That’s sucks. But did either of you call the office to let them know you were going to be late. Doesn’t matter if your 1 sec or 5 min late. You should have the Courtesy to let them know. Your boss might still be upset that your late but he at least knows what’s going on.

One second seems a little bit much

technology enables us to let our managers know these things beforehand. cellphones are made to communicate.... mind blown? sweet

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.
