That sounds about right. I'm guessing you haven't lived in NYC before. Look, you're in NYC, the most competitive and intense city in the US, it's as dog eat dog as it gets in the US. If you can't stand this tour guide, you have absolutely no chance of surviving 1L in the big city. I suggest that you go to Syracuse where it will be more nurturing. But it's also a good challenge, if you can make it in NY, you cane make it anywhere because you really need a thick skin to get through the days. The tour guide is probably doing tours because he needs the money. At the same time, he's pissed off because every second he is doing the tour, another student is using that second to study and get ahead of him and finish at the top of the class. The tour guide is annoyed because if he does not finish at the top, he will have no job. So yeah, that's a good reason to be unhappy.
