NBC's 'Superstore' makes us wish we worked at Cloud 9

Office games, ladies' lunches, corporate gossip — the Cloud 9 employees have it good.

"Superstore" stars America Ferrera and Ben Feldman — who give off serious Jim and Pam from "The Office" vibes — are at the center of the NBC show’s hilarious drama, which takes them away from nearly all of the typical woes that come with working in retail.

Office puppies boost morale. They decrease stress. They're just downright adorable. Bring in this list when trying to convince your boss to allow Fido to sleep under your desk during your 9 to 5.

The only time a Cloud 9 employee works late is when one of their co-workers is in need. Enter Glenn, with a monkey sock puppet to turn that frown upside down.
