Was your boss Buck Strickland?
OMG!! I have never watched King Of The Hill, so this is all new to me. That is too funny!! You wanna hear something even funnier? My boss (NOT Buck Strickland) was the boss at a compressed gas distributor!!! No kidding! And I hesitate to reveal this, but my real first name is Hank. I swear on all that is good and holy that this is true!
I worked there in the mid 1990's, so before King Of the Hill.
