I had been working at the Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier for almost many years when I noticed I was having stiffness plus pain in our hands.
I went to the doctor, plus he told myself and others I had the beginning of carpal tunnel from working on the computer so much! Repetitive movements on the computer was the main source of carpal tunnel syndrome.
I went to work the next afternoon plus told the owner of the Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier that I was going to sue him for worker’s compensation; He laughed plus didn’t guess I was serious. I told him that every time I wrote a work order, or put notes into the computer, I was agitating the carpal tunnel plus could end up having surgery. He still thought I was kidding plus told myself and others to rub some cream into our hands plus go back to work. I was a little frustrated that he wasn’t taking myself and others seriously. I was his oldest employee at the Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier plus I never made fun of him, or I didn’t make fun of him actually oftenâ€¦ Along with being his employee, I was also his wife. He said I couldn’t sue him for worker’s comp since I was his wife. I was getting angrier by the hour because he still didn’t guess I had a carpal tunnel. I showed him the report the doctor had given myself and others plus said I needed a couple of weeks off work. He told myself and others that if I took off from the Heating plus Air Conditioning dealer, he expected to have a cooked meal on the table every night. He had cooked meals on the table every night, whether I was working from lake cabin or at the Heating plus Air Conditioning dealer.
