Someone's Seen Top Gun One Too Many Times.

Employee: So did you guys have a good time yesterday?
Visiting employee: Yes, it was great. But at the end your boss tried to kill me, she took me to this insanely dangerous place with all these signs saying, “falling will result in injury or drowning”. Not 'may' result in injury or drowning, 'will' result in injury or drowning! I've never seen a warning sign like that before!
Employee: Of course she did.
Boss: But you have to admit it is an incredibly interesting and beautiful place.
Employee: I suppose she told you that it really wasn't that dangerous.
Boss, indignantly: No, I didn't! I told him *exactly* how dangerous it is! It's just that I don't care.
