My placement building (im a student at this place, dont work there) was evacuated monday morning(for a pipe burst) and I was the only one in the building from our company..
I emailed my boss letting her know I was there and I was wondering if the building would be closed for tuesday (today)
this was her response:
sorry for not calling you today. The problem stared last Friday and we thought that it would be dealt with by today.It apperas for now that the buiilding will be closed tomorrow as well.
Do not worry about tomorrow. Take another day off and I’ll let you know when we’ll be back to normal.
Take care and we’ll keep in touch.
So i never heard back from her today, and I have no idea if the building has been fixed…she never responded to my email i sent today..
she did email me that she would let me know when everything is back to normal..is it safe to assume its still closed? Her automated message right now said she will be back when the building gets fixed (no specific day) so I am assuming she doesnt know when it will be ready?
I cant even call because no one is in the building…ugh

@SaugaBride: She said she would call when the building will be back to normal. I would stay home tomorrow, but I would also call or email her again first thing tomorrow in case she fogets you again.

@babeba: yea i emailed her asking how the building was for tomorrow, still no response and its been quite a few hours now
it just sucks because I cant really wait till the morning..i get a ride 2 hours before our office even opens and if i wait until people get there, ill have no way of getting there..except cabbing..i really dont have the money to be doing that and if my ride drops me off and the building is closed il be stuck there…
i think im just not going to go..ughh why cant people just update the staff …

@SaugaBride: Stop guilting yourself out about something over which you have no control. She said she would call. It’s not reasonable, given your transportation situation, to expect you to come in at short notice.
You are a student. Even if they are open, they will manage without you.
