Last Friday at work, I was having a rough day.
- I woke up late and I missed the train.
I was an hour late and I didn’t get a chance to sit in on the morning video call with some potential investors. I was hoping to meet with some clients at lunchtime, but they canceled at the last minute. I sat in the office all afternoon and I had a tuna salad sub from the deli for lunch. Shortly after lunch, I got a call from the maintenance team. They wanted me to know that the AC was going to be off in the building for 30 minutes. They needed to make an AC repair and it was necessary for the equipment to be off. Since it was only 30 minutes, I decided not to alert the rest of the staff. When I saw the support team on the phone again, I knew it was going to be bad news. Sure enough, the AC was going to be off for a lot longer. The repair could not be made due to a different problem with the cooling equipment. I had to tell the staff, since the indoor temperatures were already getting warmer. The last part of the day was really hot and miserable. I decided to let the staff leave at 2pm. The sun was directly overhead and everyone was sweating and uncomfortable. I stayed there until the AC problem was resolved. Thankfully, they worked out everything before dark. I really enjoyed the ride home with all four AC air vents pointed in my direction.
