Wow that’s so strange.  If the classes are cancelled, I don’t even know why he is at work!  Don’t risk you life just for a job!

Thats really weird!!  What is the policy there for when classes are canceled.  Does that mean people are supposed to report to work or not?  Everywhere I’ve worked has a clear cut policy regarding snow.

Well, my boss is a drunk so there’s a daily ‘wtf’ inspiring comment.  Ok ok, maybe she’s not a drunk but she goes and gets trashed during lunch like 3 x’s a week, at least.  But she’s young, pretty and well manicured so no one notices… but me.

Last week she was looking for a store and she said, “is Boston a state?”  I so badly want to say yes, but I told her the truth. 

I could keep going but I’d be here all day.  She actually didn’t show to work today because she got too drunk… at the office party.  Super classy.

I work for a university and I am extremely understanding when our student assistant has to miss work for a class or exam. I have no idea why your boss expects a OPS employee to make it in during a snow storm.  I think he is just realizing how helpful you really are 🙂 Take it as a compliment and tell him that you’ve made hot cocoa and are working on your christmas cards! Enjoy the day off!

If the weather is that bad, is anyone going to really miss him while he is at lunch?

Wow.  My boss has kind of a dry sense of humor.  I can never tell when he’s serious or when he’s joking around.

I have the boss that says, “I don’t care if the plows can’t make it out to clear the roads….YOU figure out how to get there.”  During the massive blizzard that hit several years ago, one of my co-workers snowshoed 5 miles to get to work.  Thankfully, my boss owns our office building and he has a fully furnished apartment on the 2nd floor.  So when it looks like a huge storm is coming in, I would just stay up there.  One time, the snow storm was so bad, I couldn’t leave the office for a week.  But it all worked out great because I was a 2 minute walk from my favorite restaurant, and beings I was staying at the office because I “had” to, I got to expense all my yummy meals to the company. lol

It sounds like he was thinking out-loud… it’s not like he really wanted/expected you to come in – he was just trying to plan his day (with lunch, being foremost on his mind).  I have this ongoing joke with my boss about the day revolving around lunch…. so, your post didn’t strike me as all that funny.  He should have closed his mouth and not said anything at all.  I wouldn’t worry about it – glad you stayed out of the snow!! 🙂
