So the other day I emailed my new boss:
Thank you for the request, and I want to assure you that it will be considered
very seriously once the psychological profile is complete.

I just got ANOTHER email from her stating that she's going to be out of town and we have any issues we'll be reporting directly to the president of the company until she gets back. Her email included a PS that said "This may be a good time to escalate that request for machetes."
How cool is that?
