'Out' Takes

Episode 3: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor examines the HR nightmare that is Jeff Lewis Design.

on Sep 18, 20120

Jeff Lewis Design is a difficult place to work for a number of reasons, one of the most notable being the inappropriate office conversation. Basically it's an HR nightmare, and I don't think anyone envies Jenni in her new role as HR director. The levels of workplace lunacy seemed to reach an all-time high this week, so let's take a look at some of the most egregious offenses.

Coming to a Mushroom Head

Is it just me, or has Jeff been cracking a lot of dick jokes this season (Exhibit A)? Perhaps it's a result of his synergy with Andrew, who seems to make it way too easy. Who can say? In any event, this week was no exception as we learned when Jeff tried to pick out some new cabinet pulls. It all starts innocently enough, with Andrew saying one of the pulls is only 1.222 inches thick. But he manages to inject the sheer suggestion of naughtiness into his tone, which Jeff of course picks up on, and after that the floodgates open wide.

Suddenly it became a penis joke free-for-all and we're talking about bigger tips, mushrooming out, and that everyone can agree that they prefer black ones. Poor, quiet Vanina (more on her shortly) is just there chuckling in the background while Gage looks on in horror as Jeff and Andrew one up each other. These two have clearly mastered the art of maintaining a double entendre conversation for an obscenely long amount of time.

Side Note: Part of me thinks Jeff does this just to bother Gage.

Jeff is the problem.  There was plenty of inappropriate behavior, discussion and language before Andrew ever arrived on the scene.
