A freezing surprise

I had a real shocker when I came into work this afternoon, and it’s late October, and a freezing snap brought un-even temperatures in the high 30s this afternoon. I was very grateful for the furnace in our automobile as I was driving to work on our commute. It felt so fine that I did not want to leave our automobile once I reached the parking garage, but as I got out of our car, I took solace in the fact that at least it would be a short walk to our office where I was sure that the furnace was running. I walked through the front lobby doors at our office building, and I was met with a chill instead of a welcome wave of warmth. I figured they weren’t running the furnace in the lobby for some reason! Maybe the door was being opened too often. I did not know about it much, because I was sure that at least in our office, it would be warm. All through the walk to our office, and even in the elevator ride, I noticed that there was a chill in the air, and when I stepped out onto our floor, I could hardly know it. It was absolutely colder on our floor than it had been throughout the rest of the building. What on earth were the people in charge of the Heating and Air Conditioning plan thinking? Virtually everyone else was just as surprised and miserable as I was, and how could the people I was with and I be expected to work in these conditions? Then the people I was with and I found out that someone absolutely left the cooling system on! The cooling system was running as if it was boiling outside! Granted, it had been the previous afternoon, however someone has to keep up with the shifting weather in our fall season!
