Look I can’t change how I see people. I have values and standards. I do respect him (he manages his company well, treats us workers very well, he’s the best boss I’ve ever had tbh) BUT he’s got some ego issues obviouslyI wanted to grab your attention wtih a "what if", but I did not expect you to ignore everything else.
Here's my point: it sounds like you feel disdain for your boss - you look down on him. That attitude is something he can feel, even if you say nothing. Do you agree with that?
The result could be your boss saying he doesn't like your attitude, and then deciding your job performance based on how he feels. And then you literally pay for it - your pay is lower.
