I'm back home.
HUGE FREAKING SURPRISE.
Thank goodness I didn't even bother to shower this morning.
I got to work at 10:30AM.
Then I was sent back out on an errand, that's when it started freezing rain.
When I returned I made darn sure that my department knew of the freezing rain.
Then other departments were let go.
Some people were just leaving. Others got permission.
I kept the up to minute news weather information on my desktop.
It went from bad to worse in ten minutes. Then they started closing down freeways.
OK--that is a sign that you need to go home.
Our department was the only one left. The only one!
Then there was an announcement that they closed the building.
You'll never believe what my Boss' answer was to that. Are you ready, here it comes:
"I'm not ready to go"
They closed the offices down, the facilities/ cleaning crew was leaving! HELLO.
I work for a bunch of workaholics. They come into office on Sundays. Uh-huh.
Its all about the 'face time'.
Me and a co-worker rolled eyes at each other.
Was she kidding us?
She actually went to her higher up, also a workaholic, to discuss the building closure while we waited and watched the building crew fly out of there. They didn't need to be told twice.
Oh and then we have a half hour meeting to discuss our projects and where we are at before we can leave...oh it almost killed me.
I just knew I'd be right back here before Oprah comes on. Why did I bother going in? WHY?
But I'm safe, no slips on the road, and no fishtailing either.
I hope everyone in North Texas takes it safely :)
