Well, my orientation day was supposed to be yesterday, 10/29/2012 on Quantico MCB. Problem: HURRICANE~!|
According the quantico website, they were on condition yellow, meaning that reasonable delays for arrival were okay, everyone should report in. Monday morning, in response to an email I'd sent, I got a phone call telling me that orientation was still going on from 0800 to 1600, but they understood if I wanted to reschedule, which I thought was a good idea.
Then, at noon, they declared it a code red, and sent everyone home.
Even if I'd gone, I'd have to have gone back for the whole day.
Now I'm glad I stayed home, particularly since my shed blew over and I had to go collect power tools and a kerosene heater from my yard in the dark, at the height of the storm.
I haven't even worked for them for a day, and it's already gotten strange and funny.
