Not that we needed any more proof, but Howard and Robin proved just how stupid and out of touch they are. There are plenty of reasons to stay home during a severe storm, it's possible to prevent something like a broken window or a leaking roof from destroying irreplaceable possesions just by being there and moving things to another area of the house. I made it very clear to my employer that if I felt it wasn't safe to travel or that my house or dog were in any danger I wouldn't be going to work during the storm. They were fine with that because they knew I wasn't just looking for a free day off and I've always showed up in the past when the weather was bad. As it turned out things weren't that bad in my area and I made it to work but I wouldn't have hesitated to stay home if I felt that was the right move. No job is more important than the rest of your life, only heartless insecure isolated people like Howard and Robin feel that way.
