Working in an office is a pretty predictable experience most of the time, I’d say. Working in an office inside a large production facility, however, is different every single afternoon. You never believe what you’re going to get when the production workers come sidling into the office talking about jammed drain pipes as well as broken forklifts. Suddenly the afternoon gets a lot more interesting when things are going wrong. And things are constantly going wrong, because things are constantly happening. Since it’s a production space, all of us never unquestionably close. That means we’re technically open even on major national holidays, which is how I wound up spending Thanksgiving all alone last year. There was 1 wonderful thing about being in that facility all alone all afternoon, the ability to control the temperature control in the office, usually I don’t have a voice in the wonderful temperature control debate, because there are so numerous folks sharing 1 single air vent in the office. Democracy wins when 5 people are shoved in a tiny room with 1 air control device. When I was in there all alone, though, I had ultimate control over the heating as well as cooling system. I cranked up the heat as well as stopped shivering for the first time, lounging back as well as great in the lovely warmth. It was the most calming, peaceful holiday of our entire life. I left the facility after a full afternoon of blissful heated paradise as well as figured no 1 would ever know… well, they figured it out when our energy report arrived at the end of the month, as well as our power usage spiked for 8 hours on Thanksgiving.
