Should i have gotten the manual, to you guys, does that change your take on a car once you find out its an automatic or is that just High school kids?
Considering when I was 17, I was driving a 1966 Plymouth Valiant without power steering, power brakes, or air conditioning because it was all I could afford, it might just be high school kids jealous of you.

Having said that, who cares what other people think about the choice you made? I think manuals are more fun to drive, but from a practical standpoint, I went with the DCT. I really don't care what anyone thinks about that here or anywhere. I don't need to justify myself to anyone.

It's a good life lesson for you - people are going to stick their nose in your business. Be gracious, and let it slide. Don't let people live rent-free in your head.
