Daughter dating deadbeat giving up on dating

As a consequence of their reunion, Michael hires his nephew Luke as an intern for the office, but eventually confronts the incompetent and rude Luke and ends up spanking him in front of the office, leading Luke to burst into tears and quit.In the episode "Take Your Daughter to Work Day", Michael makes the claim that he was a child star on a kids' show called Fundle Bundle; however, it becomes clear that he simply appeared on the show as one of many guest children who usually watched from home.In "Two Weeks", he claims to have acquired half of the Scranton branch client base.In "The Client", he impresses his then-manager, Jan Levinson-Gould, by singlehandedly acquiring an important client through somewhat unorthodox methods.

He also claims to be two-fifteenths Native American.Both Pam Halpert and Ryan Howard are impressed watching him make sales and negotiate their contracts when working in The Michael Scott Paper Company.Even Jim Halpert concedes that he might never become as good a salesman as Michael in "Koi Pond".The skills that made him successful as a salesman, however, are not effective when applied to managerial duties and Michael is shown to be ill-suited to that position, injecting a lot of his personal feelings into the work environment.During a candid conversation in "The Fire", Michael tells Ryan that he became a salesman because he loved to make friends and, after being promoted to regional manager at a young age, continued to treat work-related relationships as personal friendships which he acknowledges is more difficult because his colleagues are all lower than him in the workplace's hierarchy.
