Happy to Report That Cold Offices Are Verified to Be Terrible

A Cornell University research study used the scientific method to determine that when temperatures in offices were below 68 degrees, “employees committed 44% more errors and were less than half as productive,” versus when temps were 77 degrees. FORTY FOUR PERCENT MORE ERRORS. This is important! This explains Everything (this explains my typos and your typos).

Mistakes aren’t from being distracted or wistful or uncommitted to the cause, they’re from being in an office with OPPRESSIVE CENTRAL AIR. Number one reason not to work in an office building: oppressive central air. (Number two: fluorescent lights.) (Number three: industrial carpet) (Number four: the color gray) (Number five: communal keys to the bathrooms)
