Corporate wants to close the scranton branch and move the best of the best to New York.

Unfortunately Michael Scott is completely not helpful in telling them who the cream of the crop is.

Corporate has made deals with some Scrantonites. In exchange for information on their coworkers, corporate will give them a cushy job in New York. Scranton branch is aware of rats and each day will vote to fire one person in hopes of catching the rats.

Michael Scott is already the boss. Vote for who you want to fire today. Town wins if they get rid of all the company rats.

I download a lot of foreign shows, the Office is simply not one of them, therefore I didn't understand the first few posts in the topic and can't roleplay. This is apparently suspicious.

"Okay gang, let's vote on who we think is exposing all of our problems to corporate!' Michael says, holding up a cardboard box.

"Michael is this really the way to be doing this? This is a serious problem i think we should just talk it ou---"

"Shutup toby. I'm voting for you. Now let's talk this out, who is doing this?"

the rest of the day is interrupted by Michael Scott's terrible jokes, horrible email forwards, and table breakers. no one is amused and it in destroying any chance of moving forward.

"Maybe we should just vote out michael" kevin says with a devilish grin.

"God kevin stop being so stupid" ryan says "is anyone taking this seriously? Corporate is trying to ruin this branch and we are offering no solutions."

Michael then makes some inappropriate sexual comments about Ryan.

'okay guys, i have a great idea. Let's vote to fire michael."

"heyyy..." kevin begins to protest.

Michael checks the ballot box at the end of the day to see he has been voted out.

"you all voted for me? this is...anarchy. no, this is betrayal. I said vote for the corporate rats. How dare you. if i were the rat i'd just fire all of you myself and then get a cushy corporate job. I am not going to quit and you don't have the authority to fire me so screw you! I told you you can't get rid of me! We'll do this tomorrow and I expect some better votes!"


Michael Scott cannot be lynched. He won't fire himself. However, he was so hurt by this he has agreed to let someone else lead over this downsizing counterattack.

Elect a new mayor tomorrow.

no one is fired today.

Send me your nightmoves and send your complaints to the peanut gallery.

Later!
