The Coffee Shop Was Too Hot

I’ve been working from my home office for almost a year. In the beginning, I didn’t think I’d be here for so long, so I set up my work things on the dining room table. However, once my boss pushed back our return to the office one month, then another month, I knew I needed to create an office space. Luckily, I had an extra bedroom without any furniture that could be transformed into an office. I’ve been working from 9am to 5pm, five days a week in that room and I was beginning to feel unmotivated and cooped up. When the restrictions eased up in my town and local businesses began opening, I decided to take my laptop and work from the local coffee shop for the afternoon. When I arrived, I placed my belongings at the table and ordered my usual coffee. What I didn’t notice when I arrived though, was that the doors were propped open because the air conditioning wasn’t working in the building. The coffee shop was hot and stuffy, and the only air movement was coming from the open doors. It was a nice day outside, so I moved my things to an outside table instead. The fresh air felt great and the sunshine was warm. I worked for 30 minutes before I became uncomfortable. It was too hot inside and it was too chilly outside. I decided that the only way I could be productive was to return to my home office with my reliable HVAC system. At least I was able to get out of the house for a coffee.
