Throughout my travels, I feel as though I have seen the most intense extremes of customer service. New York City store clerks and restaurant hosts want to get you served as fast as possible, and for the most part, show very little interest in your wellbeing as a customer. Go in, get your stuff, get out. Living in the big city has made me very used to this kind of behavior, and it never really came across as rude — I was used to impersonal, fast service, and came to expect that from everyone.
