Don't Paint Your Chickens (#7.15)
6 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm didn't have a job for a long time so Rebecca decides to do marketing for him and doesn't take "no" for an answer. He gets an assignment and Rebecca i so excited she wants to go and quit her current job. but Norm gets a call that the job was cancelled. He runs to warn Rebecca. But she does it anyways and gets promoted only unfortunately before it gets official the guy who promoted her gets taken by the FBI.

It is nice to see Rebecca and Norm work together. Even though her chameleon picture looked pretty bad she had a good idea .Also liked to see Rebecca so confident at the end, even though it didn't work out for her. But I would like to see her character like this more often
