I share a suite of offices with four other professionals.
My superb friend and I get along particularly well & periodically socialize outside of office hours.
My superb friend and I don’t have several complaints against our boss, & the concerns that my pal and I do have with her aren’t that large of a deal. She’s particularly superb about giving us time off for appointments & doesn’t count it towards our getaway time. And she’s really generous with holiday parties & celebrations. I do wish, but, that she was better at communication, as she is a bit intimidating, but recently, my coworkers & I were discussing some of our physical ailments, & my pal and I noticed that my pal and I had a lot in common. My superb friend and I thought that maybe the a/c was causing some of our problems, as our boss enjoys it set at a really low, really cold temperature. My superb friend and I are always cold & need to wear jackets while at work. I’ve had a sore throat, & found out that several others did as well. Two of us have been having headaches, & asked our boss if my pal and I could have the temperature a bit warmer. She agreed, & it did help relieve the headache symptoms… But the most usual ailment among the group was an increase in allergy symptoms. My superb friend and I asked an Heating, Ventilation & A/C worker buddy if he thought that our problems were related to the office a/c, & he said that it unquestionably could be the case! He said that there might be a leak in the a/c HVAC duct, allowing unfiltered air to keep circulating in the offices. He also said that if the a/c filter isn’t changed correctly, our air could be contaminated. My superb friend and I talked to our boss about our sicknesses & asked that our Heating, Ventilation & A/C system be evaluated for possible problems. Thankfully, she agreed.
