Angry Wifeís boss is ticking me off

1. His family got COVID-19 in December and called us to bring his family some groceries
2. He called asking if I have extra bottle water, wife “yes “ “well Steve has 4x4 can he deliver us some we are out ( he has tap water but needs to boil it)”

It’s a 40 mile drive 1 way , snowing like heck, and I don’t work for him or take orders from him ,
I am in the doghouse with wife for refusing he should plan ahead for emergency supplies

Seeing yesterday’s thread about Shane helping someone out makes me wonder if you or your wife know anyone that lives closer that can help them out?

After they survive this crisis you can hold it over his head when it come time for a raise!

See for just 80 miles of driving in the snow you too can support an unprepared business owner. Sounds like one of those feed the children adds that guilts people into supporting charities that don't do anything to help.

In the spirit of keeping piece tell him you are on your way. Drive to the end of your street, park your truck, walk home, say you slide off the road and are stuck. Go get your truck a few hours later.

2 quotes I love ...

1. Lack of preparation on your part doesn’t constitute an emergency on my part!
2. If you fail to prepare you have prepared to fail.

Now that being said,I’m the only one in my small neighborhood that has 4 wheel drive. I offered to pick up whatever was needed. They didn’t need anything but appreciated the offer.
However, I did burn a 1/4 tank of gas yesterday running errands for family members.
Don’t mind that at all.
But no way in hell I’d run an 80 mile round trip to deliver bottled water for my wife’s boss!!

Your wife should be looking for a new job. He has no regard for human life.

Would your wife really want you to do this?

What is your Wife’s job title. If she’s anything other than his personal assistant, that is inappropriate on multiple levels.

If she is a personal assistant, that’s pushing it given the circumstances.

To me, Delivering him water isn't part of the job she signed up for and WAY outside the scope of her duties and responsibilites as an employee. If he's chicken ***** enough to hold her job over her head if she doesn't do it then she shouldn't be working for a boss like that anyways and you have one hell of a lawsuit on your hands.

Different situation if he lived right around the corner, cause I'd do that for anyone to help a fellow human being. But 40 miles one way in the snowy conditions... OH HELL NO!!!! That boss would definately be getting a piece of my mind.

I’m calling Bull shat. If he fires her for that shell find a better job. I have water, groceries, generator, and a bar b que put. He could of had all his stuff delivered. And btw, doesn’t matter if you have an eight wheel drive he’s not calling the shots in your life. Wife should tell him “my husband said he wasn’t going out in this weather”. And leave it there

Fed judge won't allow it. All in person. The hearing tomorrow is a formality but she won't suspend until Monday morning when jury selection begins. And she's appointed, not elected, so not much anyone can do. Ridiculous!
