I happen to labor for a cell phone company, but not in the way you might think. I can’t imagine being a single of those sales workers, or even worse toiling in the corporate office pushing papers around. I am actually out in the field, helping to set up modern cell towers… Sometimes the people I was with and I even do fine work for people who need it, which is why a crew of us went down to the storm-damaged islands to help restore the communication systems. The location got beat up rather badly, and having no toiling cell phones wasn’t helping things very much. The problem was so terrible our short trip ended up taking several weeks. All of us were sleeping in tents on the worksites, with no running water or a/c devices. It was challenging for a while. I know that not having A/C was a pretty low priority in comparison to the damage all around me. Still, it was harder and harder to get through the scorching hot afternoons knowing that there would be no cooling for us until the people I was with and I chose to go back to our home country. Then our company totally surprised us with a shipment of small, portable a/c devices, and a generator designed to power them. They were not all that much to look at, and honestly weak, but really fine enough for cooling off the inside of our tents. There were no air filters in them, so they didn’t help at all with air quality or humidity, but the people I was with and I didn’t care. Having a little A/C to look forward to at the end of a brutal day made all the difference to our morale, and helped us labor a great deal harder.
