I've never had the honor of receiving applause from Orson Welles before! (That's him, right? *would feel REALLY stupid if I made a mistake*) Thank you so much! And of course we can be friends! I'm sorry; I must have logged off before you sent me the request, or I would have accepted it sooner!
Toby is from Human Resources so that means he works for corporate.
Michael feels that he is also there to limit what they can do and essentially police the fun around The Office. Since he is from corporate he is also essentially not part of their "family" and shouldn't receive the same respect and friendliness that everyone else receives.
