    Tell company two that you have another offer on the table but that you’d really prefer them. But you’d need an offer by x date. If they don’t get you an offer on time then go with company one. And don’t look back.

    Didn’t you JUST start a new job? And couldn’t even show up on time? 

    Job 1 doesn’t sound that great, so I second pps advice to reach out to #2.

    Reach out to the other job. My SIL did this and the job she really wanted offered her the job on the spot because they really wanted her and didn’t want to lose her to the other company.

     You aren’t cut out for long hours. Pass on Company 1.

    jellybellynelly :  You always come through with the receipts!

    Given what I’ve inferred about your work history, pass on job 1 and go for job 2. Best of luck to you.
