stupid work... stupid snow...
We had a pile of snow dropped on us over night. I start to drive to work this morning and I am sliding alllll over the place. I work about 20 km from where I live so it’s not like its short drive. I am only working part time (since Im back in school) and I really can't afford to get into an accident. I decide to turn back home and call work to tell them that the roads are bad and I don't feel comfortable driving in. Well my manager is from the same town as I am and tells me that if she can make it in so can I and that I should take the highway. About ten years ago I was in a bad 5 car accident during a snow storm and since then I am a very nervous driver in the winter and cannot travel on the highway without panicking. I tried to explain that to the manager but I was told “to take my time and get here when I can…” The only alternative option to get to work would be to take the train ($6.10 each way) plus a taxi to get from the train station to work ($13.50 each way), which would mean I would only make $40.00 today. I know I sound like a whiner but I’m just a little frustrated with work and don’t know what I should do.
