That is so true! That's what I like too. He's really brilliant at it. I think he really is a good person deep down--okay, very deep down LOL!
He just cares so much about what his staff thinks about him, but he just always does the wrong things to "impress" them. And I think he's really lonely too.
I can't believe when it came down to it with that situation with the CEO, he actually did what he needed to do to save his and Jan's butts. During his little speech with the CEO, I thought Jan was going to fall over. I think she was floored that he was actually covering for them. Then, in the back of my mind, I thought, I bet she is going to hook up with him again. I couldn't believe I was at least partially right!
And it was interesting that that other guy totally f'ed up with not having his numbers. Makes you realize that Michael at least has his stuff together more or less. Even if he is a dufus most of the time. And that video! LOL! I almost peed my pants! It was inappropriate and kind of embarrassing, but it was also sort of sad and funny and sweet that he really thinks a lot of his office and really thinks they are a family.
