The Day the Office Turned into a Roasting Oven

Well if today had been Thanksgiving, we could have Roasted a whole bunch of turkeys in our office. Oh wait, we did. I should say, apparently I did it.

I'll give you the short story. No, I'm going to sum it up.

Our Air Conditioners (we have 3) are broken today. It is sooooo hot in our office. All the walls are basically south facing windows letting in all the summer sunshine. Meaning it is hot, hot, hot!
Like so hot, I don't even have the energy to make this into a funny story. And somehow all of this is my fault. We got an email from the boss-man telling us to reprogram the AC so that it was not turning on at night. And some how I was voted to be the one to reprogram them yesterday. And I did say that I didn't know what I am doing. But I did it anyway. And I thought I did it right, but now they won't turn on. And everyone is complaining. They've been complaining all morning. It is so irritating. And the heat isn't helping my patience.

I called the guy in charge of building maitenance and he said that he'll get to it when he can. He called back a little bit ago and said that someone is going to come out and take a look sometime this afternoon.

I think I'm melting faster than butter. A couple of people have gone home because its too hot. Oh to be an attorney and get to do things like go home whenever I want...

Okay. Actually. I don't want to be a lawyer. Let's be clear. No law school for me. Thank you. :)

The good news is that I got a Frogger App for my phone for free today. Just thought you'd like to know.


update: apparently someone tried to steal our AC units last night. the wiring was all cut. Good news is that this is not my fault! Bad news is that it isn't going to get fixed until next week. Wahhh!

2nd update: My boss let us go home at 3pm. Here is what my co-worker's thermometer looked like when we left:

Yes. That says 87 degrees. And that was in the "cooler" part of the office. Just so you know. :)
