take the bus. call a friend. call an uber. anything. on your first day at your dream job, you do what you gotta do to get there. then when you call you can say, my car didn't start BUT I found a way in anyway.

Ah yes. The old broken car excuse. He's probably heard it many times before. It's unfortunate for you that yours happened to be true. I felt the same way the day snails really did eat my homework.

If your position at that company was so replaceable where your boss could fire you without a second thought, then you dodged a bullet . Your talents were clearly not valued there, and you therefore had no leverage in keeping your position . Good luck OP.

Playing the devil's advocate... There are many companies that have high expectations for their employees. This boss does not know anything about the OP except that he passed the interview - but his actual work ethic has still yet to be proven. Therefore, of course OP was replaceable - the boss doesn't even know him/her! Perhaps to the boss, they were thinking that /they/ dodged a bullet. It's unfortunate, but no need to antagonize the boss.

Sounds like your boss was an asshole. Sorry you missed out on the job, but hopefully you'll find one where your talents will be appreciated and your superiors more compassionate :)

I agree, try and salvage with HR. Show any receipts related to any work done or parts bought for your car. Think about your boss too, maybe he was up to his eyeballs in bullshit and his immediate reaction was to destroy anything else that came his way. Dreams are worth saving, and from this point forward anything you do and say needs to be done with conviction in your word and confidence in your approach. BE GENUINE. BE ON POINT ALL POINTS AROUND. Goodluck OP, you've got this.
