Too Casual Greetings at Grocery Stores

When I walk into a downtown grocery store as a patron and approach you to order/purchase something, why in the hell are you, as an employee of said grocery store, greeting me with either "hey man" or "hey dude"?

How about you show your customers (regardless of whether they appear to be in your general age range) a token amount of respect and leave the buddy buddy stuff for your interactions with your weekend drinking crew. From the viewpoint of someone who has put in more than their fair share of time as a poorly paid customer service provider, I find that shit weak.

A simple "hello" or "hi" would be sufficient.
