arrogant staff paid with a less than egalitarian wage most likely

I read the profile page about this place being egalitarian but that's hogwash. There was this arrogant blonde staff with her nose held high (literally) as she poured wine in a glass for one customer and rung up my purchase. There was just this silence during the whole transaction and to break the silence after she handed me my receipt, I said thank you. She just had this bored blank face and said "your welcome" in this perfunctory way. I guess I was thanking her for my business or something. Arrogance doesn't give you class - especially when you are working in the service sector (the lowest paid of all sectors).
