I've had bosses like that. As a matter of fact, this story is almost deja vu for me. Snow storm hit and I was one of only two people who came in to work. I made it due to 4 wheel drive, the other because she had wood and sand in her trunk (she was a Chicago transplant).
No one else came in, but everyone got paid. I and the other lady who came in got no extra pay, and no extra day off. What a drag.
The lesson I learned - act like the sheeple and pretend you can't get in. :sssh:
