I wish I could discover who has been marketing the idea that CONFRONTATION is necessary or useful, and confront them ! That's a combative stance, and meek silence isn't the only alternative. Its the difference between being assertive ( good ) and aggressive ( bad).
Don't be scared of disappointing your boss, especially as he seems to believe in paying you with empty compliments rather than actual cash. Business life can be disappointing, and he's a big boy now. Look for and find a better job, then discuss this calmly and confidently.
If you feel scared to talk to him, he's ptobably not a really good boss anyway
