I think nowhere we can get a bad bad bad situation as my friend. She is from the big city in the south. She went to my city for work, in the north area. She and i was so happy to going out, drink coffee and chatting. Then we decided to eat "bun", one kind of traditional noodle in here, in the sidewalk. In here, people prefer to eat street food, especially traditional types as "bun". My friend and i keep talking, and she just told me that why restaurant in the north is very small, customers have to take a seat on sidewalk, sellers look so serious and not friendly with customers at all. And she told about how large restaurant in her city, seller always smiles, they are so friendly to ask and say thank to customers...but suddenly she and I heard the woman seller told, it is translated to English as below "Shut up, clear out to the south for eating, why being in here and disparage it". OMG, I could not understand why that woman could told bad words to us. My friend was shock, and me too. We stood up and left that restaurant. Later, when she is in her city, she told me that she is still shock about that situation and she is afraid of going to the north for work. I am very ashamed about it.

That is too bad ryanong, people should be able to express themselves without fear... As the restaurant owner that lady should have heard your message and learned to be more polite and friendly, then she would have at least Two more happy customers and telling their friends about the restaurant too...

Yes, that woman seller is very rude. She is selfish too, i think. But what should i do, because there are many seller like her in there. She thinks that even she did like that, customers still comes to her restaurant so that her behavior is terrible. However, i wont go to there to eat "bun" even though her "bun" is delicious. Eating nice food and we need a good service too.

Well I belive social change starts with one person... Not only should you not go to her cafe anymore you should tell everyone you know to do the same (if thats allowed in your country)... Then if you know of a better place tell all your friends about that place... In fact just to make an example of her I would get a small group of friends together and plan an evening out for "Bun"... All of you show up outside her place and tell her you are all comming out this evening to eat... When she gets excited very calmly tell her, " Oh We Would Never Eat Here You Are Just To Mean and Rude"... We are going to a better place, "Good Bye"... Lol... Well thats just me anyway...

yes, your are right social communication should be changed and its change starts with one by one person, but honestly i think it takes a long time to change in here. I feel that people in my city, especially the seller are selfish and never wanna to learn. They just keep their behavior like that. Sure, i wont come back her restaurant, no more. But it is very crowd in my city, so that even when i don't come, my friends don't come, there are still people from anywhere may com to eat in her restaurant. So i hope she may change her behavior one day but may long long time later when no one wanna come back her restaurant anymore. No, i wont talk with her as you told me, she may shout to me, i scare. And i ensure that i still get many bad situations like that in here...hix

Wow! It is so horrible to meet that restaurant lady boss who is so irritable.We are also shock about this action, as customer we had treated bad service and shout rude words. Compare to delicious bun to rude service, we can easy to choose comfortable place to eat, because your product mustn't be sole, the market can help us punishing their rude, they don't run business focus on client feeling.I think their restaurant will deduct to anyone they want to good service and food, they can't endure scorn. If I meet this condition, I will do like yours. Don't argue with boss ladies they are also irrational person and get angry very soon.But I have a litte sorrow about their actions.Maybe their work so hard, and they shoud afford many work to continue their living. In the ordinary living, everyone has their personality difficulty and awkward. If everyon become gentle, maybe person interaction are harmony. So I also think anyone don't like others criticize face to face. like that they feel very embarrasssed.

Yes, of course we don't like that bad behavior. But in my city, it is too crowd and people coming from anywhere around, so that some still keep their rudeness and be selfish. In their mind, customers may need them, they don't need customers at all, they still can earn money enough for living...Unfortunately, there are many ladies behave as that boss lady in here...I am so sad about it. I am afraid of fighting, so that i always try to avoid it. For sure i wont go back to that restaurant more. As you said, even though "bun" in there is delicious but we need a good service too. I rather choose a restaurant that "Bun" is not really delicious but the seller always smiles and has polite behavior. Thank you so much for your sharing...^^
