First time? Start here. Read "The Primer" and follow the link at the end. Chronological order makes more sense for the stories.

If I haven't mentioned before, Female Boss gets the crazy in-mails. The stupid joke ones, the pass around ones, the spam ones, the "if you send this to 10 people in 10 minutes after reading this you will become as rich as an astronaut and if you don't your appendix will explode while you're in the shower" type in-mails.  By the way, I hate you fuckin people that keep sending these around the globe month after month and year after year.  You truly are a virus.  I will find a way to exterminate the lot of you.

This particular in-mail happens to have a streaming video attachment. Its a commercial for some tool company.

It goes something like this:  A guy is using a power drill to drill thru a wall at a construction site. You see another guy in the back room that he is drilling into walk by. All of a sudden the drill goes through the wall and impales the other worker. The driller doesn't realize this and hits the trigger on the drill a few more times resulting in the guy spinning around. Showing the sheer "power" that this new power drill possesses by being able to spin an entire human being with no problem.  Har har har. Right? No.

Female boss let's out a shriek, "Oh my God! That's gross!!"

At this point I haven't seen the video so I chuckle and say lemme see it. I get to see it. Female Boss is aghast. Male Boss comes in and wants to see it. Female Boss is practically pale, no joke.  She has her hand over her mouth and I can see it shaking.

After watching it THREE fucking times she still doesn't understand its a commercial using special effects, she thinks its real.. what can be done to save someone like this?
