Complain about Your Job Thread.

I had HEAT STROKE at work.

Had all the symptoms except going into a command diarrhea.. Although.. I felt like I was going to piss shit and vomit all at the same time.. I kept working. My upper brow swelled like a gorilla and my hands like sausages..

No amount of water helped.

It was like being an ant under a magnifying glass.

I wish the sun would die.

Even my feet wanted to vomit.. Although I didn't puke.

I thought I was dying.

I was dumb to keep working.

I have to work tomorrow and it's going to be hotter.

Though somewhat antiquated, the notions of bourgeoisie vs proletariat is still of great value to consider in different aspects of life.

In this instance, your presumably work for a private, non-unionized business. Your resolve to keep working is admirable and hints at virtue, however, your right, it was stupid to keep working. We live in a glorious advanced democracy where your health is more important than your employers results from employees.

Heat stroke is a serious issue, and you have every right to take measures to avoid, or deal with health problems despite losses to your employer and s/he has no right to penalize you in any way for it.

It is righteous and admirable to exercise your rights in this situation. Be a strong member of the proletariat. Take pride in that too. It is your right and no employer is above that. Put your health first and do so without shame.

There should be documentation available to you/your coworkers on how best to deal with heat stroke. I don't think that part is the law, but its incredibly valuable to have.

Oh and fuck seriously its supposed to be hotter tomorrow?! I thought tuesday was supposed to be the peak and then today was even worse.

You had the classic symptoms of heat exhaustion. You need to stay hydrated, wear a wide brimmed hat, and keep a cold wet cloth on your neck. I'd advise bringing a cooler with ice and cold drinks. If you start experiencing these symptoms again, remove yourself to a cool place for awhile. If heat exhaustion is isn't dealt with, you can end up with heat stroke, and then you're going to the hospital.

If you're sweating that much, you need to replace the electrolytes you're losing. Drinking a lot of water at that point will actually make things worse. Drink gatorade, pedialyte, or something like that in addition to water.

I had it once, topping tobacco fields in the summer, it totally sucks. I had a bad headache, chills, nausea... It will make it easier for you to get it again for awhile, so be careful...

Turm. I experienced that yesterday as well, and since have been contemplating whether or not I should have continued to "suck it up" and work. In Ontario it is your right to refuse unsafe working conditions, and I believe that extreme heat qualifies under that.

If you're concerned about your employer or their interests, consider: Would they benefit if you became so ill that you had to call in the next couple days off? Doesn't make much sense.

I work part-time at a pizzeria (I've already put in my resignation for the first week of August) without air conditioning and two smoldering ovens + kitchen, which made the temperature in there yesterday roughly 40 (c) or 104 (f). In addition to the extreme heat, the street the restaurant is on the main street in a Portuguese/Italian neighbourhood, and because Portugal won the Euro Cup semi-final game that street was packed with a celebratory parade from 4:30pm until 11 pm. That meant 7 hours of honking, screaming, noise horns, smoke bombs, whistles, mobs, drunkards, and fights. My restaurant was packed and I was the only server working. All night I fought of the urge to vomit, and about 5 times I had to step outside and sit with my head between my legs. I came home with a migraine and did become sick to my stomach several times afterward, unable to move for a few hours.

This is not cool! And I realized that I was simply too worried to mention anything to my boss at the time. In hindsight, I resolve to speak up when I experience such distress at work, as it is not feasible to expect someone to work well under unhealthy conditions. It certainly doesn't lead to quality work.

Perhaps next time you could speak to your employer about receiving a break every so often when it gets hot. I understand that not all employers are understanding, which is what can make it so difficult, but remember that you also have rights and immense value as an employee.

Sending you lots of love, Turm. I completely understand.

Thanks guys.

I totally took it way easier the last couple of days.

Drank lots of fluids and didn't push as hard.

I drank lots the day I got heat stroke but didn't sweat at all.
At least 5 litres.

It's my egos fault.
Everyone is chillin and I'm working hard because I want to get the job done.. Getting pissed because they aren't working as hard as me but really.. It was fucking hot out and I almost Cooke from the inside out lol

Duh

Lesson learned.

I need to chill
Literally

My landscaping, Sister. You can by tubs of powdered Gatorade for cheap, in the drink aisle of the market. I swear by the stuff. A big hat, sun glasses, cool cloths and breaks. We've been pushing mid 90s and triple digit real feels.... tomorrow will be 107F! Don't let yourself stop sweating. And keep a cool head!

Would rather be fishing

I edit old sports shows and post them. Stay in my cave all day. 890 more to go.

This is the one I did today from the mid 70's. Love the guys hair. Enzo and Big Cass say "You can't teach that:.

It can always be worse. Belize had humidity today of 108 per cent. WTF.

Carlsbad NM was 116 degrees and I would not like work in the oil fields.

I am however sorry for you because I get to work in air conditioned studio
