I did go for my work out this morning.
In the middle of the work out, the fire alarm went off.
So in my spandexy type capris pants and sweat soaked tee, I paraded myself outside, where I found – much to my horror and amazement – that there are actually quite a few people who work here in the morning. Nice.
Then I went in to the locker room to take a shower. I turned the dial all the way over to hot. After several minutes was there warm steam rising out of my shower stall? The answer to that question is: no.
Thinking it might warm up, I wet my hair and started to shiver. I decided that I didn’t have any option except at least washing my hair. It was horrific.
I went to the other shower stall to see if there was warm water there – nothing.
After toweling off and getting dressed, I thought I would enjoy the one warm thing I could enjoy: my hair dryer.
I plugged the hairdryer into the ONE and ONLY outlet in the locker room and… nothing. Nada. Zip.
It was a GFI outlet, so I hit the “test” and “reset” buttons multiple times.
So with a wet head, I packed up my belongings and brought my hair dryer to the bathroom near my office where I was at least able to get my head mostly dry.
I am laughing about this because it’s all so ridiculous. And really, I can’t complain too much about a free gym at work. Sure, there are a few kinks that need to be straightened out, but if that’s the worst thing that happens today, then that’s not too bad!
