I guess i'll start from the beginning. On snapchat I saw a mutual friend post a picture of a sweet furry critter. To be more specific, a 3 month old baby Husky. On the picture it said "In need of a new home! My owner is moving away and needs a loving new family. Can discuss price if you are interested!". Who knows if I was feeling extra sensitive that day, or if my puppy urges were at an all time high - nonetheless I swiped up and asked "how much?". To give a brief description of where I was at in life, I was working a 9-5 full time job where pets were welcomed at all times. In my mind I thought well this would be amazing to have a best friend for life whom I can spend all day with and take to work. In my heart I felt ready to take on this big responsibility (or so I thought) and decided now was the right time to finally get a puppy. I was also living in an apartment with a roommate who gladly volunteered to pick the puppy up with me. My roomie was on board, I was finally getting a puppy, everything seemed right in the world! After getting supplies and preparing to welcome my new baby, the "owner" said okay how about $50 for the Husky and you pick him up tonight.
If you are Michael Scott during quarantine you are probably losing your mind. Being a social butterfly that loves interacting with your employees makes staying inside nearly unbearable. With that being said, you may give Stanley or Jim a few or 25 calls, emails, texts, etc. just to check in and see how they're doing. The Zoom meetings don't appeal to you since one of your qualities does NOT include being tech savvy. You may be caught sneaking out of quarantine disguised as someone other than yourself to stop by Dwight's farm or Pam's home. Although your employees find you quite annoying, to cheer you up they drive by your home while honking and showing appreciation.
When I think of the word Toxic the first thing that comes to mind is poison. Poison is a substance that causes sickness of a living organism when introduced or absorbed. With that being said, you may see the resemblance from that definition to a real person in your life - I know I can. Someone who literally sucks the life out of you and absorbs all your energy. It may seem harsh, but this is the reality.
