You know that hot sticky feeling you get when the hair on the back of your neck is wet with sweat and your pants stick to your thighs? You know how awful that feels? You know how most people have that feeling while sitting outside in the summer heat at BBQs or baseball games or at swimming pools?
I get that sticky feeling inside. At my office. All. Day. Long.
Now, I wrote about this before, and I am sad to relay that the situation has gotten increasingly worse. Before, one only got that glistening feeling from walking around a lot, running between various meetings, etc? Oh but now just sitting at your desk envelopes you in a force field of heat. I just try not to move too much.
And it gets worse. Tomorrow begins temperature change day when all offices in my building will experience a three-degree change in temperature. Now, instead of being set at So Warm I am Sweating in My Cube, it will be set at So Hot I am Tempted to Show Up in My Bathing Suit and Flip Flops. Wah.
My question is: how has it been so hot before July’s temperature switch? Is it part of some conditioning treatment? Slyly get them so uncomfortable before July so that when we change the temperature, they hardly notice how additionally sweaty everyone looks? Hah!
Good thing my office relaxed the dress code slightly before all of this temperature shenanigans. However, I think our policy should be amended further during these hot sweaty days to allow for shorts, flip flops, and sarong dresses. In the meantime, I remembered to bring a fan, so when I get too hot, I turn it on, close my eyes, and pretend I am in the Caribbean.
