Is it hot in here? Or is it just me?

Photodisc | Thinkstock

I know this may sound crazy but sometimes I actually like coming to work on really hot summer days. I drive to work in a tank top with the sun roof open and let the wind blow in my hair. Then I layer back up in my scrubs to go to work and as I’m walking in, I think, wowzahs, it is really, really hot out here.

Just think, in the summer when it’s blistering hot outside, I get to spend all day long in a super cold air conditioned environment with two great financial benefits. One, I don’t have to pay the air conditioning bill and two, I actually getting PAID to be here. How great is that???

The problem with this, of course, is I’ll never get a tan. The other problem is that there is no ice cream truck trolling the hallways.

    Lucky you. I work in a nursing facility attached to the hospital. Its an old hospital in Iowa, and they don’t have AC, they have “air chillers”. which is a fancy name for swamp cooler (air runs through running water). So even when its cooler, its humid. and then when its down to 75 deg, the elderly ladies want a sweater. My hair is usually wet halfway up the back, my scrub top sticks to my back, and I use a major amount of Gold bond powder everywhere before going to work and my Secret usually runs out about 4 pm.
