Well, that's not entirely accurate. The fans are still working very well—in fact they can't turn them off. But what's coming out is vaguely warm, so it's a good 80+ degrees and humid in this here office.

Everyone was given the option to work from home today. Except for me. Because I'm special like that.

As a matter of fact, I didn't even know the office would be completely empty today, because the office management e-mail went out at 8pm last night and I'm the only one who can't check my e-mail out of the office. Because I'm special like that.

Building management bought these piece of **** dinky fans to help the three of us who are here not have heart attacks today. Overnight, they bought hundreds of these fans. Literally hundreds. For people who aren't even here, who will never use them. And meanwhile they refused my request for a temporary Photoshop license.

I have plans for these fans.

Okay, I made that number up; it is true that I honestly don't know how hot it is.

But my forehead, armpits, feet and underwear know exactly how hot they think it is, and if you did, too you wouldn't be happy.

Worked in the lab for a couple of months one summer without A/C. At least we had windows that would open.

If you're investing so much money in fans why not buy a portable Air Conditioner https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/category/portable-air-conditioners/20201.aspx

The operating rooms at the university where I worked were built in 1941. They had windows that opened.

My God, it must be hot. Aqua's lost the ability to parse sentences correctly.
What do you mean "we", have you got a mouse in your pocket?
