It’s all I can do some days to convince myself to dress for the actual weather for my walk to work, rather than the temperature in my office. So. Damn. Cold.
I keep a pretty heavy sweater at work, and my co-worker and I were just talking about how we need to bring shawls or something for our legs when we wear skirts. Brr!
I realize every place is different and there’s “old buildings”, and “policies”, and whatever crap, but have you tried talking to the building manager? Our building manager is very concerned about saving money for the Foundation, and has gone out of her way to make sure we’re all working at a comfortable temperature (otherwise she’s paying to cool down the office in the summer, and paying for my space heater to heat it back up again).
It turns out that the building has fairly fine-grained controls for keeping areas at certain temperatures, so the hot people can have their cool, and the cold people like me can have warmth. I’ve barely had a complaint since I asked if we could bump my area up a couple degrees a couple years ago.
Maybe there’s a good (or bad) excuse, but maybe it’s worth asking.
