Forecast last night was for rain w/a little bit carried over into this morning. I called my crew leader to tell him I wanted a later start as it was still drizzling a bit at 6:30 a.m. He lets me know one of the guys wouldn't work today because it was raining...no call the night before, no excuses or apology - just refuses to work today. I say 'that's my call...not his. He's gone, even though it will put me in a bind (for a week or two). Meanwhile it's now 9:30 a.m and the sun is shining and the forecast calls for a nice day. This guy has been with me long enough to know we only work in bad weather when it's absolutely necessary...we had two half-days just last week because of rain. Guess he wanted to make sure I knew how he felt. Anybody out there who would have let him come back the next day?
