it was amazing

This guardian is one of the most selfish and greediest ones the Baudelaires have had, it is not surprising that he wasn't killed in the end.

As in the other books, the adults are deceived by the appearances, thinking that the rude and cruel people are the nicest people on earth. The ones that are really nice people and try to help turn out to be helpless or spinless when the situation needs them the most.

Here the Baudelaires are gaining more the reputation as "troublemakers", which is really unfair, just because things don't come out as adults want, they blame them for them in lieu of really shouldering the responsibility for their care as true guardians. In fact, I think that this guardian only wanted employees for free, spending the less in handwork, taking advantage of his employees naivety about the work regulations (just read the part where Phil read one of them), even washing his hands about the Baudelaires' problems, getting quickly to the conclusion that they are troublemakers because they bring an "inordinate" bad luck.
