basically, i woke up this morning, went out to the car to start it and let it defrost and fell on my ass! My road is like 4mm thick with ICE! this is at like 6:30! so i slide back inside and give my mate a call, he lives closer to work so i know he can get in! I tell him the situation and he said theres no point risking it! it's stupid! I phone him first as i know i can get hold of him, and he can tell the managers when he gets to work as they rarely answer the phones before 8am! I waited half an hour to allow someone from management to open up the workshop and stuff before i give them a call to say i can't make it! so i rang up work saying the situation, and i got an earful saying how un acceptable it is! saying how im lazy, and i don't want to go in because it's chrstmas eve and all this bollocks! now i've been working there over a year now! and i've never been late without letting them know why! i've only been ill on ONE day, after throwing up at work! that wasn't even a full day off! so basically, they want me to risk my safety, my car which has just been resprayed by my own hands, and other peoples safety/property to go to work for HALF A DAY? WTF? then i get an earful about how there were 3 cars left unlocked last night! I checked the cars myself, in the freezing rain. all of them locked! so i dunno what going on there! i'm worried now! got a feeling i'll go back to work and get a notice handed to me! theyve been getting rid of staff left right and center these past few months! so annyed right now, i can't even relax infront of the TV watching custom my ride!
