A. Accuse them of being immature children with emotional problems and demand that they work them out within fifteen minutes because you can't be bothered.
B. Take a second to analyze the team dynamics -- including your part in them -- and figure out which issues need to be addressed tonight, post-Boardroom.
C. Write off the women, because they're just silly anyway and don't have any concerns worth worrying about.
D. Write off the Jews because they're either going to be gone or worthless, because one time the Russian one looked at you funny and then you screamed at him in the Boardroom, proving you right for all time.
E. Jump immediately to figuring out how you and Tarek are going to cope now that Dan, the only other member of your team, is gone.
F. Emulate Dan in every way -- micromanaging tasks, refusing to delegate, and only trusting Tarek with anything important -- because he's got such a great fucking track record.
Answer Key: If you didn't answer B automatically, the board assumes that you instead answered A and C through F, inclusive, and therefore doesn't have the time to worry about your trifling ass one second longer.
Tarek, at this point, shows his ass mightily: "It doesn't matter if I do a good or bad job, I am going to get called out in the Boardroom." Which is true, for what it's worth, but I don't recall him having ever done anything besides play Dan's hall monitor, act very fussy and whiny, and come up with bad ideas, or no ideas whatsoever. I like him okay, but come on. Don't put yourself on shout like that. He floats that, instead, the reason for his targeting has less to do with his negative team value and more to do with...the jealousy, hatred, envy, and fear that he inspires in everyone in this world. Oh, fuck. Seriously? Tarek, where did you go? Why is Asshole Tarek back? I honestly thought he had adjusted in some way. Stupid me. Lee rolls his eyes, and Leslie and Charmaine laugh openly. He interviews that he's "honored" that they keep "coming after" him, because clearly it's not because he sucks -- it's because he rules so very much that the torches and pitchforks just kinda supply themselves. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but I do think the key to living well is being able to consider both sides of the equation at all times, and think about poking your own balloon every couple of minutes. Leslie explains to him that this is "highly insulting," both to the team and to the team members as individuals. I don't think he recognizes her, to be honest, but it's not like he'd listen anyway. He Hateful Jims that they are "a bunch of crazed coyotes" that are "going after the buffalo." I don't know what that means. You, sir, are no Hateful Jim.
