According to Michael, Human Resources Manager Toby Flenderson is "everything that is wrong with the paper industry." (The Convention) Michael openly despises Toby because he is a corprate Human Recources and he is not part of what Michael calls the "family" and he is required to enforce the corporate rules that Michael so dearly loves to break. Michael is constantly and openly mean towards Toby, for example, he does not allow Toby to take one of the donuts that Michael brought in for his birthday (Michael's Birthday). Michael's long-standing goal is to get rid of Toby forever, and he is overjoyed when Toby leaves Dunder Mifflin to go to Costa Rica in Goodbye, Toby. Michael even throws a party to celebrate, but Toby eventually returns (Frame Toby).
