My wife managed to make it home safely BUT nearly spun out twice.

Client kept her all day AND what is really pissing me off HE DIDN"T DO ANYTHING!!! There was no potential doctor's appointment --though half the doctor's offices canceled appointments.

He didn't have her do anything that they need to do- paperwork - that they didn't have a chance to do. IN FACT he went to his room and played video games for 2 hours!

Forget the fact my neighbors got sent home early that the snow plows haven't come down our street except twice early afternoon. This guys bitching that he can't understand what the big deal is it's only 6 inches of snow. She's lived in PA all her life she should be use to this. He's saying I can still see the grass it's nothing.

He than went on to say how he drove in the blizzard of the century. (1991 one) and how he and his buddies didn't rush home. They had dinner and cruised home.

I told her it was time to look for a new client and a new agency. I could respect she needed to make sure he was okay and had the basic needs met BUT for her to go there and risk her life just so she could basically sit there is BULL SHIT!

1. What a jerk

She most certainly needs to find a new client. One who might actually care about her well being and not just his own apparently selfish, bitter self.

2. Yep, time to look elsewhere...this client thinks he owns her.

Power-tripping, and it can only get worse.

3. Is this the same guy that was posted about earlier that made someone come to

work in this blizzard, or is this yet another asshole?

4. Yeah. Asked what my wife should do. Client won out my wife went and thankfully is home BUT

basically he insisted she come in NOT for anything important just to do stupid stuff. STUFF that COULD HAVE WAITED FOR TOMORROW!!! They had christmas leftovers in the fridge and they have a microwave. The guy is capable of pulling stuff out of the fridge and nuking it

6. Here's the best part. He can't wait until we are moved into our new apartment so he can have her

full UNDIVIDED attention.

She's "been slacking" You know worrying about a roof over our head. Being a witness against the slumlord. Trying to pack while still working 6 days a week for this jerk.

7. We live in snow country too, and here's how I weigh it.

A job is not worth losing your life or crippling yourself. If conditions are bad and the situation is not critical, we stay home. If it's an emergency, THEN you risk it. But certainly not for a job.
