Deliverables every couple of hours. 2) Is the level of mentorship/coaching better at Amazon? 3) Is the offer reasonable?

Ladies, I’m posting here so that the person involved won’t see this post. Last year, I worked under this one first year senior guy. One day, he told me that to him, his staff are like puppies, if they pee on the floor (aka mess up on something) then he gotta be the one cleaning up then proceed to call me one of his puppies. Is it normal that I’m offended by this analogy and considered it condescending? English wasn’t my first language so not sure if this is acceptable by American culture.
