Is There Aerial Lift Bridge Etiquette? Did I Deserve To Be Yelled At By The Bridge Operator?

I do not claim to be a Duluth native know-it-all, but I do want to be treated with respect.  Especially because the bridge operator didn't know if I was a local or a tourist and HE WAS RUDE!  I admit, I am unaware of any Aerial Lift Bridge etiquette, but I am willing to be schooled.  Who can help me to avoid sarcasm from the bridge operator again?
