A/C broken

The A/C on the second floor of my office (where I work) is broken, and has been since at least yesterday. It's currently 86°F in here, and we have all the shades pulled down. If you reach behind the shade, you can FEEL the heat radiating off the windows.

At least I had the foresight to (a) bring seltzer and put it in the fridge (so that when we run out of bottled water AGAIN I'll still have something to drink), and (b) NOT wear my wool pants.

Just 2½ hours until I can go home, make myself a nice frozen fruit smoothie, and hop in the pool.... Just 2½ hours...

Oh no on the no AC!!!! Keep as cool as you can. Hopefully they will get it repaired soon.

We just got an email saying that it's the compressor that services 2/3 of the building... they have it up and running again at 75% cooling, but it will probably take the rest of the day to bring the temperature back down noticeably. (The replacement part is supposed to be coming in first thing tomorrow morning, but who knows how long they'll have to take the A/C down again to fix it.)

I don't know how I'm going to get any more work done today, honestly.

We've had semi-weekly AC breakdowns practically since I got this job. 85 degree offices with a sub-zero windchill was an interesting experience. Can your job be done remotely at all? VPN is your friend in cases like that.

It could be done remotely, but it's not company policy. (Very traditional company here, with set working hours & strict dress code.)

Not to mention that going home wouldn't help much - no A/C there, either... I can't really work from the pool ;)

I expect you could manage with a lot of plastic wrap and external keyboard/mouse.
