Yeah it's pretty bad guys.The sad thing is we don't even have a recovery machine or cylinder on our truck.A few times after putting refrigerant in he had me take the gauges off with my fingers while yelling go fast or it'll hurt..well no ****!
Not even using low loss fittings on the hoses? Drugs and alcohol in a moving vehicle?
Go cut lawns or firewood or throw papers. Get the heck out now before you get arrested and get a record. Is he going to bond you out of jail and pay your fines? RUN
The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....
How much is your self-respect worth?

Mow lawns, deliver pizzas, stop by every school district within 25 miles and tell them you are looking for substitute custodial work (not a great job but I've done it for a few weeks when I NEEDED a job.)
Just don't show up tomorrow morning. It's not worth it.
If you get caught up in his problems, a criminal charge might prevent you from finding another job ever.
Spend the day tomorrow looking for some other work.
