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

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.

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.
