I have to say it was a little weird finding out this week that everyone knew about the nanny cam being installed with the exception of Jenni, Chris, and I. I mean, even Ryan's Angels (who are as deliciously delightful as they seem) knew about it!
There is truth in Jeff's comment early in the episode that the atmosphere in his office, as compared to Ryan's, tends to be a little more tense. He goes on to say: "And then there's my family. At least, you know, we keep it real over here. We're screaming at each other, we're threatening each other, we're quitting, we're firing. It just seems to me like that's really the way a work environment should be." Huh? Really? Come again? Personally, I've never worked for anyone that believed something like that. It's still hard for me to wrap my head around the concept.
I still don't really get why the nanny cam had to be installed and why we couldn't have all just talked about Jeff's concerns that the work wasn't being completed to his liking. Together. As a team. It seemed like a really dramatic, circuitous way of getting to the core of the problem. At the time, I wasn't aware that things weren't getting done as Jeff wanted them to be done. Jeff would circle the items on the list he needed accomplished on that day and then Chris and I would divide them up (this was on the days when we worked together. We didn't always work together). I was still pretty new at that point and to my knowledge everything had been getting done because we hadn't been told otherwise.
