There are many characters to love and remember from Seinfeld. While seeing your friends can be great fun, you’ll more than likely see your co-workers and boss more often. There is no such thing as normal in this show and these bosses on the job certainly make a case for that. Let’s see which five Seinfeld bosses make the list.
Seinfeld Bosses #5 – Mr. Kruger
How can anyone be more incompetent that George? Well, there is Mr. Kruger, whose business is in the red or black, or whichever is bad. When he hires George, all sorts of strange things happen. He meets Dr. Van Nostrand, he learns of The Human Fund, and even has the “R” fall off the building which now says K-Uger! He even has a chance to celebrate Festivus with the Costanza’s but surely Mr. Kruger is one boss who really doesn’t care about anything. He’s like George but at least he had something going for himself!
Seinfeld Bosses #4 – Mr. Lippman
Elaine’s boss at Pendant Publishing for nearly half of the show, Mr. Lippman and Elaine didn’t often agree on their work. Whether it was a book with too few exclamation points, buying a cigar store indian or helping to create Kramer’s coffee table book, Mr. Lippman always got Elaine involved with something. He even tried to hook-up with Elaine after the company went under but not before finding out that George had sex with the cleaning woman on his desk. He was so nice to even give George back the sweater with that red dot on it!
#3 – Justin Pitt
A strange and eccentric man who hires Elaine to be his personal assistant but in reality, has her doing odd tasks. Finding the right socks, removing the salt off his pretzels and even winning him a ticket so he can stand under the Woody Woodpecker Balloon are just some examples of what Elaine does when she works with this guy. Perhaps, he’s the reason why I’ll eat a snickers bar with a knife and fork instead of with my hands!
#2 – J. Peterman
The man’s whose catalog speaks for itself but is one of the strangest characters in the show. J. Peterman has been all over the world and experienced a many adventures and uses his stories to advertise his catalog. His stories may fascinate others, but Elaine can’t stand them after a while. His interactions with Kramer and George make for some hilarious moments and even the biography of Peterman is a fabrication of Kramer’s life stories. In speaking of the weirdest boss to have, Peterman takes the crown!
#1 – George Steinbrenner
How could George land a job with the Yankees? Well, by being the complete opposite. His boss Steinbrenner is actually voiced by series co-creator Larry David, and the way he talks is hilarious to say the least. A boss who fancies calzones, believes George is a communist and takes a radical idea and runs with it. He may scalp tickets at the front gate, threaten to move the team to New Jersey just to upset people and even pay a visit to George’s parents when it’s believed he’s dead, Steinbrenner is the boss that you’ll never forget and end up talking about with your friends and family.
