In the head office of a toy company, the staff are more childish than the target market many of them don't understand. Jo is a hard-working PA to the largely incompetent, stressed Rod, and Simon is the somewhat lazy PA to Maxine. Then there's Cheryl, another receptionist/PA: nice enough, but really rather dim.

Whilst Jo is busy trying to keep Rod out of trouble - and as a single mother, care for Sam, her young daughter - Simon is more often than not desperately trying to hide his affair with boss Maxine from everyone. But the only person who doesn't know is the gossip-loving Cheryl!
