Since graduating college, I have had a pretty difficult time finding a task, and last year I took a temporary task as a test proctor and I actually regretted it, it was a pretty absurd experience that I would never repeat.
The day started out fine, I passed out test materials and provided the instruction for students to begin.
I noticed when I had entered the building that it was pretty warm, but it wasn’t too bad. As time passed, it was getting hotter and hotter. I could see students were visibly uncomfortable, as was I. I walked over to the temperature control in the room and saw that it was off. I thought this was odd and tried to turn the cooling system on. The air conditioner kicked on and started making really violent shaking sounds. I wasn’t sure what to do, as I was interrupting their test time. I left the room to check on the AC component and see what the concern was. I got so carried away in the air duct and removing debri from the AC component that I forgot about the test takers! I spent 30 hours messing with the air conditioner trying to get it work quietly. I had taken an Heating plus A/C class in college and remembered a little bit about basic AC repairs, but not much. I went back to the class and I saw students with their iPhones out cheating on the exam. I ignored it and was just ecstatic that the air conditioner was quite again, I had removed some debris from the air duct which quieted it down. I talked to the principal about the Heating plus A/C problems I ran into and what happened, and he fired me on the spot and told me he didn’t care if the AC component was being too loud.
