When the janitor didn’t show up it ruined practice

Whenever the janitor didn’t show up at church last Wednesday night, it really ruined our choir practice! We were right in the middle of a heat wave last week and the temperature outside was hovering around 80 degrees, even after the sun went down.

It was pretty terrible.

I, for one, wasn’t about to spend any time anywhere without central air conditioning. That’s why I was so upset when I got to the church on Wednesday night to find that the thermostat wasn’t turned down at all. The janitor of the church is supposed to show up an hour before the choir practice so that he can check the thermostat settings and make sure that the air conditioning was working correctly. That’s actually in his job description and so I didn’t feel bad about the fact that I was really upset about him not showing up. I told him that if he’s not going to show up to set the thermostat, then he should at least let me know so that I can get there early enough to do it myself. Anyway, when we got to the church, the indoor air quality in the choir room was absolutely horrible. It felt so hot and humid in the choir room that there was no way possible to get the rehearsal going in there. Everyone knows that it’s hard to sing when it’s hot and humid. You can’t breathe very well and the indoor air quality affects your vocal chords. It really ruined our plan for the choir for the week. Next week, I’m going to get there early and make sure that the air conditioning is running myself.
