Without going too much into this (Bill in some cases is totally spot on, like for Dan Slott), but I think there's more to it, but can't put my finger on what exactly.
I doubt these men (and women) hate their jobs so much they have to be rude and obnoxious. But when Bill quotes something that happened 40 years ago, I see no relation with contemporary times (times changed since 1960s and 1970s).

What do you think?

Funt Solo:
Why are some people so damned abrasive?

 - They're having a bad day.
 - They're responding to an idiot.
 - They're in a position of power so social norms have become skewed.
 - They're taking you for granted.
 - They're damned abrasive.

I think this is the key.

Please expand.

Bill Willingham himself has something of a reputation. So I'm not entirely sure I'd read that substack without noting that going in.
