Just wanted to thank the BBC for producing this Mockumentary Series.... although clearly in the guise of "The Office" (An American Workplace - not the subprime British version), some of the actors should be commended for their characters.
For example - the actor playing Nev clearly appreciates that the spiv could never manage his way out of an open and transparent paper bag, let alone manage a Barrow, or even a £Multi Million Call Centre

All real people
This is what others said when it was shown on BBC3

Yes, but acknowledging that would mean passing up a chance to insult someone who's achieved a measure of success without getting the finest education.

What a programme. I am strangely fascinated by it. Withoug wishing to offend and acknowleding that I don't know much about the yoof of today, and I am not a snob, I find these people very loud, gross, stupid, rude.....cold calls annoy the hell out of me as it is but now I have seen what some of the callers are like, I am even more outraged by these pesky calls!
The ladies toilet bin event, the amount of smoking, the lacksadaisical attitude to work, the clothes,, the way they conduct themselves and speak...and I'm all for a relaxed workplace but it seems as if most of them just go for a laugh.
