The other day, I woke up to a surprise day off from work. I was harshly gleeful by this because it is constantly nice to get an expected break. However, I was less gleeful when I woke up the next day to the same mail from my boss; A day off here as well as there is nice, but not when I didn’t plan to go without pay, then on the sixth day that the two of us received the email, I called my boss to see what was actually going on. It turns out that the heating in our office broke down “out of nowhere.” However, I didn’t actually see it as out of nowhere. The two of us have been experience complications with our oil furnace for years. I repeatedly told my boss that the vents were obstructed as well as air flow was poor. The air that did circulate throughout the office had disappointing air quality as well as was full of dust. I suggested that the two of us have the custodial staff wash out the filters or that the two of us call an Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C company to service the units. Because my boss is stingy as well as she had a million other things on her mind, so she pushed the oil furnace to the back burner. Now, the two of us have all been out of the task for almost a week. Given that it’s the middle of the winter, the busiest time of year for heating repairs, the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C specialists were not able to come in for a few afternoons. When they finally did come in, they said it would take many afternoons to install a brand up-to-date oil furnace. Therefore, the two of us won’t start to work again until next week. While I’ve enjoyed the unexpected vacation, this all could have been prevented if my boss would have listened to myself and others as well as called the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C company sooner.
