I can't speak for Mr. Hardin's business professionalism. However, I can say he isn't much of a Southern gentleman. He recently went into the neighboring business where my 68 year old mother works, yelled at her, and then threw a business yard sign down on the floor. When confronted by the female manager, Mr. Hardin unleashed a litany of racist comments regarding the ghetto, etc. (The manager is African American). This behavior is unacceptable in a civilized community. This event was document by Athens-Clarke County police report 13-08-0130 and is available to the public for authentication. I attempted to meet with Mr. Hardin resolve this matter in a civilized manner. However Mr. Hardin was ugly to me and is apparently satisfied being a bully to two women in the business complex. He is not the type of person with whom I would do business.
