I don’t know what to do. ?

Called and asked my supervisor to come in late to work because I have to travel to buy a car. I’ve never missed a day of work, never been late, always stayed over and worked my days off. I have no transportation because my only ride and I was in a accident an 18 wheeler ran us off the road. The thing is I’m trying. If I lose this job I lose everything & end up back on the streets. I just don’t understand what the problem is. I’m literally only missing a couple hours. But he says” we really need you because we’re short staffed” & that’s because they run everyone off with the unstable hours and not understanding that life happens. I just don’t know what to do.

    Personally, I wouldn't work for somebody like that.  Would you?

    You've been an employee at that company for quite some time. You don't have to ASK your supervisor if you can come in a couple of hours late. You phone your supervisor and TELL him that you're going to be late. It's not necessary that you explain WHY you're going to be late. 

    The worse that might happen is that your supervisor might require that you charge those couple of hours to your vacation time.

    Do what you got to do.

    If you can't make it on time, get there as soon as you can.

    You DON'T ASK your boss if you can be late. You tell him that you will be late. There is no need to explained anything about your personal business to him.

    Well, you're obviously not trying hard enough because you should be asking in the Careers & Employment category, not Cars & Transportation. Fail. Try again.

    Try taking him a copy of the police report. Maybe that will help.
