So. Last week two new people moved upstairs in my building, taking up Jake's old office. We also hired a brand new person (the research assistant position I was interviewing for) and she's in there, too.
Ever since then, it has been BRUTALLY COLD back in my office. The thermostat is out in Jake's old office. It's a new digital thermostat that has been in place for about a month. We never had a problem with it until ... THEY came over.
My office is FRIGID. I'm wearing a t-shirt, a long-sleeved shirt, and a sweater, and I'm still shivering. Cindy (my officemate) just came over and put her fingers on my cheek - ice cold.
My fingernails are a lovely shade of lavendar, even without the benefit of nail polish.
I'm seriously considering lighting the spare desk in my office on fire. It's only particle board rather than real wood, but I'm sure it will burn all the same. It might give off some noxious (and ultimately fatal) fumes, but that's only of secondary concern at this point.
And let me tell you something - walking around with CONSTANT HEADLIGHTS is a.) not funny, and b.) rather painful.Posted by Highwaygirl on April 15, 2005 04:04 PM to the category Work
