The boss sent me out of town for a seven day conference on solar heating

When my boss asked for volunteers to go to the June seminar on solar heating, I did not raise my hand.

My wife’s birthday is in June and I did not want to take any chances that I would miss her 50th birthday.

One guy raised his hand and the boss said that he was going to assign people randomly if he did not get two more volunteers. He couldn’t understand why no one wanted to go to the conference. It was being held down south in a nice sunny Resort town and we were put up in a five-star hotel. No one raised their hands so the boss decided to pick randomly and I was one of the people chosen. I talked to the boss after the meeting was over and I told him that I did not want to be gone when my wife had her birthday. My boss asked me when my wife’s birthday was going to be and I told him what date it was. He told me that was right in the middle of the conference on solar heating. Then he offered to pay for a second ticket so my wife could join me on the weekend of her birthday. I honestly never expected my boss to offer something so generous. I was completely surprised. He told me that he really wanted me to go on the trip and he hoped that I would be able to convince my wife that it was a good decision to go down South for a couple of days. When my wife found out about the free trip down south, she couldn’t pack her bags fast enough.

The squirrel poop was all over the AC condenser

My daughter made a bird feeder in school and my husband thought it would be neat to put the bird feeder up in the backyard.

He chose to hang the bird feeder in a spot that is just above the area where the grill is located.

The area is also close to the place where the AC condenser is located. Neither one of these things were taken into consideration when my husband decided to put the bird feeder up. He fills the feeder every three or four days, because the only thing eating out of that machine are the squirrels. The squirrels have eaten all of the seeds, nuts, fruit, and berries that have been placed in the theater. The birds eat some of it, but the squirrels are filling themselves with enough food for 3 months of hibernation. I told my husband that we should stop feeling the feeder, but he likes to take videos of the squirrels and post them online. There is now squirrel poop all over the AC condenser and it looks horrible. Every time I walk into the backyard, I use the hose to clean the squirrel poop off of the AC condenser. There’s no way it can be hygienic for that much squirrel poop to end up all over the patio. I think we should move the bird feeder to an area over by the fence where the squirrels won’t be able to get to the AC condenser or the grill. I don’t think it’s too much to ask for the feeder to be moved.

Overnight, things can get hairy from time to time

I like my job working as a security guard.

I have to walk the lot every single night from 11:00 p.m.

until 7:00 a.m. I get a paid half hour break at lunch time. It’s my job to simply walk around the perimeter of the parking lot and observe and report. I carry a weapon just in case there are problems, but I am instructed not to use that weapon unless deadly force is used on me. Overnight things can get hairy from time to time. We didn’t have many problems until we installed a security shack. The security shack is a place on the property where security officers can sit and warm up during the winter months. There are times when it can get down to the single digits or even lower during the winter months. We started having lots of vandalism after the weather turned cold and the security guards stopped walking the perimeter the whole evening. Well the security guards were enjoying the heated shock, vandals were destroying the building. I never spent much time in the heated shack. It was nice to have a place with a small space heater, but it just made me feel tired and even more cold when I had to go out and patrol. I only sat inside of the heated shack while I enjoyed my lunch. I took off my boots, hat, and coat so I could warm up during those 30 minutes. I am clearly the best security officer since I don’t take advantage of the heated shack

The HVAC tech was super cute with a great smile

I had to call the commercial HVAC provider, because the chiller in the back of the store was making a very strange sound.

  • I told my boss that the sound was getting louder and louder, so she told me to call the company listed on the back of the cash register.

The HVAC company has come out to the store in the past a few different times to help with heating or cooling problems. I contacted the company and explained the issues that we were encountering. The answering service called me back ten minutes later and I was told that someone by the name of Chris was going to be coming to help. When Chris arrived, I was surprised to see a woman. I am absolutely not a sexist person, but I have never had a female HVAC technician in the past. It wasn’t strange, but it was definitely a surprise. The woman was clearly knowledgeable about the chiller and other HVAC subjects. She got right to work and found the problem. She was finished with the HVAC repair in less than an hour and I never got a chance to ask her for her phone number. She was super cute and had a great smile and I would have liked to get to know her a little bit better. I secretly hope that another problem with the chiller will happen soon so I have an excuse to call the commercial HVAC repair provider. I just need one more minute with her and I think I could absolutely fall in love.

Heated floors can save you money

Last year, for my birthday my sister Amy surprised me with a trip to the mountains.

She knows that I like to get away from the neighborhood and relax in a peaceful environment, so that trip to the mountain was perfect for me.

She rented a four room cabin and invited my best friend Lisa and our cousin Sasha, it was the perfect surprise girls trip weekend. I had stayed in a few cabins before, but none of them compared to the place that Amy rented. This cabin was a luxury lodge with a lot of bells and whistles, and it had a lot of smart technology. It had a fireplace that could be controlled using a tablet, also all the lights were connected to the same system. So were the blinds and the heating and air conditioning system, we could control it all using one device. But the best part about this luxury lodge was that it had radiant floors in the bathrooms. I was in heaven because it was in the middle of wintertime and those floors were perfect. It made stepping out of the shower a pleasant experience. Now, I am even considering installing radiant floors in our home. After doing some research, I found out that the radiant floors can not only save me money on our energy bill, but they are also relatively easy to install. Because I would only install the radiant floors in our bathroom, the cost would be less than $2,000 because of the square footage of the space. So, these radiant floors are entirely affordable and worth the money.

There is a shortage of heating and cooling workers

The fantastic news is, in the same article, I read that more girls are becoming HVAC workers

Last week while I was now working at the office the a/c randomly malfunctioned, and thankfully, the temperature outside wasn’t too hot, the temperature was in the mid-70s, so it was quite pleasant, which means that when the A/C broke, the building didn’t become too uncomfortable,, I called the repair supervisor so that he could schedule an appointment with our HVAC provider. Our HVAC provider had a backlog of repair calls and did not have any HVAC workers available for that day. I had read somewhere that there is a shortage of HVAC workers, as well as the industry is consistently growing but they can’t find enough talent to fill the new positions. There are a lot of older HVAC workers who are retiring, as well as that wave has caused the shortage in the industry. Unluckily, the younger generation are becoming less as well as less interested in taking on skilled blue-collared tasks. They are more interested in the new tech tasks that are currently on the rise. As a result, the HVAC industry is seeing the impact of that. The fantastic news is, in the same article, I read that more girls are becoming HVAC workers. In fact, the industry has placed incentive programs in place, like scholarships that would appeal to young girls interested in becoming workers. I assume having representation is great, as well as if the industry is having a hard time finding talent, it is a smart move to broaden the pool, but perhaps one day soon, the HVAC provider for my contractor would have some girl workers as part of their team.
