HELP! My boss won't give me money!!! what to do???

HI guys, hope that you can help me. i am doing an intern in research at a new financial services company like Citigroup. it is a lot better than my last job in financial services which really suck. anyways, my company asked me to do some research on telco. i use google, but finded very little free informations, but i finded lots of reports that are exactly what my boss wants to see. the reports are very expensive but i know that the Citi can get the reports for free. so anyway, i bought the report, like 4 or 5 of them, and altogther it costed me about $8000, which is the limit to my credit card...

when i ask my boss how to get reimbursed for the money, he said that if i want to use research report, i need to use the citis online system for access. he said theres no way to file the money request. so i ask him to give me the money since he has a lot more money than me and i have none, but he said no. anyway, what can i do to get back the money????? please help me, i really need the money because right now i have none!!! i tried to tell me credit card company to give back the money, but it is citi card so they wont help me... i maybe will sue the citi, will this work???? how can i sue them but not lose my job??? please help, thanks!!!!

Why is everyone busting a nut over this? I think its retarded. The one about timing his arrival at work so he could drive his dads car past her while she was leaving was faaaaar better.

"i am doing an intern in research"

First thing that poped into my mind, "who the fuck wants to fuck a banker chick?"

Sorry to say but it is your fault that Citi won't pay for your research. Before spending anything, you should have talked to your boss about the dilemma that you're having with your research. And, if you're suing just make sure that you are ready to lose your job.
