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 sorry...do 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.
