    When potential tourists get harassed at the airport then get get the cold shoulder from anyone working in customer service, will they be feeling the love then?

  2. Wondering says:

    It all starts with the rude Custom officers at the airport. Once they get past Good morning or Good afternoon ,it’s the hell with you. now wonder people don’t come to Bermuda to vacation. Feel the live , it’s run from the crime.

  3. Absolutely agree! says:

    It only takes one Customs Officer having a bad day to make a permanent impression on locals and visitors. Far too often, the Officers have an extremely bad disposition and they take it out on people who come to this island to enjoy themselves and put money back into the economy! and as a local, I am totally embarassed at their attitude. I must say that on the odd occasion when there are pleasant Custom Officers on duty, it makes quite a positive impression. NOTE TO IMMIGRATION Department: Get rid of those sour faced, ill-tempered staff members that continue to give your department a bad name and Bermuda a bad reputation for goodness sake!
