I don't think I could work in an office unless I could get out into the fresh air several times each day!As a sign writer,I was able to work both outdoors and indoors depending on the job I was doing at the time.This suited me just fine.
For me, this is more a question of would I rather do office work or outdoor work - if I could do office work outdoors on a sunny day, then I would love to but it's hard to see a computer screen properly outside I find..... and obviously my papers and other bits and bobs would be soaked if I was outside in the rain!
If I had any desire to do a job like farming or gardening or forest ranger then the location of my work would be decided for me.
I think I may have the perfect job where I can work a combination of both. I would spend about 3/4 of my time working inside (be it from an office or from home) with 1/4 on location filming. I don't mind the scorching heat but it can be tedious when it rains. Then again, if it's raining, we can't shoot anyway as we would defer to a wet weather contingency and reschedule filming. So for me, its best of both worlds. If I had to get a "normal job" and commit to one or the other, I think I would be hard pressed to be able to decide as I love having the flexibility of working inside and outside.
as a person with an outside job (junk mail deliverer) I'd prefer an inside job. I've only just managed to start my next job round this weekend due to a week of cold weather and rain. Because it's casual work, if I don't do it due to the weather, I don't get paid.
I assume gardeners and other outdoor workers are similarly affected, though I do see the postie braving it through heat and cold.
The last job I was in was outdoors . On the wet days we worked in the shed doing cleaning up , organizing , fixing up things, On the very hot days we chose to work very early , and in the shade as much as possible . Loved my outdoor job as a Gardner.
I would rather work inside. I often see men working outside in the heat in February etc. and I wonder how they cope with the heat and I feel very (very, very) sorry for them. I know there are SOME companies that do cut off work when the temperature rises but THEIR top temperature and mine really really are miles apart. I particularly feel sorry for say, road workers, because the thought of the heat, laying bitumen, that stinking tar smell, being near steel railway tracks or tram tracks and the sun beating down makes me feel sick. I figure if I have to be careful opening the car door because the door handle is burring, this workers must be suffering. Guess they have to be careful with complaining though, because they could be labelled bludgers very quickly…….in this country.
