    Grammar help.

    I should be so blessed to have an employer such as he. (or is it him?)

    This sentence seems so wrong to me. What can I do to improve?

    Thanks.

    "I should be so blessed to have an employer like him" is how I would express this.

    IMHO:

    I would be blessed to have an employer such as him.

    "I should be so blessed" does not sound, to my ear, like a natural English phrase.

    I don't want to start another objective/subjective pronoun free-for-all here, but him sounds good to me.
