I like this question. It seems to me that rudeness is a common thing amongst a lot of dive shops and boats. There is a sense of snobbery that I've felt from a lot of dive shops whose employees just blow you off or treat people in a condescending, uncaring manner. I don't understand why this attitude exists, but I've seen it in shops from North Carolina to Florida to here in SoCal. I don't understand why people selling a recreational experience are souring it for their customers, and I see this in boat captains and divemasters from time to time. I know it's a stressful thing and they have a lot to handle, but if you don't make it fun for your customers, what are you thinking?
As for the rude dive shops, off the top of my head I'd say the shop near Pico and Overland. I only went there once but the owner didn't even acknowledge me or say a single word as I browsed around. I felt like I was some unwelcome presence and left after a few minutes.
