Being in a beach community and owning a business, I have some tourists as my customers. I have seen the good and the bad. My favorite is the ones that come in, get nasty, and then tell me if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't have a business. Excuse me - you are wrong! I have a business because 12 months out of the year, the locals support me. They are the ones who are willing to give my name out to others, and they are the ones that recommend my business. They are the ones that support me during the year, not you. You are more than welcome in my business and I will do my best to serve you as if you were my regular customer, but please, don't be condescending and act like you are the only reason I am here. You are not! Come and enjoy the area and have a good time. But remember - many of us live here yearlong and we still have to go to work, so we are not on your time, and one more thing - you are here on vacation and don't have a certain time you have to be somewhere - I do so give me some consideration while you are on the road.
