Meanwhile, if you're reading social media of any sort you probably noticed it's crankville here on the east end. The locals say the summer people are nasty and rude and the summer people say the same thing in reverse. Either way, it's tense out here and it's something my friend on Facebook "Robert" called "S.A.D." - Summer Affective Disorder. Although I've gotten accustomed to this seasonal fatigue we have a new honor here on the east end, Conde Nast Traveller placed the Hamptons in their "Top 10 Undfriendliest Places" in the U.S." It's enough to make someone move to Asbury Park... NOT! But let's be real here. It can be unfriendly but it's not too late. I'm asking everyone who reads this blog to take the following few steps and we can turn the Hamptons into the Stepford of beach communities in no time!
1 - Say "thank you." - Nobody is entitled to have a door open for them unless they're going into K-Mart's auto doors. If I hold a door for you, it's not an admission of your entitlement or my own social guilt. It's just a matter of being human! So pay it forward, just say "thank you!"

3- Smile and lighten up Frances! - It's summer and it's the Hamptons folks! DO YOU KNOW HOW LUCKY WE ARE?! There's nobody launching rockets at your house or depriving you of your ability to shop Citarella! Take a deep breathe, enjoy the moment and realize you're in one of the most spectacular places on the planet! Life can be a beach you just have to let it happen!
