I mean, I just want to make the conversation more friendly, so sometimes I greet my boss with "Hey boss" or "thanks, boss".

Is it ok?

I think that depends. If your workplace is pretty casual and your boss doesn't mind, then sure. I greet my boss the same way, but that's part of the organizational culture here.

  • That's what I thought, too. My boss is relaxed, easy-going, I'd say, but if he does mind, he doesn't show it ;)

  • Then you should be good to go :) I'm fairly certain that if he DID mind, you'd already know
