Sounds Like Somebody’s Got a Case of the Mondays

Office Space is all about the exciting world of a white-collar office workers. I’ve never held a position in an office cubicle, but I’m sure it’s pretty accurate. Peter and his friend’s Samir and Michael Bolton (no relation) are all fed up with their jobs. A common theme in movies released in 1999. So Peter comes up with a plan to take money from their company Initech. Which includes wrecking the copy machine. But not before living life to the fullest with his new girlfriend. It took me awhile to watch Office Space. Despite it being directed by Mike Judge, creator of Beavis and Butt-Head & King of the Hill. I suppose I was just too young to get it. Not that I wasn’t at least familiar with all the memes and memorable scenes. Like VP Bill Lumbergh, with an annoying habit for saying uh, yeah, and okay. Very meme-worthy. However, the real star of the movie is Milton. The timid mumbling worker who gets treated like crap by the company. All he wants is to keep his stapler, is that too much to ask? Interestingly enough, Milton was the star of a couple of animated shorts that the movie is based on. Office Space shows that even white-collar slobs can live the thug life if pushed too far.

“Uh, yeah…”
