Oscar's rage continues on The Office webisodes - VIDEOS

Ah, office gossip. It's kind of the best. Everybody knows that office jobs are soul-crushing endeavors, so it's imperative that you find something constructive on which to focus. That thing may be your job, but let's face it: it's probably not. Instead, it becomes the lives of those around you. People who, if you had your choice, you would never speak to, much less get involved in their lives, yet you end up spending more time with them than you do your own family.
In the first of The Office's new webisodes, Oscar gave his co-workers the gift of gossip when he was caught screaming at someone on the phone. In fairness, when you're on a cell phone and you're yelling in the middle of a crowded office, you kind of lose your expectation of privacy. Oscar, however, does not see it that way. He refused to explain himself, which naturally makes everyone all the more interested. This week, the investigation into Oscar's freakout continues.
In episode two, Kevin freaks me the hell out. I'm not the kind of person who gets all nervous and weird about public bathrooms and refuses to go until they're home, but at the same time, I don't think they're an appropriate place for socializing. The fact that the bathrooms at Dunder-Mifflin are in the break room has always grossed me out, but Kevin takes it a step further in episode 2:
Seriously. I don't even like to chew gum in the bathroom. Not only is Kevin talking to Oscar in the restroom, but he's hanging out with the door all open while Angela is trying to eat her salad. Gross.
In the newest webisode, Oscar gets fed up after people start going through his stuff. I'm amazed he even found out, though: everyone involved was soooo subtle.
Seriously, though, password-protected phones are the most annoying thing in the world. My boyfriend does it, and it makes me hate him a little bit. I must say, though, I'm a little disappointed that Oscar doesn't file anything under "illicit sex."
Now, as I've said, I love gossip, but I've never stooped so far as to go through someone's belongings. What's the most you've done in search of the truth?
