This is a time when many people with established jobs are trying to renegotiate relationships with an established physical office, the time they have to show up at a specific location each week. In many cases, the answer has been, “For God’s sake, no.” For the past two years, many Americans have loved avoiding time-consuming commutes, the workplace drama, and interpersonal conflict that result from dealing every day with a fixed group of people are forcibly handcuffed to a desk, and there is great reluctance to rejoin this system.

In this week, Saturday night live responded to this trend by taking the premise of a nightmare office to its ultimate extension. Ego Nwodim, Chloe Fineman and Melissa Villaseñor are company employees who gossip in the toilet about a nightmarish colleague: Janet. The worst thing about her? she is so quiet During the carpool, she disappears and then reappears in the back seat like Chucky, the murderous doll from the horror series child’s play.

Guess who’s in the cabin behind them? An eavesdropping Chucky (Sarah Sherman), who also happens to be one of her co-workers, resents being equated with the office outcast. He terrorizes and threatens to kill the women right there, but their ultimate fate is worse: they all have to attend a meeting of the company’s human resources department to air his grievance.

Colleague Chucky is a solid premise in itself, but this sketch takes things to the next level: Sherman is an exceptional Chucky, Fineman’s character credits Chucky with eavesdropping on the company’s unsafe gender-neutral bathroom policy and Jake Gyllenhaal (especially good as the company’s HR fugitive) tells Chucky that the women were wrong to equate him with the shitty Janet and that he belongs with the company because “each of us has a different story,” even though the doll repeatedly insults him leg stabs. Meanwhile, Janet is in the corner taking notes (and eating overly fragrant food).

real life cOrporate nightmares are not too far apart. Who among us hasn’t felt like we’ve repeatedly been bumped on a leg (or prayed for strength, if…) at a meeting Handling with the fragrant Cubemate food selection)?
