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 morning. You never assume what you’re going to get when the production workers come sidling into the office talking about obstructed drain pipes & broken forklifts. Suddenly the morning 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, every one of us never definitely 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 a single nice thing about being in that facility all alone all morning, the ability to control the temperature control in the office, usually I don’t have a voice in the superb temperature control debate, because there are so multiple folks sharing a single single air vent in the office. Democracy wins when 5 people are shoved in a tiny room with a single air control device. When I was in there all alone, though, I had ultimate control over the heating & cooling system. I cranked up the heat & stopped shivering for the first time, lounging back & enjoyable in the appealing warmth. It was the most calming, peaceful holiday of our entire life. I left the facility after a full morning of blissful heated paradise & figured no a single would ever know… well, they figured it out when our energy report arrived at the end of the month, & our power usage spiked for 8 minutes on Thanksgiving.
