It's generally pretty cold lately here in the plant where I work, mostly because of the construction going on. When there are giant holes in the walls you expect it to be fairly chilly.

The interface for the system that attempts to control the environment is in my workspace, so there are often guys who work for Carrier (the HVAC contractor in charge of that stuff) in the room fiddling with the systems.

One of my coworkers who was all bundled up in his hoodie sweatshirt asked a Carrier guy if he could turn up the heat. The Carrier guy explained that we were basically at the mercy of the outside temperature because of all the holes in the building. So my coworker asked if he could do anything about the outside temperature. The Carrier guy laughed and said his company was working on the problem.

As he stepped out the door he added, "should be ready by July."

Carrier guy should have told him they hadn't perfected global warming for this neighborhood yet,but they are working on it.

Referring to "global warming" when making a joke about cold weather is the hackest possible joke you can make.
