    So I have this manufacturer that reaches out every year to "get me on board" with all of their customers that need my services

    They want me to sign documents before they can "legally" work with me or refer customers

    Typically I refuse to sign anything and it usually ends until next year but this time it escalated to 4 back and forth emails....

    In the end they said I was very unprofessional and they wouldn't let their customers use me because I'm not the type of professional they want representing them...they will find someone else

    Any guesses what company this was? C'mon...lets play!

    here's the latest excerpt:

    Scott,
    I would lean towards thinking it was USSC?

    My $0.02 worth; Really - they reach out to you then submit you to that kind of nonsense? Considering the guy who wrote the email you quoted can't even put together a single coherent sentence and obviously is not a rational being, I think you should just tell them to f' off - 'course you already pretty much did that did that in your response :) They obviously need you more than you them... What kind of bizarre game are they playing? Don't waste another minute on them.

    When you hit reply? Nothing comes up?

    Cant say I am shocked? Look at all the problems they have with the Baby? That stove is a disaster. I wouldn't want to have part in a company that produces such a sub par product.

    Your better than that. We know that. Your customers know that. Cheers. Keep on keepin on Bro ;)

    I re-read your original post... that guy is on a major power trip. He calls you unprofessional then asks you in the end to reconsider to sign on board. Sounds like a dumb Napoleon...
