w/ my cousin and her friend at their shared house. They are early 20s and I am 18. They had a party and I met a lot of great people including a lot of people from my college that I had never met before. However there was one girl, age 21, named Tara, who was just MEAN to me. I don't get it. Apparently she is a friend of my cousin's friend...and she had this obsession w/ my being 18. I guess she thought I was too young to be there. I wasn't even drinking, just hanging out. In fact out of 15 people at the party I would say maybe HALF were drinking beer and the rest of us don't even like drinking or weren't in the mood for it. I was one of only 3 underage ppl there (the other 2 were 20) and Tara was all paranoid the whole night saying how we were going to get "busted" for me being there and why was I invited, etc, it was completely rude. I am the type of person who if I dont like someone I stay clear of them but this Tara person just kept hanging around me and asking me 1000 questions. "So how come you're 18 but you started college early are you some kind of genius" (said with a sarcastic evil laugh) "Why don't you have a bf is it because you're SO tall? I know guys seem to like short girls best" (I am 5'11 and have never had a problem getting a bf thank u very much - apparently she thought this comment was ok since she's "tall" too at maybe 5'9 or something) Tara also made rude comments about other ppl's weight, hairstyles, etc...usually to their face or in a roundabout way. She was not drunk either, I think she had 1 beer. Oh yeah another thing she did, whenever I would talk to anyone, guy or girl, she would make sure to come up and let them know I was 18. She acted like I was a person w/ an STD getting ready to have unprotected sex w/ them...like "OMG I HAVE to tell/warn u she is EIGHTEEN!" As though I were 11 or something!? My cousin and her friend didn't really notice this and I certainly didn't think it was their job to stop Tara from bothering me but really, what can u SAY to such a rude person? I felt like ignoring her was not helping but I was not about to get all bent out of shape and let her know she was getting to me. Why do ppl act that way? Honestly!? Rhiannon
PS Thanks for letting me vent :-)
