Things are really heating up at this public relations firm! And when I say this, I mean it quite literally. Today seemed like any other, as we all settled ourselves at our desks with our morning brew close at hand. Then, one by one, like a chain reaction we started to realize it may not be our coffee causing us to second guess our sweaters. It didn’t take long to come to one very unfortunate conclusion: our air conditioning had gone kaput. This can be a big, big problem if you live in Los Angeles at the brink of June. Not to mention the firm is on the 6th floor with windows that take up the majority of the wall in each room. Our lovely sunny office with a skyline view somehow turned on us! As the day wore on, things were really heating up. Most of us resorted to shutting our blinds (something that rarely occurs, I could tell by the dust that was strewn about the room when lowering them); Not only that, we shut off the lights as well, resorting to going about our business in sheer darkness. Our office was basically transformed into a cocoon as we used any method possible to beat the heat. You try doing monthly updates while sweating bullets, it ain’t easy!
Now it is around 6:00pm and the air is finally back. Everyone is beginning to regain their cool, in every sense of the word! We are very aware there are worse things in life, but we’ve definitely learned to appreciate the airflow we have going on in our office! Happy Thursday everyone! Tomorrow is Friday! Horray!
