14 Lines from Sitcom Bosses That Make Us Want to Quiet Quit


We’ve all had that classic fantasy job-quit, and maybe one day we’ll actually develop a spine, hold our heads high, and snag one last bag of Cheez-Its on our Irish-Goodbye outta this dump! One day… One day. Like our bosses, the completely batshit bonkers lines that spewed from these sitcom bosses continuously brought their staff to the brink. Did they quit? No, they endured. Since they had to smile and nod along to their boss’ insanity for our viewing pleasure, today we salute the many workplace sitcom characters who showed us how good we had it on our couches.

Don’t get us wrong, these are some of the best TV bosses in the game.

Start filling up that bank box. Here are 14 lines from sitcom bosses that make us want to quiet quit.
