The phrase that people say to their boss
when they know that they have fucked up and their boss has yelled at them at them. This is the acceptable response apart from "sorry" that should be used when apologising to a boss. The harshness of the reason can vary from being late to shredding a court case report. The result is always the same, the accused, embarrassed and flustered, the boss, pissed off, saying "it better not" and the rest of the workers staring at the accused.
Boss: Hey Gary, have you seen the Johnson Parking ticket case? It was on my desk.
Gary: Was it on the same corner that is the shred pile?
Boss: Yes, have you seen it?
Gary: I kind of shredded it...
Boss: YOU DID WHAT???
Gary: But it was on the shred pile
Boss: ALWAYS ASK ME WHEN YOU'RE GOING TO SHRED SOMETHING. NOW GO INTO THE SHREDDER AND PICK OUT ALL THE PAPER FROM THE FILE AND STICK IT BACK TOGETHER!!!
Gary: Sorry Mr Stevens. It won't happen again.
Boss: It better not.
