I was home sick on Friday. I woke up. I couldn't breathe. My lungs were heavy. I had no voice. I knew what it was.
They burn things called "scenties" at work. It's a little "pot" of scented wax that melts over a light bulb - no flames.
They've been using them at work all week long. The first few days, I had heartburn and didn't feel well, but it went away as soon as I left the office. Since I'm only there for training, I figured what the heck, I'll stick it out.
Well, Friday I was mad. I can't run if I can't breathe. It took all weekend for my lungs to completely clear up. I was finally feeling almost normal yesterday afternoon.
10 minutes in this morning, my voice was gone again. I got mad and walked out. I got ahold of my boss and told him I was sorry, but I couldn't do this. No job is worth my health.
My boss got back to me. He wants to send me out to the other branch where I'm supposed to be working sooner than expected. So I might not have lost my job after all. I guess time will tell. Especialy since I don't have the proper training yet...
