Sorry to hear you had a bad experience -- but even in an agency with the best of reputations, there's always the possibility of the bad/incompetent agent. Heck, the person who works on the other side of the cubicle wall from me trained with a huge agency out here in LA in their literary division and did spend some time as an assistant/associate agent (according to her).
Given how many of her messes I've had to clean up, how poor her follow-up is, and the generally sloppy level of her work, I'm not surprised she's no longer with them and the very idea of her being anywhere near a manuscript gives me the willies.
Oh, I'd smack 'em up one side the head too if I ran into this guy again.
