I’m sorry if this post describes you. If it does, I’m sure your co-workers don’t mind you doing this at all and I’m just a whiny bitch.
I work in a fairly small corner of the building. There’s only four of us girls back here, and, lucky us, we have our own thermostat! I’m pretty sure holy wars have been fought over what temperature an office should be.
I would like to point out one strange thing that I’ve noticed: the people who keep the thermostat at FIFTY BELOW FREEZING wear…long sleeve shirts. And probably thermal underwear, though I haven’t checked. Me? I’m bundled up with my sweater, space heater, pants, and extra thick socks. Now, if the “hot” people wore short sleeved shirts, a skirt, and/or sandals, I would give credence to their assertion it’s hot in our area. But when they’re bundled up and I’m bundled up, I can’t help but wonder who’s making more of an effort here.
Oh, and the temperature inside DOES NOT NEED TO BE INDIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL to the temperature outside. If it’s 90 degrees outside, it can still be 70 degrees inside. We don’t need to turn the thermostat down to 65 degrees.
Anybody else have thermostat issues at work?
