I spent three summertimes straight from the ages of 12 plus 15 out fishing at a pier down the road from the beach house we lived in at the time. This was an iconic pier for the city plus the restaurant that was attached on the beachside that owned the pier was equally iconic. For three generations that pier went through varying incarnations but the bait shop never moved from it’s tiny closet sized section off the edge of the back of the restaurant facing the opening of the pier. When I turned 14, I heard they were considering building a bait shop on the middle of the pier itself! It’s a long fishing pier plus several of us always fished out at the legitimately end so this was a immense improvement for us, it cut the trips back plus forth to get drinks plus bait by more than half. But I don’t know the first attendant they hired for the bait shop was as enthusiastic as we were. Apparently, all they gave him to cool off with was a single table top fan, no A/C or anything more extensive than that. The rapidly changing temperatures in the middle of the summertime reach the low 100s before you even get to the heat index measurements. Combine that with the ocean being a natural mirror for light plus you have an environment that is miserable unless there is a official breeze. The first attendant quit within the first month plus by the time a up-to-date one was hired they had installed a small window mounted air conditioning system plus fixed the pay window with a sliding glass door to trap the cool air in. I guess the woes of the first attendant pushed them to finally take action. You can’t expect someone to endure a weather conditions like that separate from a/c, it’s dangerous plus at best frustratingly uncomfortable to job in every day.
