I suppose, too, that he meant to be kind, while being exasperated.
I like the idea that the Bingleys and the Darcys met via the late Mr Bingley's trade, that would have been related to Pemberley (for instance, a wool trader, Pemberley growing sheep).
The Bingley sisters didn't really need Mr Darcy to meet people of rank, as we are told that they "had been educated in one of the first private seminaries in town" : there they may have cultivated relationships with fellow alumnae of rank and/or consequence.
