    I don't think they could get away with acting like Nero does all the time. No one would want to hire them.

    I know, they have to make the character interesting, and it's based on the books, but if you think about it, people so negative and hard to put up with probably would have a lot of difficulty in a helping-people sort of business.

    If you really need that kind of help, you will put up with his kind of temperament.Besides, he is astonishingly good at what he does.

    Quite so, buy the best and cry once. Besides, no one hires Wolf for his charm, they hire him to fix the problem.

    Plus, most of the time, you get to deal with Archie, particularly if you are a woman (which has its compensations for both comely female clients and Archie).
