It’s martini time! But not for Jenni and Andrew. With her human resources hat on, Jenni talks to Andrew about his comments with Frank. Of concern is his comment that stuff just comes out of his mouth. Like projectile vomit or crude sexual remarks?
The towel is suing for being folded inappropriately.
Speaking of inappropriate, Jeff is looking at Jenni and asking her what she wears underneath her jumpsuit. Yikes! He thinks it hides her beer belly, so at least he compliments her. Jeff seems unusually interested in women gaining weight in their breasts. When she asks him where he gains weight first, he says his testicles. Thank goodness for human resources.
LISA G’S OFFICE
Lisa is the HBIC at Extra. Jeff, Jenni, and Vanina meet with Lisa at her office to go over the budget for furniture and construction. The bids are coming in at $280K, but Lisa is staying firm that it must not go over $250K.
Jeff goofs off and drops something into Andrew’s drink. Andrew loudly calls him a “f***ing asshole” in the restaurant. It’s this sort of line that Andrew doesn’t seem to naturally know to not cross. Jeff asks Andrew about his work experience, which has been a few months here and there. Gage seems more concerned than Jeff. There’s more talk about Andrew being a “trust fund” kid that has never had to have a career, even though he’s 37-years-old.
Did someone drop a lawsuit in my tea?
Jeff asks Vanina about an email she received and the urine residual that she’s leaving when she uses the restroom. There’s uncomfortable questions about how she’s sitting to be leaving so much residual, and Jeff’s fed up with having to wipe up after her.
Vanina proceeds to make a complaint to human resources, and a file is opened for Jeff Lewis. Jeff lets Vanina know he’s found out about her reporting him and asks her to look up all the synonyms for “narc”.
LISA G’S OFFICE
Jeff is going to have to go to Gil, the contractor, to see if he can cut $30K from the bid. Otherwise, Jeff is going to have to get bids and bring other people in to try to stick to the budget.
Jeff learns what “No” looks like.
Jenni is meeting with Gil to let him know that the price is too high. Gil has thrown in some things for free already, but even though he thinks the bid is fair, he’ll at least go back to his office to see if he can come down. Jenni offers to rap at his daughters’ birthday parties as an incentive.
Everyone is finishing up for the day and going over final details. Andrew jokes about liking to work with Jeff, but “at other times, he’d rather slurp rancid tuna salad out of Nancy’s ass.” Nancy is the middle-aged house assistant that happens to have been a law officer. Andrew is so lucky Nancy didn’t grab his ass and throw him down the stairs.
The cat on the kitchen counter has the best job at Jeff Lewis Designs.
