Accusations of Bestiality outside Bobby Vans

I had lunch outside of Bobby Vans a few weeks ago. Was told that I needed to tie my dog at a near by bench because dogs were not allowed under the table. No problem, I understood.

So I tied my little poodle/bichon on a bench about 2 feet away so I could be close to her. A man went to sit on the bench, shoved my tiny poodle aside so she wouldn't be close to him. After I told him he had nerve shoving a small dog he proceeded to say she was trying to sniff his crotch (which wasn't true). Anyway I brought attention to what a jerk he was. If my husband were there I doubt he would have pulled that stunt.

Look who's nesting in the Piping Plovers nest

Nice to see humans exerting their dominate position in the food chain.

Blind spots on Three Mile Harbor road

A number of years ago, this was the rudest thing that happened to me and my husband.

We were at the intersection of Springs Fireplace Road and Three Mile Harbor road when a large suv swung in on our right and purposely blocked our view so we couldn't see if any traffic was coming down Three Mile Harbor road. He sat there for at least 4 or 5 minutes so we just took our chance and pulled out onto the road.

We didn't dare challenge him as there are so many crazies out there.

Can everyone just be nice?

I have been enjoying some of the stories on your website.

I notice there are very few if any stories of rude people that live out here full-time. I am sick of the loud, jersey shore type thumping music that our "local" neighbors grown kids play all weekend out here. I cannot believe how much is charged for the most simple service yet still it's never done. How lazy and resentful have people gotten?

Two weeks ago my friend and I were shopping at the Sag Harbor Surf shop and asking the nice cashier about all the various sunscreens during our checkout. I suppose we took too long for the young locals behind us as they rudely and loudly muttered "Tourists."

I can assure you; we are far from tourists here and even if we were what does that even matter?  I think it's time to realize that it's best not to be so bitter with each other whatever the reason.

Life is too short and so is summer!

Citizens on patrol in Southampton

About 6 yrs ago, my husband who is a volunteer fireman, while camping at Coopers Beach attending the Southampton muster.
This little old lady with her VW bug was turning around in the parking lot. She hit a truck, hit the same truck again in her attempt to turn around and was about to leave the parking lot. So a bunch of us decided to stand in front of her car so she couldn't leave.

She told us that "she was late for her tennis lesson" and wanted to leave.

We just waited for the police to arrive and the owner of the truck to arrive as we stood in front of her car so she couldn't leave!

So that was my "Rude in the Hamptons" Story

Wear your pee pants to see Colin Quinn at Guild Hall

Just got back from seeing Colin Quinn in Long Story Short at Guild Hall.

What a great performance especially for the Hamptons. Colin provides some hilarious insight into the human psych and it's highly applicable to the rude behavior out here.

If you have time, check him out.

Watch out for land mines at Main Beach

It's come to our attention that some really rude behavior is happening down at Main Beach.

Yes, the Main Beach that's the number four best beach in America.

Apparently there are people walking their dogs in the early morning and late evening and not cleaning up after them. That leaves everyone else to fend for themselves.

We're wondering if any solid citizens could go and take some photos or video of this happening and we'll post them here. Let's leverage public shame as a tool against the illegal dumpers.

Yo Adrian...check out this outdoor ring

Hearing from a reliable source that down in Springs there are backyard boxing matches being held on a regular basis. In a clearing behind a house the spectators line up and two dudes punch each other to a bloody finish.

Calling the 2011 Summer

It’s officially spring and what I’m wondering is what will the 2011 Hamptons summer season bring from a rudeness rating?

Right about now the renters are taking their tours with realtors to find their dream rental home and the owners are getting their estates all gussied up.

Realtors please share your stories.

Will the reports of rudeness will beat last year?

We’ve got more bumper stickers waiting for you to share your story with us.

Paranoid Profiling Employees in the Emporium

On a snowy December morning I rushed to The Emporium in Sag Harbor to get a part for a failed toilet. The store had not opened on time and I had to wait outside with other customers.

I was looking in the plumbing department for the needed part and noticed that the help was carefully avoiding offering to help me. I continued my search and heard from behind me one of the young gentlemen employed there saying loudly, "I'm going for coffee" then refering to me in the other aisle he said, "watch him," like I was some kind of potential thief.

After he left I found the part I was looking for and went to pay. A teenage boy was at the counter with an embarrassed look on his face and I said to him, "I was offended by the comment 'watch him' when he should have said 'can I help you?'"

This group of youthful employees are rude and have an "attitude" when it comes to being helped. This is not the first time I have observed this in this store. In all fairness, I must say that another employee did go out of his way to help me at another time but the general feeling I get in this store is disdain for the customers.

I am an East End retailer and would never treat my customers this way. I grew up in Sag Harbor and I think the young employees of this store need an attitude adjustment. They are not even a shadow of the old Emporium or Barry's Hardware.

Pretend Deaf Customer Service In WHB

Going into Beach Bakery in Westhampton Beach this Saturday, I didn't expect to find any rude people, since it is the beginning of November and the summer people are long gone--boy, was I wrong!

I go to the self-serve coffee area to make myself and my collegue a cup of coffee.  I notice the both the half-and-half and non-fat milk containers are empty.  The girl at the register is busy ringing someone up, so I look for other assistance.  There is another girl behind the counter; looks like she was cleaning something up behind the counter.

"Excuse me", I say meekly.  No answer.  "Um, I'm sorry...excuse me", I say again.  Again, no answer.  I try a bit louder: "Excuse me...I'm you have more milk?"

She does not answer, but this time, she looks in my direction and continues doing whatever it is she is doing back there.  One more time..."Uh..excuse me?  You're out of non-fat and half-and-half....", again, NOTHING!  Finally, I look her staight in the eye, and say, "Can you hear me?" I swear to God for a moment there, I thought maybe she was deaf!

She finally answers snidley, "Yeah, I can hear you fine, I'm just busy!", and proceeds to WALK AWAY.

I left my coffee on the counter and walked out the door.

Old Montauk continues to fade away

I would just like to make a comment on the beautiful south shore of Long Island. When I was a child my mom and dad took me out to Amagansett and we stayed in Gansett green (over 40 years ago).

Over the years I have gone out to Montauk multiple times every year. Realized years ago that "the Hamptons" is not the place for me. Love the small town feel of Montauk and respect the natural beauty and therefore the year round residents wanting to keep it the way it has been for years and years.

I have stayed in many different hotels in montauk. Recently the Montauk Yacht Club (which I have stayed many times) did a complete renovation. After the renovation, the rates went up by approx. 300%

A room now costs $600 per night.

This is ridiculous and what I believe will be the reason why this resort will only have rude, "entitled" guests to stay at this resort. Not that all people who can afford to spend$600 per night for a room are rude, but I believe this marks the downfall of the beautiful Montauk area if average hard working people can not enjoy this area.

I don't know if I have explained myself correctly, but I am not one to write such comments, so my fingers are beginning to cramp up.

Hoping to enjoy many more relaxing times out in Montauk, but no longer at the Montauk Yacht Club.
