Boss, Why Did You Give Me Such A Peculiar Stare..?

I wonder if my Boss has been browsing the blogs lately..and have stumbled across my blog..mmm. This question keeps on lingering in my mind as the whole half-day at my workplace my Boss was staring at me - as if there were something wrong that I've done...Hopefully it was a heterogeneous stare (not homogeneous...he...he..)
My Boss is an every obidient subordinate could imagine as someone who is strictly following the rules of the "book" - "...I can be soft if you all want me to be; and I can be like hell as well if you all play hard with me.." The first "warning versus " he spoke for the first time he appeared in our "comfort zone" / organization sometime last year.
There are only few satirical posts that I've posted onto my blog concerning the leadership issues - and most of the instances I've drawn were from my own internal experience - and honestly the essence and criticism were not intended upon him (sometimes..he..he..).
I don't have much headache with my boss's style of management though- maybe he has been brought up in such a way where discipline is the utmost priority in his daily routine /regime - and mistakes should not be tolerated...Everything is about result if the performance appraisal were to be given a favourable mark / grade.
The positive impact of his disposition and his way of leading us is that of the decorum he has inculcated in most of us - though "hard and rigorous" in many ways - I could feel and observe the changes that are still going on and taking place- punctuality is improving, meeting the dateline of given tasks has improved tremendously, and no more the culture of "suka-suka keluar masa karja mo pigi minum kupi di kadai..abis di kantin pait kunun.." and no more "lepaking" at the canteen - even the Uncle Guard has already been brainwashed / indoctrinated with the military style of securing the gate - and constantly frowning seriously from the main entrance gate...to any suspected "mutineers" (Guantanamo Camp...)
Okay..lah this is quite a lengthy piece. Need to attend my domestic ducks, chickens and puppies as I can hear them shouting at me from the backyard asking to be fed - if not, I'm worried they might be emigrated next door....discipline is discipline dia bilang boss...he..he..
