*** There was a lot of backlash too about Brice's final storyline, in which he tried to make amends to Marla, only for her to act really petty about it. Again, the comments about her becoming jaded popped up, with one commenter flat out say this was something ''Stuart'' would do, not Marla. Current and former retail workers, though, can't blame her, saying she didn't even have to help Brice [[spoiler:get the New Hampshire store]] after how he treated her, and given how often he got AesopAmnesia, they're cynical it'll stick, especially since [[spoiler:now he's in charge]].

That she only helped Brice out to get back at Mina doesn't help matters.

* JerkassWoobie: Marla's third assistant, Brice Tanner, tends to micromanage everyone and be a thorn on their sides, but he is portrayed more sympathetically than Josh ever was, especially when he is on the receiving end of Stuart's idiotic policy.

Having the wool pulled from his eyes about how paranoid and ruthless corporate can get, and finding out how much ''worse'' his job could be under Mina, certainly helped.

** In August 2016, there was a storyline where Marla missed a company meeting because her car broke down. Stuart believe she was lying, while Brice gave her the benefit of the doubt. Turns out [[spoiler: that Stuart was right, and Marla did skip the meeting because she's become that jaded about her professional life. Many readers were upset because it was so uncharacteristic of Marla, and that Stuart's jerkass attitude was actually justified for a change.]]

** Readers were also opposed to the storyline where Scott is intending to propose to Marla because Val blamed Cooper for the rest of the Grumbel's staff finding out before Marla did, and for Marla assuming that the real rumour was that Stuart was quitting and she was going to get his job. ''This was entirely Val's fault''. Cooper told her about the engagement, and she was the one who told everyone else. She was also the one who made up the lie about Stuart, despite knowing that Marla has wanted the manager's position for ''years''.

When everything comes out into the open, Val blames Cooper told her for ''everything'' when his only crime was telling Val when he found out about the engagement, and she proposal from Scott.
