Michelle Obama's prolonged stay at Oprah Winfrey's estate in Hawaii is not making the neighbor's happy.
Local shopkeepers have complained that the security roadblocks have stopped both customers and employees alike from getting to their stores.
An unidentified worker at Grandma's Maui Coffee told TMZ that their colleagues have been running late to work while the owner of Goble's Flower Farm lamented that some customers couldn't come inside because of the roadblocks.TMZ reports:
Some of the residents and business people around Oprah's palatial 12-bedroom Maui estate -- where Michelle recently retreated to spend the last few days of her 40s -- are all telling the same story ... Michelle's visit is making day-to-day life almost impossible.No comment from the White House, but I'm sure it would be something that, broken down to its basics, is that Michelle Obama's convenience and privacy is more important than the livelihoods of mere peasants.
The owner of nearby Goble's Flower Farm tells us ... security checkpoints have been set up on the roads ... blocking customers from shopping there.
Other business owners complain they can't stock their shelves because road closures have screwed up their deliveries.
A worker at Grandma's Maui Coffee tells us, employees are arriving VERY late to work.
And fun is also affected. Recreational areas (like hiking trails) have also been shut down.
