I had the air conditioning equipment working the other day, because it was warm & humid. I woke up this day, & I was so nippy that I was shivering. I suddenly got dressed, turned off the air conditioning, & put on an overcoat. I was going to turn on the gas heating equipment, however I still hadn’t had it maintained. I pulled my overcoat close & went to the closet. Somewhere, in the back of the closet, I had a small area heater, & I was planning on putting it in my office. I came to realize that I was on an impossibly narrow schedule, & I was doubting I was going to make it on time. If I was sitting in my office shivering, I knew I wouldn’t get my work completed before the deadline, & I would end up being penalized. I called the Heating & A/C equipment supplier to get my gas furnace maintained, & then I found the area heater. After plugging it in under my desk, I could soon feel heat making its way over my feet. Once my feet got warm, I felt less frosty. The area gas furnace was doing its task. I was just getting into the groove & my job was going pretty well when the Heating & A/C supplier called. The Heating & A/C equipment serviceman was going to be at the beach property within an hour. I didn’t expect him so soon, & I wanted to finish a fair amount of my job before he showed up. Once the Heating & A/C equipment serviceman got to the property, it took so long for him to finish that I chose to give up on my deadline & called the boss. I told him I was going to be late because of heating equipment problems.
