It's exhausting trying to keep track of all the awful things Michael Scott did on The Office. And even though fans think he's the best character on the long-running NBC sitcom, Michael Scott is the worst boss ever (even though his mug says differently). He has loveable moments and shows true compassion for his co-workers, but, ultimately, he's nosy, selfish, and inconsiderate.
For every nice thing he does for Ryan or Pam, there are 50 times Michael Scott on The Office is mean to Phyllis, Toby, or Dwight. Some Office fan theories think Michael just plays the fool for his own amusement, but that's highly unlikely.
His branch is one of the most successful in all of Dunder Mifflin, but that often has little to do with his leadership. The sales and administration team often has to clean up the messes he leaves behind, yet Michael is always more than happy to take the credit. And while fans can point to a handful occasions where the "World's Best Boss" lived up to his billing, there are plenty of truly horrible reasons why Michael Scott is actually the worst.
