Jeff is very annoying but I don't hate him. I should but I don't because there's something about him that tells me he isn't really mean deep down inside. He's fraught with obsessions and walks a fine line with sanity/normalcy but I don't see a mean person.
He has this "little dictator" mentality where he's the big fish in the little pond and enjoys this position enourmously. As to the people who work for him, I can't feel sorry for them. If they don't like it, they can always get another job. Obviously, it doesn't bother them that much. There is no way I would tolerate a boss making me wear a plastic coverall when I've "misbehaved" or any other parental punishment he deems ok for his bad little employees.
Still, I see him as a insecure little boy who's very, very good at what he does. He's a genius at his work and his standards of excellent customer service/respect. He just assumes everyone else can meet those same standards and few people are as much the perfectionist that he is.
Do you think those puffy lips of his are natural? I can't tell.
