It wasn't that he was cruel, he just didn't give a damn what you thought. And he was blunt. Whatever he wanted from you he just told you straight, he didn't try to sugar-coat it or bargain. And after only minutes of a conversation the annoyance of having to converse showed on his face, even if he'd initiated it. His mouth was set in a permanent scowl and offering help even when it was obviously needed was not in his nature. HIs one redeeming feature was that he could fix anything, computers, TV's, toasters.
