Boss: "it's not the same font"
Me: "yes, it is"
Boss: "don't argue with me. It's a different font"
Me: "ok it's a different font" (it's not)
Boss: "change it please"

15 minutes later and I've done nothing at all to it. Boss comes back.

Boss: "see? I knew it was a different font. This looks perfect now. Why were you lying to me before? I don't like you arguing with me"

    And you didn't have the balls to then say it is still the same font? Or just show him the font setting that proves which font is set...

    Had a boss come back to me, happy about the micro changes I did to the layout. For a second I was confused and then I agreed to their wisdom.

    Learned the hard way that you have to show your boss from day 1 that he can't push you around. Too late for you now. Find a new job :D :D :D
