I just woke up

Just want to know what you guys think

I just woke up and the power went out overnight, I'm an hour and a half late for work. However, they will never know if I am supposed to be gone or not or probably notice that I am gone at all with the way that the command structure is organized. However, if I do show up they will for sure notice that I'm late. Should I skip the entire day on the 95% chance that they will be completely clueless? Or should I go in and just give them the lame but true power outage excuse.

Tell them you got gas....really, really bad gas and won't be able to make it in today...

~Actually had an employee (female) do that one time~

If it were me I'd go in and fess up.

If they do find out you are gone, it's a lot easier to exlain sleeping in than skipping the entire day. You may feel silly, but it's something that could happen to anyone.

If you're dead set on skipping the day, call them and say you were up all night sick, finally got to sleep at 4am and then slept in.

Get a clock with a battery backup.

Go in, and fess up. As long as it hasn't happened before...

yeah, I'm going to start using my cell phone from now on. Nope it hasn't happened before, but this is my sixth day on the job so it really sucks. Especially since this boss is a psycho that is enamoured with firing people. I'll just cross my fingers and go in.

Isn't that one reason to set your cell phone alarm, you do have a cell phone, correct?

Live a little. Skip the day, and see if they notice.

If they do, claim that you called in. Or something like that.

Well, if the power actually went out, there is proof. What kind of job/field of work?

Only 6 days on the job...I would go in to work late and tell the truth. If the power really went out, then they will know it also.

Haha..I missed that part. If I were your boss and found out, i'd fire ya. Nothing personal, but when you are late in your 6th freaking day on the job, that usually is the beginning of a trend.

I was thinking the same thing. Of course, the fact that you're actually considering skipping the entire day on your sixth day on the job pretty much says it all.

I didn't want to say anything, but only being there 6 days...I would think they would really notice him being gone.

I think they would miss you when they notice no burgers were being flipped on the grill. McDonald's is like that.
