From the files of you can’t make this s**t up: Evil Sorta Indian Woman Boss gets note from client that key member of approval team has had major surgery and cannot approve documents until next week. She instructs one of her minions to write to the client and tell them we are sending their (unapproved, unreviewed) documents to production without the agreed-upon approvals. No “sorry you fell ill” (likely due to stress of this project). No “get well soon”.
Brilliant minion writes “Per Evil Woman, we will…” Kudos to her for having some sense about how to deal with the client who does not pay us and basically hates us.
I consider just being quiet but my sense of the absurd gets the better of me.
Email to utterly stupid, “shoot from the hip then clean up the bodies” boss: “I hate to get involved here. I mean, I really, really, really hate to get involved. But they haven’t posted those documents to our site. He emailed them to the woman who just had surgery. So when you send that really insulting email, could you ask for the documents? Otherwise, there’s nothing to send to production. Happy Friday!”
