AC Woes

My office is, apparently, screwed up. There's a Thermostat Fairy out there messing with my head.

When this summer's heat wave(s) first hit, I noticed that I wasn't getting air conditioning in my office. I definitely notice, because the air conditioning vent is loud -- when there's cold air coming at you, you hear it. I wasn't hearing it.

So I called maintenance and asked them what was up with the a/c. They came by, took a look, and eventually fixed it. Yay!...

... That was two months ago. Since then, I've noticed that my office is still ridiculously quiet -- which means the air was not pumping out the way it was supposed to. I stopped complaining, though, because I think the windows here are specially formulated to minimize heat exchange, so it remained reasonably cool in here, if not actively air-conditioned.

For the last week, my little Weatherbug has been telling me that the outside temperature was 96, 97, 98 degrees. This without considering the humidity.

My air conditioning vent cared not.

Today, my Weatherbug tells me the outside temperature is 75 degrees. Yep. Seventy-five.

And today is the day my office is filled with the white noise that is cool air being pumped out of my air conditioning vent.

Just remember to call maintenance again before you start freezing...

Don't trust those work air vents. Our office is always hot, and everyone else is saying it is cold. I would use the fan on my desk, but it dries my eyes out... the dilemma!!!

Not long ago, the AC at work was acting up... like for a week. Arrgghh. I threatened to go home and get in the pool, and told them they should call me when it's 72 in the building, and I'd come back. Actually, I think I'm the only one there who gets away with shit like that, and sometimes I shouldn't press my luck, 'cuz they just take me up on it.

75? 75?!?! What I would give to ahve 75 degrees outside. Record setting heat here in Central Florida right now. I'm just glad my pool is finished.
