Indiana Jones and the Quest for the Salad Spinner

My friend and I decided to do some shopping in the town of East Hampton last weekend. We went into the General Home Store and we were immediately bumbarded by the obnoxious owner. I said that I was just looking for a simple salad spinner, because our rental house was lacking one. Instead of bringing me straight to the place where the salad spinners were, he decided to give my friend and I a complete tour of the overly crowded store.

Not only was there tons of merchandise, but there was barely any walking space. When we asked him for a salad spinner, it felt like we were shown every product in the store that began with the letter S.

My friend and I kept exchanging looks like, "What is WRONG with this guy?" After almost a half hour of being dragged around the store, and pushed to buy every product, he finally gave us the salad spinner we were looking for (and on top of all this, it was outrageously overpriced).

This man was the most obnoxious person I have ever met and needs to get a grip and realize he's a terrible salesman.

  1. I believe you're on the wrong website. The owner of that tacky store is no local, and neither are you.

  2. The owner of that store and the woman who runs it are obnoxious. The woman is rude to customers and I have even heard her speaking rudely to her staff in front of customers...talk about feeling awkward. The man has some obvious need for attention and Ritalin. The music makes me want to take a nap, not shop. The minute you walk in you feel the frigid air of disaster blowing over you. I can't wait for it to go under.

  3. Who said you have to be a local to complain about being rude in the Hamptons? There are rude people all over the place and some of them are locals. Some of them are store owners. Some of them are visitors.

  7. It should only be locals complaining on this site. Yes, we may be rude at times, but that is because you citiots are annoying and rude 99% of the time. You all think you are better than us, well go take you Mercedes and shove it!
