Oh, well, I sent this to you right after I spoke with him.  I was irritated with how he talked to me, but in retrospect, maybe he just didn’t know some facts yet.

He was patronizing, but he didn’t seem to realize that I live with all of the people on the Avengers Initiative along with several S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.  I didn’t enlighten him.  Perhaps that isn’t common knowledge?  He also seemed to think that Tony and Stark Industries are enormous charities that I’ve taken on.  That always irritates me because why would anyone think that I’m a CEO pro bono?  And why would living with Tony be a great sacrifice on my part?  He happens to be my best friend.

On the other hand, if I were to go around being irritated about how people view my relationship with Tony and his company, I’d be throwing things like a gorilla at every reporter on every interview.  It was unfair of me to expect that your new agent would have a different view than the one already in the media.  I do hope that everyone on S.H.I.E.L.D. realizes that Tony’s an actual person, though.

Anyway, that’s the long and short of it.  I hope everything’s going well over there!  Thanks for looking out for us.
