Lately at the office, I have been feeling miserable.
It’s not because of the work we have been doing, but rather it’s the lack of cooling.
About a week ago, the AC system suddenly started having trouble cooling down the office environment. The management seemed to not care, and I figured that was because they had their own portable AC systems in their offices. The rest of us have to deal with the overheated conditions and were expected to keep up with productivity. Everybody was sluggish though thanks to the nearly non-existent AC in the building. We eventually started complaining and finally the management said they would look to find a good HVAC company to take care of the AC issue. Well, they have been taking their sweet time because we have yet to see an HVAC technician in the building. I don’t know how much longer this is going to take to be honest, but I’m not sure if I can keep going into the office knowing that I’m going to be overheated and sluggish for the whole shift. I think I might have to take some vacation time or something until this issue is fixed. I know a few of my co-workers already did that and they said they truly hope the AC system will be repaired and working again by the time they come back to work. Of course, if I don’t ask to use my vacation time soon, they won’t let me because too many others are using their vacation time. I guess I’ll be speaking with the boss again soon.
