    Avoiding A/C - jobs

    A/C is definitely bad for me. It gives me a headache and clogs my sinuses. Its something poisonous and I'm going to avoid it. However, its a little hard to find jobs in the city not in air conditioned buildings. So I looking for suggestions. It doesn't matter what.

    Cheers

    That is so weird because the AC has been broken at my office for 2 days and it's making me sick! I get dizzy and light-headed in there, even with the industrial fans they have brought in... I'll take your AC off your hands anyday

    Well, if you can land one, there are lots of construction jobs outside. You could become a hot-dog vendor (or some such thing . . . oh! Maybe a primal type vendor!). If you were looking for a career, you could become a professional gardener, or landscaper--or you might find a job with one. If you're looking for a total life change, then maybe a veggi-farmer and organic cattle-rancher.

    But other than that, I'm out of ideas. It would be hard to find a basic job in the city, free of AC. Best of luck.

    I've been thinking about that. I moved to the city to avoid farming in the first place.

    @ Lodini: Perhaps its a lack of fresh air that is causing your problem, or else the place is just too damned hot. If you can, open the windows.

    I'm in and out of my car all day and it's usually 90+ degrees and 90+ humidity, so i have learned to appreciate my time in the A/C. As much as I love not working in an office, I could do without the days of dripping sweat for hours at a time. But if it is making you sick it is probably mold in the air ducts. That can be nasty stuff and your employer might want to think about having it cleaned.

    You could move to Germany and get a factory job.

    Hmm...cold is also on my list of things to avoid. Right now I live in Sydney and I am considering moving to a warmer climate. I think Germany may be a bit of step in the wrong direction.

    If only anyone ever used the A/C moderately. But it seems to always be turned on so low.

    I have to wear a sweat shirt in my office when it is 100 outside because apparently it is impossible to have the office feel moderately comfortable. I could keep grass fed beef at my desk and it probably would not spoil. Talk about a waste of money.
