  • Its Getting Hot In Here





    ok, let me be the one to start moaning about the heat.



    why do we have to work when it is so hot??? its hideous in this office with no air con . we have switched the lights off in a pitiful attempt to cool the place down.

    i need your sympathy as well as we have no fridge in here so our drinks get very warm...come on everyone say aaaah poor thing....



    and its going to be even hotter in the next few days.



    i need an excuse to skive off...what can i say...the road melted and i couldnt drive to work...the heat made my front door stick and i cant get out of the house...



    what a moaner i am!!!!



    B) why am i doing this :lmao: when i should be loafing on a sun lounger doing this :zzz:

    Lol Annabel, we really are typical Brits, we're never satisfied :lol: Well, I suppose we are when it pours down and we get peace



    I'm sending you all my sympathy. Tomorrow why don't you get a few freezer bags full of ice cubes, you could make them last longer by putting them in one of those insulated bags if you've got one, then you can take some out every now and again and soothe your fevered brow



    Might not be a great idea, but it's all I can think of right now I'm not really up on the legislation about working conditions. I know there's a minimum temperature allowed, not sure if there's a maximum. Tell you boss he should be providing you with ice lollies



    You could always fake a faint, say it's from heatstroke and get sent home

      LOL



      We should have a siesta time like they do abroad when it's hot like this - like everything and everyone stops from 12pm-3pm ish...LOL.



      Sounds good to me!



      PS: The coolest place I've been today, bar the car with it's air conditioning (icy!) was Staples (the stationary shop) - it was iiiiiiiicy cold with the air cond!!

        No maximum temperature in terms of Health and Safety legislation. But your working conditions should be (that lovely word) reasonable. Keep an eye out on your thermometer.



        Your employer should try to reduce the temperature if it's an uncomfortable working environment, eg by installing air conditioning units.



        I would say that they should get you a fridge (at the very least). Start a campaign up! Are you in a union?



        I'm just off to get myself an ice lolly and sit in front of the fan.

          :lol: :lol:



          yes us brits are so lightweight when it comes to the heat. give me a nice cold snap any time, but not snow...i do not do snow.....



          i could definitely do the 'i feel faint' bit,. no probs...but my boss would probably make sure i finshed the work before i conked out!!!!!! :lol:



          i work for the tightest company going, if i told you some of the penny pinching nonsense that went on in here...such as we only ever put the hall and stair lights on if we have a client coming in, and the second they have been shoved outside the door they get turned off again.



          in the winter the heating only gets put on until lunchtime and then it is deemed that the building has warmed up enough and it gets turned off....



          this is how my boss has managed to buy himself a yacht and three houses....(much kissing of teeth going on now)



          plus i havent had a payrise since i started working here two and a half years ago, its just slavery pure and simple. and to have no fridge to boot, the ultimate insult.



          rant rant :P to working in the summer

            Forward, bretheren, to the revolution B)



            Time to give those bosses a piece of our minds. Btw, Annabel you're boss wouldn't be Ebeneezer Scrooge would he? Maybe we should pay him a visit (in fancy dress) next Christmas
