The facts are these: In The Office webisodes that have been airing over the past couple of weeks, Oscar has been pissed. He showed up to work and had an outburst on his cell phone in front of everyone. It sounded like a lovers' quarrel, but Oscar refused to tell anyone what he was so angry about.
Oscar has always seemed like one of the more intelligent, reasonable Dunder-Mifflin employees, so I find it completely mind-boggling that he thinks he can scream at someone in the middle of his crowded office, not tell anyone what the deal was, and expect them to respect his privacy. He works in an office. These people have nothing else going on in their lives.
In this week's webisode, the Dunder-Mifflin employees beat it out of him and we finally find out what the deal is with Oscar's outburst.
The video is posted below. Take a look and we'll discuss afterward:
So... the cable guy. What do you guys think about that? When I originally watched these, I had a suspicion that it would turn out to be something like that, so the big reveal was a little bit of a letdown for me. At first, when he was telling everyone about his trials with the cable company, I kind of thought he was lying; that he was just telling everyone the story of the cable guy to get them off his back and that he would do his interview and reveal the real, more interesting story. But, uh, I guess not.
Watching it again though, I can see how Oscar would be the type to overreact to something like this. Although dealing with the cable company is beyond annoying, as someone who moves once or twice a year, I can tell you that yelling isn't going to get you anywhere. In any case, I agree with Kelly: Oscar should win the Academy award for Best Over-reactor.
