Not all bridge operators are polite, and courteous. I had to have an extended on air "discussion" with a bridge operator that that insisted my boat, (with 20' flybridge) could fit under a 15' bridge if I removed the bimini, and all antennas, (and I guess my flybridge TOO). Then insisted I was going over no wake speed, (I was going 5 kts), so I slowed to 4kts, He then yelled at me for "taking too long".

The bridge has since been removed, so maybe he was upset at losing job?
