Being a long-time Whistler local, of 17 years might I add, I think I can confidently say I know where to go for breaky/Lunch when you're on your double work shift. I have been going to GONE bakery for well over 10 years, I remember going there for our favorite soup with grandma after ski lessons. Yesterday I chose to go to GONE for some soup on my lunch break; it was THE WORST, MOST UNPLEASANT experience I have EVER had there. I have never been talked to so rudely by the Australian cashier at the front , I was very kind and polite to her and she clearly ignored me when I was standing at the front for 5 minutes. She arrogantly greeted me and asked "what do you want?". I asked her a couple questions about the soup and she was very short and did not give me any answers about the ingredients, she didn't even know what was in the soup. I then asked her if she gave a local discount, because almost EVERYWHERE in whistler offers a 10% or 20% locals discount, I know the company I work for does. She said " no of course not, we never do that." which i found INCREDIBLY WEIRD because I have received a locals discount there MULTIPLE TIMES over the last 10 years.
Clearly the cashier was having a bad day and needed to take her anger out on a customer. All of the other staff were standing around chatting and gossiping to each other and completely ignoring the guests around them, I have never felt so unwelcome in a local establishment I have loved to go to for so long, It makes me sad that these foreign workers come into our town and treat us so poorly.
