    Turn up tomorrow and blame the snow?

    Is it bad by you?

    Even though this snow thing is pissing me off, I'll let you get away with it this once.

    yeah just turn up a bit earlier, give yourself a chance to make some old waffle up, then see what Mr Interview says, with the current weather, im sure you could use that if you havent already bro.

    if its an ok job your going for then try again

    Don't blame the snow what ever you do, your (hopefully) new employer might think your using it as an easy excuse. If you can don't make any excuses because he might just think your making an excuse and you don't want your first impression to be a lie! Also do what Kem said, show up early looking eager and be apologetic, this way he might see past today and forget about it!

    good luck man. some employers can be ruthless though.

    i once heard about this group interview where the employer asked everyone to bring a pencil with them. at the start of the interview he kicked out everyone who had bought a pen because they couldnt follow instructions properly.

    It's not a piss poor excuse for being late.

    For not turning up it is, but not for being late.

    Buses going slow because it'd be dangerous otherwise, which is actually true.
