Ah, young Ryan... you will go even longer without making a sale at DM... but you will become Michael's boss. So all okay in the end.
This is really Packer in all his.... anti-glory. You have him down so much it makes me siver with disgust.
I always wondered how Packer made sales. Now I know.
Oh Ryan, gay men are the least of your troubles. Michael is the real one you should worry about.
I have never TPed someones house.... *sigh*

I think that is the motto of Dunder Mifflin
Author's Response: Thanks, EH. I am actually glad to have, uh, pinned down Todd Packer. It's always easy to do the likeable characters like Jim and Pam, but the ones I don't like are more of a challenge. I'm happy that you thought he was accurately done. I, too, have never TP'd a house, but I've heard of it, so I improvised. :)

Who has two thumbs and got a laugh out of this story? This guy. Great characterization here, though I sort of hope Packer's world isn't quite as bleak as you paint it....I mean wow. Ryan was spot on too.
Author's Response: Thanks, brokenloon. Interesting that you find Packer's world bleak. I was mainly exploring the question of why Packer is such a dickwad, and jealousy seemed to be a good answer. Things just seemed to spiral downward from there. Almost makes me feel sorry for the guy. But, you know, not.
