Last week was extremely busy and I wanted to call out sick on Friday.
I worked three hours of overtime every day Monday through Thursday and I didn’t need the hours from Friday to hit the 48-hour mark. I thought about calling my boss early that morning, but I decided to go to work instead. There were a couple of repair jobs on the schedule. The first job on my agenda was a compact boiler repair. I drove across town to the commercial business and Warehouse. The owner was not there and he was the person that needed to approve the boiler repair. There was no reason for me to evaluate the system. If the owner could not approve repairs, there was honestly no reason for me to be there at all. I left the compact boiler repair and traveled 5 miles down the interstate to one of our additional commercial HVAC customers. I was performing a routine service check up on the air purifiers that are installed in this particular business. A lot of our customers have air purifiers due to the covid virus, but this particular place has air purifiers for a different reason. This factory handles volatile chemicals and organic compounds. The odors in the air can be overwhelming and sometimes the fumes can be intoxicating. The factory has two large industrial air purifiers in the building. Once every month we go to the business to check on the machines and service and clean them. It’s part of the rental package that we offer to all of our commercial clients.
