Jay Pon was supposed to “help” my business parters and I when we moved to San Francisco.
Over the phone, he was courteous enough, and told us that he would help us find a place to open our business when we arrived in the city.
If you think you’ve ever met anyone condescending, think again. This guy takes the cake.
Not only did he spend a good portion of our time together explaining that we weren’t worth his time and that we were practically charity, he then went on to brag about how much money he’s used to making.
I’m sorry, but if we’re not worth your time, then why are we here?
After our wonderful first impression with the guy, he took us around town to show us where we should open our business.
Only he only showed us stuff that was either out of our price range, in the wrong part of town, or invisible from the street.
He either didn’t listen to a word we said or didn’t care. Either way, it was obvious to us that we were wasting each others time.
If all of this weren’t horrible enough, throw in a few racist and sexist comments about pedestrians we saw (and one that he almost hit!) and it was pretty much the worst afternoon of my life.
