    NOT A TEACHER

    If you mean that he has been talking about his boss, I believe that

    many people use on. I think that it often suggests negative remarks:

    He is so boring. He has been going on and on about Mr. Smith for

    the past hour. It seems that Mr. Smith will not give him a raise in

    salary.
