Re: OT: to my friends

Kitty: You get sleepy when you get hot??? That's how I get when I am
cold...very sleepy...and it is so difficult to regulate the temperature
in such a large hospital as the one I work in...freezing or
boiling...nothing in between.

> idiots here at work who like to run the air conditioner in
December.<br><br>Well, Pam, you just described me, sort of. Our weather
in neIN fluctuates<br>and althought today's high will only be the high
20s with no sun, a week or<br>so ago it was low 50s and very sunny. When
it is sunny and 50s our building<br>where I work absorbs that heat and
the thermostat showed 78 degrees in the<br>front office where the only
windows are. My office is in the center of the<br>building, no windows
and I have 3 track lights bearing down on me with a hot<br>computer next
to me, which all yields a temperature of about 82 degrees in<br>my
office with no air circulation in the afternoon after
lunch.<br><br>About 3pm I went to the front office and switched the air
on for a few<br>minutes. As I walked away, the secretary got up and
turned it back to<br>heat - which I knew she would, but didn't expect it
that quickly. So I<br>turned back and switched it again. She started
yelling that the heat<br>hadn't been running most of the day and I told
her I had to have just a<br>little air circulation, just 5 minutes,
please. She relented sullenly. I<br>did turn it off after 5 minutes. If
the boss wants to pay me to sleep,<br>fine, cuz that's all he'll get
from me in an 80+ degree office with no air<br>circulation.<br>-----
