Doesn’t matter whether it’s a boss/employee, parent/child, or friend/friend relationship, this story is pretty messed up. So, our OP doesn’t have a car (not sure how she was planning to get home from work originally, but that’s beside the point). Her and the boss are the only ones working at her job on this particular day. Once they got word that a pretty big snowstorm was coming, her boss said he’d close up work early and drive her home. He had an hour-long break midday, but when he got back, he promised he’d close up. As you guys already know, this wasn’t the case.
HOURS go by, and the storm starts getting really bad. Our OP tries calling her boss multiple times, and it ends up going to voicemail every time. What is she supposed to do? She has no way home, no taxis/cabs are taking rides atm, and everyone who she’s tried to call for a ride says it’s too far or too bad out to drive. To make matters worse, it’s getting dark out and she’s afraid the old building might lose power. So, she’s stuck.
Now at this point of the story, I was a little concerned about her boss’s safety. Why wasn’t he answering? Was he okay? Did he get in a bad accident on the way? But then, the OP shared that one of her coworkers called her boss, and he picked up right away. He even had the audacity to say that he closed the shop up early because of the storm, but FAILED to mention that there was still an employee there. Yikes. Keep reading to see what our OP did next.
