be fussy about
My boss is fussy about our work.
A: Are you alright? You don't seem to be as cheerful as you normally are.
B: To be honest, I've just had a really bad day.
A: What happened?
B: First, I slept through my alarm and ended up two hours late for work.
A: What did your boss say?
B: He told me that if I showed up late one more time, he'd fire me. He's so mean.
A: That's horrible. Was that the first time you'd shown up late to work?
B: That was my second time. The first time, I was in a car accident.
A: Is your boss Chinese?
B: No, he's from Australia. Before I met him, I thought Australians were supposed to be relaxed and easy-going. I had no idea he'd be so fussy about things.
A: What are you going to do?
B: I think I'm going to look for another job. I need to find a boss that is a bit more sensitive and optimistic than my current boss.
A: That sounds like a sensible plan. Do you want me to help you with your job search?
B: That's very kind of you. Thanks for the offer.
A: Don't mention it. That's what friends are for.
