Enchantra Posted January 19, 2005 Share Posted January 19, 2005 OK, Everyone already knows I work in a stockroom, a cold and barely heated one at that during the winter. So, aside from wearing layers of clothing what can I do to keep warm? I especially need to keep my hands warm yet have my fingers available to hit the keys on the scanning gun. I've tried cutting the fingers off a pair of gardening gloves and that worked a little bit except the gloves came apart rather fast. I have odd sized hands and often when I buy gloves I have to buy men's gloves because my hands are very wide. So, anyone know of some nice gloves that fit within my limited budget that I can obtain? On another note, any suggestions for keeping my legs from getting cold? The stockroom right now is hovering in the upper 40's, but it gets colder when I have to have the outside doors open for prolonged periods for deliveries. I've seen it in previous years where it was so cold in the stockroom that water spilled on the floor near the sink actually started to form ice. Yes there is a furnace in the stockroom, but the darned thing is in the ceiling, and the way they installed it when they built the building, all you have to do is open the dock door and it blows all the hot air right outside and not into the stockroom. Otherwise as we all know hot air rises which means the upper part of the stockroom is much warmer, but alas my boss will not let me try to move my desk and everything upstairs from the main area of the stockroom. Instead everyone who enters it complains how cold it is. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
