Yesterday after lunch, I was supposed to help a co-worker with a ductless mini-chop A/C replacement task.
The more than one of us were going to tackle that task together and get it done in half the time it would normally take a single person to complete the work.
This would allow both of us to go lake house at a nice hour. I had lunch at a small taco stand on the corner of the street by the heating and A/C repair shop. I felt fantastic when I left to meet our coworker at the ductless mini-chop A/C replacement task. About 10 minutes later, I started to believe strange. My throat was starting to believe itchy and I had a light rash on our face. I called our boss and I told the guy that I believed I was having an allergic reaction to something from lunch. My boss got frustrated and accused me of dipping out early. I told the guy that I was going to go to the emergency room. He entirely wanted me to work, because he did not know a light rash was a large deal. I have never given our boss any reason to know that I wasn’t telling the truth, but he still wanted proof that I went to the emergency room. When I got to the emergency room, I found out that I was having anaphylactic shock and I needed a shot of epinephrine to combat the reaction. When I called our boss from the emergency room, he suddenly changed his tune and told me to take the rest of the day off and the next day too.
