I walked a mile to the closest subway station, fighting wind and blizzard conditions, then waited, it seemed forever, on the sub-zero platform for a train, and got to work on time. It took me nearly two hours. Out of hundreds of employees, only a handful made it in. After about a half-hour (about the time I'd warmed up,) we were told to go home, so I repeated the two-hour trek. To add insult to injury, everyone got paid for the snow day and we few who struggled didn't even get a 'thank you.' I never made an extra effort for that company again.
