If you've ever watched "The Office," you are well-aware of what it means to have a Michael Scott boss.

Any boss who is known for deep cringe antics, casual racism laced with a deep need to be loved, festive office games that make no sense, PSAs that go off the rails, a creepy yet unthreatening regard for female employees, and a complete lack of competence qualifies as a Michael Scott boss.

There are added points for accuracy if your boss regularly uses puns, pulls pranks on employees, dresses up in costumes, and generally tries to meddle in the personal lives of employees. While Michael Scott's antics are equal parts hilarious and uncomfortable to watch on-screen, actually working for someone of that caliber is an even stranger experience.

In a popular Reddit thread, people who work for Michael Scott bosses shared their stories, and it's truly incredible there are so many real-life sitcom characters walking among us.

1. From LemonsofLifee:

He wanted a pomegranate for lunch and they were out of season, but that didn’t stop him from sending me on a quest to every grocery store in town in search of a pomegranate. Multiple produce guys laughed at me, but that was the easiest $13/hr I’ve ever made.
