Budget Request Denied

Work Text:

Request #12798: Rejected
Reason for Rejection: This operation is now $30,000 over budget. All you are trying to do is kill a man. You could kill him with a pencil, and pencils cost 7 cents. Stop being so wasteful.
Authorization: Melinda May, Budget and Logistics Officer

 

Request #12805: Rejected
Reason for Rejection: Your exit strategy is idiotic. You're just going to get your whole team killed. And you think I'm going to pay for that? Please.
Authorization: Melinda May, Budget and Logistics Officer

 

Request #:12904 Rejected
Reason for Rejection: You do not need a $19,000 bow, Clint. Your aim is just fine as it is.
Authorization: Melinda May, Budget and Logistics Officer

 

Request #12947: Rejected
Reason for Rejection: Although the science division is typically given a fair amount of leeway for risky projects, this request is unsuitable for SHIELD. P.S. You shouldn't assume that all desk jockeys are scientifically illiterate: I know that "attempt to invert the expansive properties of a diverse set of matter particles" actually means that you want to turn on the alien technology to full blast and see if the universe implodes. Not happening.
Authorization: Melinda May, Budget and Logistics Officer

 

Request #:12993 Rejected
Reason for Rejection: Fury already told you that this project was denied. You probably thought that us idiots in accounting and budget wouldn't notice. I don't know if that makes you stupid or an asshole. Probably both.
Authorization: Melinda May, Budget and Logistics Officer

"I'm glad to see you back in the field, by the way," Phil said to Melinda after she had been on the team for a while, proud smile on his face.

"Yeah, not as glad as the people who sent me their paperwork," she said.

He pretended to have no idea what she was talking about.
