TV classic The Office is gearing up for a season finale where the Dunder Mifflen gang meets prospective boss candidates. Star-studded possibilities include Ray Romano, Jim Carrey and even Ricky Gervais.  Only on TV is a kooky, crazy, annoying boss cause for laughter.

Are you starring in your own personal dramedy with your boss? We've posted here and here about dealing with bad bosses. But what of the merely annoying boss? The boss whose antics don't add up to HR complaints but get on your nerves nonetheless?

Bosses are people first and whenever two personalities need to interact day-in and day-out, there's bound to be the occasional friction. And if you and your boss have dissimilar temperaments, work styles, or even different senses of humor, tensions can be exacerbated.

We also like the advice in  7 Ways to Deal with Annoying People and Still Get Things Done.
