Don't worry about that. This FML is obviously written by the employee who was late and got written up by her supervisor. Now, she's mad that her boss didn't give her the chance to explain, so she tried to think of a worst case scenario to make herself feel better. So anyways, this whole thing is the fantasy of a loser.
Well.... of course they would be mad....but they should still listen for an explanation... If your mom had just attempted suicide you're probably going through a lot of emotions and work is not the first thing on your mind... I'm never late to work, rarely call out, but if my mom tried to commit suicide, I'm sure as hell that the first thing on my mind wouldn't be about calling my work. Wouldn't even think about it. I would just be there for my mom. Work would definitely be an after thought.
When an employee can't make it for whatever reason, they are supposed to call! I'm sorry her mom attempted suicide, but all she had to do was call and say, "I'm up to my eyeballs in emotional turmoil right now, I can't make it!" A boss has the right ALWAYS to write someone up for now showing up to their shift!
Way to explode too soon! Didn't you notice this is out of her character??? YDI.
How would you have known? IMO, not your fault.
