    So here it is nearly 4 PM on the day of the (cue the ominous music)

    THE FEBRUARY NOR'EASTER

    Surely the worst storm in history right?

    Well the fucking moron meteorologists are wrong again. It's 4 PM and we barely have an inch of snow on the ground.

    Now being reasonable people, we rescheduled our entire afternoon of appointments and sent the staff home. And lo and behold no blizzard.

    The way I see it, the fucking idiot weathermen cost me a couple grand at least in lost business for today.

    The subpoena is in the mail assholes.

    All our appointments called to reschedule, what could we do?

    I'm not going to pay the staff to do nothing.

    I was born and raised in N.E. and never needed a 4 wd car to get to work. So not having 4wd is no excuse.

    Where are you? It is horrendous here in S. Jersey. Most businesses sent people home this morning. Snow and 50 mph winds. The latest fb rumor is that the Walmart roof collapsed.

    Count your blessings skull. Better safe than sorry.

    Well I didn't really listen to them. All the people we had scheduled to come in did. I had no real choice but to close.

    And no Bones I am not paying my staff for not working. They can use vacation time if they want.

    so those are your excuses?

    a. you are in business you reschedule or the client books

    b. if your staff came in and you sent them home...you should pay them...they made an effort to be there

    so why did you close for the day again?

    Because all our afternoon appointments canceled because the idiot weathermen were wrong....again.

    And no I'm not paying people for not being here. they had the option to stay and catch up on some stuff or do some extra cleaning and we have some painting to do but they all chose to go home so no pay.
