These Horrible Bosses From ‘Friends’ Will Make You Appreciate Your Boss

In case you missed it: Oct. 16 was National Boss’s Day, which is apparently different than every other day for workers all over the country, because usually you just have to brown nose with your actions and on Oct. 16, you get to do it with gifts and stuff!

In all seriousness, it’s a day that you — if you’re lucky enough to have a supportive manager — you get to honor the person who you work with every day and helps nurture your career. And if you aren’t one of those people who are fortunate to have a supervisor who you respect and admire enough to celebrate on Oct. 16 (or the closest work day should the 16th fall on a weekend!), then you know there’s nothing that makes you appreciate a good boss more than a terrible boss!

While the gang isn’t known for being particularly great bosses —Rachel hired a guy she had a crush on instead of a more qualified assistant, Monica was a pretend bad boss to Joey, and Chandler was known to talk smack about his poor assistant — it may not be their fault, considering our favorite characters from Friends have seen some of the most horrible bosses ever! From Chandler’s boss who got way too touchy, to Ross’ boss eating HIS SANDWICH (complete with a moist maker!), we have a feeling these fictional bosses will make you appreciate your own boss just a little bit more — and remember, it’s probably not too late to send your boss flowers (or a barbershop quartet if you’re feeling especially needy)!
