Cold inventory

Most of the time I actually love my task, it isn’t exactly a normal 9-5, and that’s quite important for me.

I work semi-remote and have quite a bit of freedom around there, because my boss has better things I enjoy than worry about numbers every morning! One of the difficult parts of the position, but, is the weekly inventory that I manage myself.

My buddy and I get a small crew of workers to come help us count, which actually speeds up the physical part of the task, but then the real fun begins when I get to work out the numbers, but that means I absolutely usually look forward to the physical inventory count in comparison. That is, until this month, when I arrived at the facility bright and early in the morning i was not expecting the indoor air temperature to be just as cold as it was outside. The outdoor temperature was about 35 degrees, and there was no relief indoors. That’s when I realized that normally when I arrive at work the heater has been running in the office for a few hours and the production machinery has warmed up the rest of the facility at least a few degrees. This early in the morning, but, there had been no hot relief in the entire space. My buddy and I all got our clipboards and inventory sheets, and braved the brisk air in the waredwelling wearing hats and gloves… Every hour or so everyone would run back into the hot safety of the small office to heat up a few degrees before returning back to the wintery temperatures in the production facility; By the time my buddy and I were done counting I was more than ready to sit down at a hot ipad to play with numbers all morning long with a space heater at my feet.
