Default Jumpseating on Skywest

So I found myself in beautiful Santa Maria (SMX) yesterday trying to pick up one of our aircraft from the paint shop. Of course, the ship was not ready and I did not feel like getting a hotel and staying in SMX for 8 hours. I tried to JS on Skywest. My airline is in CASS, but does not have a reciprocal with Skywest. I asked if I could speak to the Captain when the aircraft arrived to get a ride to LAX, and the lady said "no". She said that a captain could not override the procedures manual. Any thoughts on this guys/gals? I thought the Captain had final authority? Did I just ask the wrong person on the wrong day? Thanks for any imput.
