Storyline

After a month of long-distance-relationship with Victoria, she's already sent Ted three care packages full of stuff he likes, but he hasn't sent her any. Marshall works in Barney's office and doesn't like it all or the people he works with, but Barney talks him once again into keeping the job. Marshall decides that it must be easier to work in the office if he adapts to the people he is working with and gets some "get psyched" training from Barney. Written by Sab
