I think the boss is worse than the colleague in this situation. For all we know OP's colleague had an emergency to attend to, whereas we know for sure the boss didn't listen to OP's side of the story.

Even assuming OP didn't answer it, getting interrupted by call after call while trying to take a test of any sort, even one you're ready for and know how to do well, can be at best distracting.

It's pretty sad, I know :P but I've been driving to classes every day for a few months now, I'm getting better every day and I haven't hit anything or been pulled over so I can't be that bad, right? A lot of it just had to do with nerves of having a stranger there judging me, and just me being an idiot.. I was driving my moms minivan for all four, I dunno why I had such a hard time with it but I'm glad to have finally gotten past it.

23 Just relax and ignore the ol bastard.. I'll be honest, I was a little nervous first day but I looked in my mirror and saw my cute partner.. It calmed me down a little bit.. :)

We couldn't use our own cars.. We had to use their cars.. Theirs was better then what I had at the time.. The steering wheel was already half way around to be straight.. and very awkward...

I failed mine once because a truck was speeding around a corner ahead and almost hit me as I was turning. Luckily, I wasn't suspended from work for not being able to predict the future. Unless OP works as a fortune teller, it's definitely not his fault.

I didn't know how to parallel park and it took me a long time to park in reverse and I passed with an 87!! So I don't know how people have failed so many times!! And I took it after barely learning how to drive 2 months before.

taking your driving test should never be a competition that's how accidents happen! some people fail for multiple reasons, you can't judge if they're a good driver (most of the time) by how many times they've failed. they might just be crap under pressure!

28 - and at this point nothing really helps with the driving test OR the job, but the job was only a suspension, not a firing, and not completely in their control, whereas the driving test was a fail and was fully within their control.

Unfortunately that's not how it works :-( it was op's shift so op's responsible even if there was someone to cover the shift. I don't get why your boss is giving you shit I mean of all things to get suspended for...

If that was me, I would have flipped. If someone says they can take your shift, they better damn well take responsibility and tell your manager if they can't make it for whatever reason if it wasn't some humongous emergency. If everything was in the clear beforehand OP, you shouldn't have been the one to get in trouble, FYL.
