My guess is that, at best, she was being unhelpful, and, at worst, she was 
being rude.  The "you're just not looking hard enough" response somehow 
implies that the speaker has found it and you haven't.  But where I come 
from (kingdom of the West) Laurels are supposed to be part of the solution, 
not part of the problem.
