It really gets my dander up when I am bending over backwards to find a resolution to a misunderstanding or miscommunication and the other party seems to view that as meaning they can get pushier or more rude.
Couple of campgrounds over the decades have come close to having me channel my inner red-neck in those type of situations, which boils down if no one explained to you growing up how to have a polite respectful conversation, I'm damn sure I can remedy that lack of education for you. In one case going elsewhere was an option and I told them what I thought of their manners, in the other that comes to mind manager was reminded they were informed of requirements, accepted reservation and now they should honor it. They did.
But those places seem to be rare, and since I generally go places that others have said they liked I just don't come across it. Mostly the opposite, CG staff willing to bend over backwards to help. That is what makes your situation seem so unpleasant.
Glad you found an alternative location.
