Have you ever heard the expression :when it rains, it pours?” My mom used to say that a lot, and when I was a kid, I had no clue what on earth that meant.
As I got older, though, I discovered it has nothing to do with rain.
It has to do with bad things happening. It is the notion that if one bad thing happens, more bad things are going to come crashing down on you, too. Thus, when it rains, it pours. This is true where I work. Right now, the troubles are weak and slow internet connections, a PC that is completely useless, a broken elevator, and now heating and cooling that has gone off the rails. The air conditioner in our boss’s office didn’t toil at all for the first multiple months. Finally, the HVAC crew discovered it wasn’t even connected. Then, at some point, we had a reception planned, and the air conditioner quit working again. It was a nightmare. The air conditioner repair techs came in and did something to make it toil for that night, but they never came back and put it right. At least that’s what I suppose happened. All I think is now that it is winter, we have so much heating running through the office that we are both miserable. I decided I was just going to give up and turn the whole darn HVAC plan off, then guess what? It still keeps spitting warm air out at me, even though the temperature control clearly reads “plan off.” NO matter what I do, I can’t get the stuff in our office to toil right; By far, the most aggravating is the deranged heating and cooling.
