Its been really cold these last few days, and as a housing officer, i hate having to go out and do maintenance inspections when its so cold.
Today though with a full day of maintance visits to properties over a wide area of the city, it decided to snow..and of course at this point all the tenants i saw wanted to drag me outside to look at roof problems or guttering and drains. Basically i got snowed on...and then, late morning the sleet started. By the time i had finished to go back to the office it was raining and i was truly wet and cold. Fortunatley we get issued big jackets that are quite good at being waterproof, but i still turned up at the office with the hood up and water dripping off my nose, hair, face, and any other exposed bit of me! I must have looked pathetic because a couple of people looked on at amusement at me (office bound staff i might add - who had the luxury of not leaving the heated office all morning).
I announced that i had been snowed, sleeted and rained on...in my most pathetic voice tone...do you think that i got any sympathy? Nope...of course not.....
Even now i am home, and i still am thawing out, despite my lovely warm house...i hate my job in the winter time!
