That's What She Said

Season Recap

Total Litigation Value: $6,635,500+

There is no doubt that the crew from Dunder Mifflin (primarily Michael) had some expensive snafus this season. In approximately 20 weeks, Michael managed to out a gay employee; announce his affair with a Vice President at the CFO’s party; invite a pervert dressed as Ben Franklin to an office party; invite a stripper to the warehouse; ask a female employee to act out a lesbian love scene during anti-harassment training; and lock his staff in a conference room. If you are thinking that no work place could possibly have this much drama, think again. Using each week’s episode as a starting point, I am going to post new entries every week with real-life examples of situations where truth was, indeed, stranger than fiction. Who knows? Maybe we can give Toby some ammunition to finally stand up to Michael. With just a little push, I think that Toby would be quite the adversary.

  1. Thanks for the great blog Julie! It’s become a tradition in my office to all gather around on Friday and discuss The Office and read your blog post. We look forward to the summer interlude and next season.

  2. This is a great blog and I am happy to have found it. However, I have a question about this recap post: Didn’t Jim order the Ben Franklin rather than the male stripper Michael wanted to get for the women? The guy was truly a historical speaker about Ben Franklin. It was people in The Office who asked him a load of perverted questions. Granted, he did get a little in to it at the end, but his character showing up was all Jim trying to prevent the disaster that Michael wanted to create by calling a real male stripper…

  3. Thanks, Julie for an entertaining and informative look at the many disasters of Dunder Mifflin. I hope you’ll be back next year!
