Attention!

All you Office Barbies who shriek "Ohmygawd it's FREEEEEEEZING in heeeere!" when the temperature goes below 72° and crank the heat up to 85, thus making my life a living hell:

Now it's actually freezing. Go outside and stand around in that for a while, then come back here and tell me to my face that 72° is cold. I dare you.

I work with them, too. But it's not too cold to go out and smoke a cigarette for them, isn't that odd.

One place I worked at had a fake thermostat. The real one was hidden elsewhere. All the people who were freezing would adjust the fake one then remark that it was all warmer finally, even though they didn't actually change a single thing.

=( Poor lion!


Though... could be 81 inside and I still shiver. Long as it's cold outside... I'm cold. Don't ask me how it works...

It's always cold in my office, as she-boss is always 'hot' and rules the thermostat with an iron fist. I've refused to learn to work the darn thing, just so I can honestly say "I didn't touch it," when the daily temperature drama begins.

Air conditioning on. Middle of winter. Does not compute.

Ah well :)

What bothers me is that I'm willing to meet people halfway -- I know I like the temperature noticeably lower than most people do. But once I'm down to a short-sleeve shirt, there's not much more I can take off, whereas the cold people can put on a sweater -- but it seems like the office temperature is set to accommodate them and I'm told to suck it up.

*nods* It's easier to add layers than shed them. :)

"Office Barbies"

How well you capture the shallow, vain, chattering micro-female personailty that seems to pervade cubeville in a simple description.

Back in PA I always reflected that if we got snowed in, we could stack and burn them like campfire sticks.

Because goodness knows we wouldn't be able to eat them, even with a good marinade. All bitter and bony. They'd taste horrible.

Glad you like it! They're sorta the female equivalent to the Joeys. :)

For the next couple weeks, they have been connecting the new building to the old. Today, for anyone who works on the east side of the courthouse, it IS freezing in there.
Muahaha!

One of my supervisors threatened to take off his shirt if the temperature was kept too high. "And you DON'T want that," he added. XD
There's plenty of office whining here about the temperature, but nobody's ever 100% happy so I don't think it ever gets changed. Someone's gonna complain either way.

Because UK homes dont have A/C by standard (due to our traditional temperatures), its a relatively new thing, I mean big stores have them but small shops dont, but as the UK summers start being hotter than California, more places have been getting A/C, and new stores all get A/C as standard. Where I work is a new store with new A/C, but people dont seem to know how it works, so its eitiher set to "Freezing" or "Tropical". Annoyance.

Question: are these office barbies usually wearing skirts and heels even though it's the middle of winter? That could be part of the problem right there. I don't know if it's the same for women as it is for us guys but if my legs and feet aren't properly covered and kept warm then I'm cold all over, no matter how many layers I've got on the top half of my body.

What's worse is they do this down here. I go outside in a sleeveless shirt and am saying how glorious the 65 degree weather is, and Jessica is shivering in a sweatshirt and running to her car telling me to hurry up!

They actually turn on the heat when it gets below 70!! oy! Bunch of Florida wussies.....
