Today, a co-worker, who lives 30 minutes out of my way, had broken down so I picked him up. We were both 5 minutes late and both got fired. Our department takes 30-60 minutes to even start running. FML

So did anyone call to say they'd be late? Why couldn't your coworker have found someone closer or taken a cab? Frankly YDI, no matter if your department takes time to start running or not, late is late. Though, five minutes and you are fired is a bit of a stretch, so I'm wondering what else you both have done, because if that is a consistent thing that you are late, then you still DI.
