The thermostat says 70°, but it feels so much colder, even when I’m not soaking wet
We hardly ever get rain where I live. There is a short period in the summer in which the chance for precipitation increases, but most of the time, the sky is fair and the weather is comfortable. This is why I don’t generally own very many rain jackets or umbrellas. This is what led to me having one of the most miserable days of work I have ever experienced. First of all, it was a Monday, so that’s never a good thing. Second of all, I got caught in a freak rainstorm on my way to work. I stepped into my freezing cold office building dripping wet! I was sure that I would catch a cold that day. A few other co-workers were in the same position, and we lamented the extremely high setting on the air conditioner even more. I was huddled at my desk, finding it difficult to believe that I would have to endure this discomfort for another 7 hours and 50 minutes! I made a point of trying to figure out who controlled the thermostat, but it was a fruitless effort. The thermostat says 70°, but it feels so much colder, even when I’m not soaking wet. I slowly and reluctantly began my tasks for the day, and gradually, I started to warm up and dry off over time. I’m seriously starting to think that it’s better for me to try and find a job where I can work at home, so I can enjoy my own preferred temperature on the thermostat. I also won’t have to step out into bad weather to travel to work!
