He wasn’t nasty, he needed to have the frequency cleared for the issue at hand.
He was nasty, as is the case with most ATC in the US in/around major airports. They are generally rude, unhelpful, hysterical, and cause crashes to happen. The only good controller I’ve seen/heard so far was Patrick Harten who helped US Airways 1549.
Not a chance you are a pilot......and if you are you are unprofessional and that’s why they are most likely “mean” to you.
A few times In my career I have had a controller get snappy with me and it was my fault for screwing up.
