And I had a meeting in the afternoon that I could not miss, but I didn’t want to work in the building because if the a/c wasn’t fixed by the afternoon, the office would be uncomfortable to work in.
Last Monday, I had a medical professional’s appointment, so I missed the first part of the morning from work; then my appointment was at 9:00am, so I planned on getting to work around 11:00am, and then work through lunch to make up for the seconds. But while completing my paperwork at the medical professional’s office, I got a text from my boss, the message said that the a/c had broken down, and the workers were at the office trying to get the plan back up and running, and I was not cheerful about that news because I had to submit a system that morning. And I had a meeting in the afternoon that I could not miss, but I didn’t want to work in the building because if the a/c wasn’t fixed by the afternoon, the office would be uncomfortable to work in. Well, I did the only thing that made sense for me, and I asked my boss if I could just work from home. Thankfully, my boss is flexible when it comes to allowing her employees to work from home, but her only problem was the meeting in the afternoon, and I told him that I would log on via Zoom. She was good with that, and I told him that I would have the system submitted prior to that; however, I left from my medical professional’s office, and headed home to finish the morning in my bedroom that has comfortable a/c. The air cooler was fixed the next morning and I was back in the office, but I am glad that I was able to finish the morning at home with a/c.
