He's got you on two counts:

1. Grammar (I hate it when somebody knows more about that than me. Or is
it more than I?)
2. Title. He's your boss. In this case he also gets to call on the dreaded
"because I said so" rule.

Out of curiosity, can you give an example? I'm a big proponent of
conversationally accurate writing when possible, and would like to see
what your complaint is.

For example, I think prepositions are GREAT things to end sentences with.
But that's just me.
