The Stress Test is the seventeenth episode of Miss Management.


Ashley detailed her bad date with a lawyer to Pearl and she even mentioned a Pakistani guy who keeps hitting on her and followed her for a block. The said guy she is referring to turned out to be Mahavir, who returned for work. Denise mentioned that Winston is absent from work for refusing to work under Duncan.

Mahavir continued to flirt with Ashley, which disgusted her even more. Then Duncan walked in and told everyone that the productivity has been down lately and encouraged them to buck up. Pearl told Denise that the team cannot deal with Duncan much longer, and told her to keep the team from stressing out due to the upcoming work.

After the work is done, Duncan wants to celebrate with the team at a skateboard park, but everyone declined. Duncan is confused why everyone did not like him, but Denise assured that the team would rather go hang out with other friends after work. Denise reluctantly confessed to Duncan that he was not a good leader.
