Does this mean I should stay off waves that break to the left until I get a bit better

Last week I was out on a fairly light day and was just trying to catch any wave I could. My experience level is low, so I usually try to keep an eye on the more experienced people in the line up and let them get first choice on a set of swells. I usually try to pick up the waves that aren't being "fought" after. Anyways, I was paddling to catch this wave and I noticed one other person trying as well. Well, we both ended up catching it apparently and this person proceeded to bitch me out because I was "supposed to let the person closest to the break" take the ride. First off, I haven't heard this before. Secondly, I don't have eyes in the back of my head and therefore had no idea they were even there. To add insult to injury, the person decided to point out that "it's obvious I'm just learning" and that "I'm lucky it wasn't someone more aggressive, otherwise I would have been in a fight."
So, my question is, was I wrong? If so, what do I do to correct it.
Also, let me toss this question as well. I surf goofy foot and therefore find it a little easier to catch waves that are breaking to my right. Does this mean I should stay off waves that break to the left until I get a bit better?
