...could flow from my mouth (or my fingers, in the case of this blog) at this very moment. Here in Alabama the heat index is hovering close to 100ºF, cloud cover is minimal and the library's AC is out AGAIN due to yesterday's fleeting electrical storm at lunchtime. It's been out for a full 24 hours now and the building is sweltering. WE ARE THE ONLY LIBRARY IN THE COUNTY THAT DOES NOT CLOSE WHEN THE A/C IS OUT!!! We've already had half a dozen patrons come in to study and turn right back around and leave. My coworker asked me if I'd heard any word about us closing and I hated having to let her know that that's not what we do here...get a sweat rag and a bottle of water and settle in. I got the fans out of our workroom so Teri and I are not dying by any means, but I have sweat running down my scalp and back and I'm not feeling at my most professional...shouldn't situations like this be covered by OSHA? I guess not, other wise steel workers wouldn't have to go to work...
I don't mind in the least sweating when that's what I intend to do (exercising, working in the yard, cleaning house, etc.) but not while I'm at work in my wonderful, supremely-appreciated white collar profession. The white collar in question is currently transparent with sweat!
enough whining from me today!
