Work in the office-

A few weeks ago, I had to go into my office to do some work. I usually work from home, so it is not common for me to spend an entire day in the office. I’m able to do everything I need to do from my home office. However, I was working on a project that required me to coordinate with some of my coworkers, so I figured it would be easier to go in for a day. When I arrived I was instantly upset because I found that the air conditioner was not working. I asked my coworker how long the A/C had been out, and he said it have been that way for about a week. I learned that the manager had put off calling an HVAC technician for a few days because he did not want to pay for the repair. I thought this was ridiculous and extremely unprofessional. An HVAC system is a necessity in any office, and workers cannot be expected to get their jobs done without a climate-controlled environment. I knew that there was no way I was going to get my project done because I did not want to be sweating while trying to focus on my work. I asked the manager when he thought the HVAC system would be repaired, and he couldn’t give me a clear answer. All he could tell me was that the HVAC company had been notified about the issue. I lost my cool for a minute, telling him that it was unreasonable to expect everyone to work in this kind of conditions. I try not to get upset at work, but this pushed me over the edge. My boss ended up telling everyone that they could work from home until the air conditioner had been repaired.
