Husband: So ask her to turn it down a little.
Me: Well, I'm not really her boss though. Bossman is, and I don't want to be a bitch.
Husband: Well you could go over there when she is gone and cut the cord. When she comes back say in a panic "Holy shit!! Fucking NINJAS attacked and tried to steal our formulas! Luckily I defended the lab, but in a last ditch effort they tried to destroy our equipment. I'm sorry, but I think they did some damage to your area. I've called in some of my friends from a rival clan to track them down, but sadly we suffered a great loss." Then just turn and walk away.
