Brian Jeffrey Patterson / Arrogant & disrespectful

United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Unfortunately there are many of these arrogant programmers out there that think they are god's gift to the human race. They are difficult to deal with & think they are better than everyone else.

I feel Brian is just one of these types.

He applied to our hiring ad on odesk for a PHP programmer & we were to set up an interview, but things went south from there when I told Brian it would have to be tomorrow as I had a very busy day today.

We asked him for his e-mail address as I had to send him something & for some reason Brian didn't like that request because he ignored it. Then the next response felt to me like he was trying to push his way through our screening process. I could feel that Brian had no patience.

Even before that I felt him resisting, as he arrogantly made a joke about one of our hiring ad questions in his bid.

So if you are going to hire him, I suggest you take the time to really vet him so he doesn't try to control you.

When I told him he hadn't given me his e-mail address & asked him why he hadn't, his arrogant disrespectful response was, "Hmm... Scrolling back through our conversation (as you can easily do yourself) the only thing you requested was my skype address. I gave you my cell phone number in my original post.

I really don't have time for games. I already discounted my rate from 50 to 30. But seeing as I can already see you would be what I call a "pain in the ###" client.

I withdraw my application.

Best of Luck. "

So he swears at me & says I'm difficult & playing games because he "thinks" he knows what's going on over in our company. That alone should speak volumes of his personality.

Sure Brian has a right to withdraw his application & we also have the right to let other companies know how he reacts when he doesn't get his way.

Brian, you don't control our screening process, we do. No one is playing games here just because they don't RUSH to give you what you want exactly when you want it. WOW. I guess with that behavior Brian is the client & we are his lowly servants.

Brian, we didn't ask you for your phone number & even if we did, what has that got to do with asking you for your e-mail address? Brian, telling us how we should contact you & what steps we should take to hire someone is outside your responsibility. You do NOT own our company. While he didn't tell us verbally how to run our company & run our screening process, based on what he said & how he reacted tells me he thinks he knows best.

You see more arrogance when he tells me I could have just scrolled up LOL, scrolled up to see what? We asked you for your e-mail address. If you had given it to me before, I couldn't see it at first glance & you should have told me (he never gave it to me).

And then he has the nerve to tell us that he discounted his rate as if we should bow down to him? <I'm shaking my head over the way Brian's head thinks> We didn't ask for the rate to be discounted & even if we did, you DON'T treat management this way.

Now we know why Brian is a freelancer & doesn't hold a ongoing position with a company.

All the best to you too Brian.

Michelle

    BTW I never even worked for this crazy person. Never even sent more than a few emails back and forth before I realized she was either drunk or on drugs. Her emails were incoherent at best. I told her to please stop harrassing me as she kept requesting my contact info over and over even though I had already given it to her. Now she packed a few more bowls of meth and wrote this crazy story about me. I am not even going to read it. Way to go psycho lady, now your ESCORT SERVICE that you run is going to be investigated by the FBI and shut down AFTER I sue your crooked drunk high ### for everything you got... NUTBAG.

    Who really cares about Michelle's business experience with other people ?
    How does anyone have this much time to write long negative (and mostly fabricated) stories about others ?
    Happy people spread, share and encourage happiness, miserable people look for ways to make others miserable and sour, You cannot share or give what you don't have.
    If you have been flamed by Michelle (like I have been), my advice to you is to NOT take her seriously, I think she has done a good job of letting the public know who she is.
    Without repentance, her wickedness with catch up to her someday.
    To Michelle, it is not too late for you look within, seek help and deal with your issues so you can be set free from your wicked ways. Spend the time you spend trying to destroy others on yourself, maybe go to college and improve your life, Get a diploma or two writing constructive essays or articles or something. Do something POSITIVE with your God given talent which you will someday account to Him for someday.

    Wow, Brian Patterson is even crazier than I thought. That's what I love about the Internet, you can really tell a person's true personality online.

    Not that I need to defend myself since clearly Brian rants & raves, but I don't do drugs, drink almost any alcohol unless you count once a year & I didn't repeatedly ask Brian for anything although we don't hire people who try to hide who they are. That's suspicious in its own right.

    Oh & lastly, I don't run an escort service.

    As for Ms Windsorite there. That is Abi Afolabi from Windsor, Ontario.

    You can read all about her here... http://rentinginontario.com/negative-experiences-with-the-real-estate-industry/abiola-afolabi-in-windsor/

    I will be updating the thread to note that Abi is continuously following me & my reviews all over the Internet, yet somehow she talks about me wasting my time. I don't stalk people online. I write one review when people are mean spirited & disrespect the boss & that's IT!

