To adulate is to praise someone excessively or servilely. You might want to try this before asking your boss for a raise.

If I were your boss that wouldn’t work because I have very low self-esteem. I’d know with absolute certainty that you were lying and merely trying to butter me up undeservedly, even if you weren’t.

That having been said, if you want to adulate me in the comments here, feel free. I like to hear flattery, even when I know it is a lie. It takes me about one quarter of one second for me to realize that the flattery is false. But I manage to feel good for that fleeting moment before returning to my normal morose self.
