Just listened to it live at 18:32GMT on the WSSS Feed.

If anyone wants to listen to that later.

He was really rude about saying where he was on the taxiiway.  You get that a lot from the english speaking pilots that work for middle eastern carriers.

I found what you are referencing here, but I hear a lot more frustration in the pilot's voice than I hear rudeness.

There were some communication issues in the beginning of the clip. It was hard to discern "line up and wait" from the controller's transmission. After Qatar tried to confirm that instruction, the controller came back asking what his callsign was, and then again what his position was. Once things got straightened out, the pilot sounded normal to me.