    Keep it up Abi.

    Exotic Publishing By Michelle Korn Is A SCAM
    Exotic Publishing at 266 Elmwood Ave. Buffalo, New York.14222 US/Canada/UK 800-342-3574 operated by Michelle Korn is NOT a honest company/person. She also has the following websites that she is runs or is affiliated with:
    http://www.exoticpublishing.com/
    http://escortlawreview.com/
    http://michellereviewsescortagencies.com
    http://becomeanescort.com/


    The reason this company is bad to deal with is because of its methods of dealing with customers. The dishonest situation that occured was that a customer would order a book and then Michelle Korn at Exotic Publishing would send the customer a notice saying your information will remain private and they will not share it. However, Michelle Korn of Exotic Publishing will post customers full info (phone numbers, addresses and other private info) without a customers permission or knowledage. She is endangering anyone who has business dealings with her that do not iron out the way she wants it to be.

    She is in violation with her own so called company statements. As well she is breaking customer privacy laws. You can see her bad business practices at: http://michellereviewsescortagencies.com/category/people-who-cost-us-money/
    Michelle Korn of Exotic Publishing is a VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY BAD to deal with. Michelle Korn is very vindictive and if you read her board you will see she is a raging madcap who should not be in business if she does not know how to handle customers who are not happy about something.

    I have even had the opportunity to speak with everyone who had a dealing with Michelle whom she posted wrongfully on her board and upon hearing their side of the story it is clear that everything Michelle said at michellereviewsescortagencies.com did not happen the way she said it did.

    Most of the ones she is flaming on her website at michellereviewsescortagencies.com said that they asked for their money back when they encountered her unfriendly manner and to their surprise Michelle Korn turned even more belligerent towards them. One of the customers mentioned that when they called her she was immediately unfriendly and harsh to them and was quick to be flipant at the mouth about how much her time was important and she trailed off into a self absorbant story about her expectations.

    Just read her website at michellereviewsescortagencies.com and it will clearly identify that this person is defensive, unstable and should not be dealing with people's private information.

    Sounds to be that Michelle is some dead end admin in some bloated officious and bureaucratic company...

    I was googling brian after hiring him recently.

    I hired brian for something i needed in a big hurry on odesk. fast, perfect and no BS. I hire a lot on odesk and take no prisoners given the awful quality i've found there. I will be hiring him again and I'm kickign out a bonus.

    Don't talk to management that way? huh? Respect is NOT AUTOMATIC. and any coder there is just as free to refuse to work with you as vice versa. I'm a hirer, and found him perfect. I've run global marketing in 3 major companies, I've ran North America for a social network, I've been abotu the block - and I can tell you I regularly tell multi-millionaire, and even billionaire owners where to put it.

    If you are that good, you can. And i think Brian is that good. And most importantly for me as I have zero time - EASY TO DEAL WITH. Give him a problem and a check and thats it - no 101 stupid questions (which often take longer to answer than to fix the original problem.)

    On my latest start up, once it has decent money I WILL COMING LOOKING FOR HIM. Not cheap and takes no bs - but that goes with the territory when you are working with anyone good.

    He's a breath of fresh air!

    She also now goes by ep2002. She believes I am the one writing all the bad things about her when I only wrote one entry and just spread or help circulate what others have to say about her. The post she claims I or my relative wrote is full of words we never use. She has a blog on me inciting delinquent tenants like herself to go on it and post lies about me. So far no respectable reasonable business person has posted on it. She is yet to forward the balance of my rent that she promised to forward when her business does/did better. The matter is steadily progressing in court and I will update this site of the result. Eventually the law and justice do catch up to the the evil doers. I pray for Michelle's repentance and salvation of her soul

    Michelle still owes me rent which she promised to send to me. I did not pursue her as sheis one of thousands that take advantage of landlords but she decided to do the blog anyway. While I am working through the legal path to get the blog taken down, I wonder what Michelle has to say about the rent she still owes.

    Update:
    The blog where Michelle defamed me is no longer up, I hope it is a step in the right direction.
    Michelle now needs to delete ALL defaming posts she may have on me everywhere else including on this board for me not to publish the Blog intended to address all the defamers she recruited on her blog.
    My own blog will not be about lies or opinions, it will contain documents to let the public know my own side of the story which is the truth.
    The investigation continues to locate Michelle should she attempt another defamation scheme on me, she cannot be trusted.
    On yeah and it would be nice if she would email me the money she owes me too especially since she promised she would pay it. That would show that she is actually trying to do the right thing and I will be prompt to post it here,
