EPISODE 8.22: FUNDRAISER
Angela’s husband, the [State] Senator, hosts a fundraising dinner for animal rights activists. The recently fired Andy crashes the fundraiser, and in the middle of a mental breakdown, he ends up adopting 12 dogs.
My office once had someone who rescued dogs, sometimes 12 (or more) at a time. And just like on The Office, coworkers were sometimes persuaded to take some of the rescue dogs into their own homes.
The difference here is that my coworker ran a dog rescue; Andy just… snapped. He was fired, he had a mental breakdown, and then he dove right in for his dozen. I think the 12 in my office was more of a gradual build-up and (hopefully) wasn’t the result of a psychological crisis.
