I FINALLY have an update for you guys in regards to my proposition to my boss. If this is the first time you’ve tuned in to my blog, in my last blog post I spoke about my plan to request that my boss make the transition from nuclear energy to solar energy. My boss is a bit stuck in his ways and doesn’t seem to care too much about the planet, so I knew it was going to be a hard task. He also doesn’t like spending money, so that was working against me too.
When I proposed the idea of installing commercial solar systems in our workplace, I had to make sure he was in a good mood. I tried to approach him on three occasions before I finally asked. Each time I started uttering the words, he would go off in a grunt and wouldn’t even listen to what I had to say. I finally got him when he was eating a delicious sandwich for lunch.
He was mid-bite when I got the sentence out, and I swear he almost choked. He couldn’t respond because he was chewing his food. This forced him to actually think about his response before he gave it to me, which was actually really good. He said he would like to hear more about what I had to say about the NSW energy saving scheme that I had mentioned. He wanted to know how it would help the business. I jumped at the opportunity to tell him.
I won’t go into every detail of our conversation, but I will tell you this – my conversation with my boss was a success! I’m as shocked as you guys are, I really didn’t think he would go for it, at least not this quickly. I guess he could see the benefits that solar energy has for his business. It would be a dumb move not to install solar panels when that’s what consumers are expecting.
