Which Type Of TV Boss Do You Work For?

NBC's hit series, "The Office," aired its finale Thursday after nine hilarious seasons chronicling the awkward, mundane and plain silly aspects of the workplace. But the show will perhaps be most remembered for its unpredictable boss, Michael Scott.

Played by Steve Carrell who exited the series in 2011, Scott is the kind of boss who has no concept of humility; he drinks from a mug that reads, "World's Best Boss," but he's completely clueless. In a diversity training session, he wrote races on index cards, and then taped them to his workers' foreheads, urging them to describe the stereotypes associated with them as a way to help them understand prejudice.

Outlandish, sure, but Scott probably rings a bell for most workers. We've compiled a list of some the most memorable TV bosses. (One is from a movie.) Aside from the fact that they're all male, and white, they are wildly different. Let us know: Have you ever worked for one of these bosses? Which one do you wish you'd worked for?

My boss is,let's see how I can put this,I'd call him a prick except that's part of a man.He doesn't want any of us takling even on our breaks.He thinks we're plotting against him.How much do I hate him?I have a 2 liter bottle of urine frozen in my freezer.In my will it says the bottle is to be thawed and then poured on his grave or nobody gets anything and it all goes to charity.

Has anyone ever heard this rule of the English language?
"Don't end a sentence with a preposition."
So why do journalists that are supposed to be adept in the use of the language repeatedly do that very thing?
I understand grammar of the spoken word is often loosely applied with phrases like,
"Where's it at?", or "Where are you going to?", but when I hear, or read a supposed professional butchering the language, they diminish their credibility.
What brought all this on?
