It was instructive on how to deal with Tiny.
See, this is the pattern of his life. As a real estate developer, he'd go to investors and make his pitch. Maybe one out of twelve would be interested. Anybody who wasn't, he'd simply drop and move on. Like any grifter, he knows there's always another chump just round the corner.
Now, however, he's faced with people who don't buy his lies, and don't go away. And now he has a powerful person who is not giving in to his BS, ignores his tantrums and threats, and tells him he can deal like an adult, or get nothing. And the longer he bluffs and blusters, the worse he looks.
So, like any grifter whose con is blown, he folds his hand and slinks away.
