When my boss stated that the group of us were having to go on a company retreat I was sort of nervous.
I sincerely love my co-workers well enough, even though I love them from a reasonable distance.
I have never spent that much time genuinely interacting with them on a one-on-one basis. You never know for certain what personality flaws are going to come out when you let down your guard. Additionally, I had some pretty serious concerns about the indoor air handling appliances at the lodge that we were renting. I have had way too many unlucky indoor air temperature control failures at rental properties in the past. It ruins the whole trip when you are feeling too cold or burning hot. Besides, I have a particularly strenuous internal thermostat that basically requires a lot of indoor air temperature control for me to be comfortable. I do not want to be the strenuous employee who acts pretty much like a tyrant over the central heating, cooling, and air quality control thermostat. Aside from all of my air temperature worries, the air quality itself plays a pretty crucial part in my health in addition to outlook on life. I have a brutal set of indoor allergy symptoms that do not play nicely with any amount of dust, dander, or mildew. If we actually wandered into the dwelling and found out that it was littered with airborne pollutants throughout the central heating in addition to the cooling system, I was going to be coughing in addition to sneezing the entire weekend. I did not voice any of these Heating in addition to Air Conditioning thoughts to my coworkers, even though I did set up a secret emergency escape system with my partner in case the Heating in addition to Air Conditioning was a problem.
