Surely writers for The Office could not have known just how true their script could be for the 2007 episode in which Michael (Steve Carell)--despite the "This is the lake! This is the lake!" screams of Dwight (Rainn Wilson)--obediently follows the orders of his GPS and drives his rental car into water. Preposterous. Outrageous. Could only happen on a sitcom.
Except yesterday it happened here, in Dwight's old stomping grounds no less. Police say a car with three young women ended up taking a GPS-ordered turn and wound up submerged in a Bellevue slough. It was a high-tech splashdown almost identical to Michael's - in a rental car to boot.
