I have been seeing online a lot of people who work in the food industry, especially the servers, have been getting. a lot of flack from customers coming into their restaurant and treating their staff very badly. Brandi Felt Castellano, the owner of Apt Cape Cod posted this on Facebook

 Apt wrote on Facebook on July 8, saying they would take a day to deep clean, train, and treat the staff to a day of kindness.

“Please remember that many of my staff are young, this is their first job, or summer job to help pay for college. We have had to make adjustments due to the increase in business volume, size of kitchen, product availability and staffing availability, we are not trying to ruin anyone’s vacation or day off.”

Not everyone has been abusive customers and folks showed an outpouring of love and support to the group at the Apt  Cape Cod.

This is just not happening here, other beach towns and tourist destinations have reported dealing with more entitled, abusive customers. Staff at Pop Pop’s Pit BBQ in Myrtle Beach say it’s gotten so bad they now read agreements to customers before they order, stating that patrons will be asked to leave if they’re rude more than once.

Unfortunately, customers everywhere seem to be taking it upon themselves to be jerks to food service workers, whether it’s scamming restaurants for free delivery, or complaining about maintaining safety protocols.

As a customer, you should first of all never treat another human being so bad and two they do have the right to refuse to serve you.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
