To be fair, "Bugs" are an order of insects, not all insects are Bugs, if we're going by scientific slang. However, in layman's terms, bugs are any non-aquatic Arthropod. Just as consumer definition differs from industry definitions, most popular definitions differ from their scientific definition, like how fruit and vegetable are a popular/culinary form of organization and not the same as how science would organize certain vegetation.

You should have asked him what the defining characteristics of a bug were. You blew it!!!

It happened to me once.
At my parents house there was a strong wind coming towards the attic-window. The pine-tree in the backyard had a lot of lice, and some of them were blown into the room. When I entered the room I looked at my laptop and there were lice inside the screen, a whole bunch of them. I was not sure whether they were attracted by the warmth, the light or something else.
I just turned off the laptop, turned on a warm bright light right next to it and the next day, ony 2 lice had died in the screen, the others had left (eww).

Que the guy who doesn't understand a single thing of what either of us said but comes along with a "ya, what he said".
Bugs are characterized by their tough forewings, lack teeth and have a stylet.
Insects are characterized by three-part bodies, usually two pairs of wings, and three pairs of legs.
Everyone run for cover! The durpocalypse has begun!

Way to conveniently omit the last sentence of that dictionary.com definition...
All of this does not mean that you are wrong to call various insects bugs; because of the common usage of this meaning, it is certainly acceptable.

I suppose you're referring to Hemiptera, aka true bugs. That's certainly not as different from Hymenoptera as amphibians are from reptiles, but more importantly, every single reference I found gave the first definition of "bug" to include virtually all non-crustacean arthropods, sometimes more or less narrowly, but universally including virtually the entirety of insects, including hymenoptera (ants are frequently specified).
I suppose it's possible the "not a bug, but an ant" comment knew this, but if so, it's deliberately derpy wording, probably designed to draw out anyone who didn't get the science reference. I'm not entirely sure I would look down my nose at someone for assuming the far more common definition of "bug," especially when it's given no qualifier like "true bug."
