heat and bosses
Today was the first really HOT day for us here in the North. We hit 96 before any heat index. (may lose a bet yet, if this keeps up) A couple sections of highway buckled, thankfully I don't drive those particular ones. The plant where I work does not have air conditioning, most plants don't. The good thing about the overly hot conditions inside, means the boss stays in her little office :D So we went about our business, stopping for two separate safety meetings, you just have to love those. At the end of the day, the boss ventured out long enough to drop off tomorrow's schedule. The first words out of her mouth when she got to our little enclosed section was "God is it HOT back here, you really should have more fans." Yep, you think we didn't notice that all day? We are stuck in a side area with no direct ventilation, which she should know by now, considering she has been with the company 8 years. The aisle that runs along side of us has a lot of air movement. The only problem with that is we can only get some of that "cooler" air by sticking a huge barn fan in our doorway. Which violates a chitload of rules ten ways to Sunday. So we do what we are paid to do, although at a slower rate.
