    Question 'You are not the boss of me'

    Hello,

    sometimes I have heard people say - 'you are not the boss of me' in movies/TV serials. Is this a colloquial way of saying - 'you are not my boss'? It sounds a bit strange to me. And that brings me to the next question - Is there such a thing as right or wrong in colloquialism?

    Thank you
