This time of year is normally very busy for Scottish sports broadcaster Andrew Cotter. If not for the COVID-19 pandemic, he'd be preparing for the Masters, Wimbledon and the Olympics. Instead, Cotter is commentating on the happenings inside his home, covering two clueless stars who -- unlike the talent he's used to being around -- are food-motivated and rather lazy.
On Monday, Cotter attempted to hold a Zoom meeting with his colleagues (and the aforementioned talent), labrador retrievers Mabel and Olive. Both dogs had to "BOOP" the camera in order to activate it, but Cotter had to tell them that they didn't "have to be so close" to it (such a rookie conference call move).
Fortunately no one was getting furloughed at the company, but Cotter did have to address Mabel's lack of focus (it sounded like there was an "inappropriate" issue with Kevin the Doberman from accounts). Olive, on the other hand, will receive a small bonus for "slightly better behavior." Management sent a note, which Cotter read aloud in a deadpan tone: "You're a good dog, yes you are. Who's a good dog? You're a good dog."
After Olive got off the call, Cotter had to have a one-on-one with Mabel. It was a bit embarrassing to witness, but fortunately Mabel hung up before things got too awkward. A bit bold on her part, if you ask me, seeing as she's on thin ice.
In addition to Mabel being a Human Resources nightmare, there's more from Cotter's at-home commentary on his ill-behaved coworkers.
