Thermostat Problem
[Return to Topics]

I want to be happy    Posted 07-08-2004 at 07:32:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
My wife says, "Honey it is freezing in here"

I told her,"It is not below 70, it cant be freezing"

"I dont care what it says, hugging her arms against her chest, I am freezing! Fix the thermostat!"

So I go to the thermostat and hold my hand over it, but do not change it.

Five minutes later she is smiling and and says, "Honey thanks it is so nice and warm in here now".
I wanted to tell her I did not touch it but I dont want to be right;
I just want to be happy.

So 20 minutes later in bed as she throws the covers off; she says "I dont know what YOU did to that darn thermostat but it is hot as Hades in here!! There must be something wrong with that thermostat, you need to fix it or replace it!! I cant stand this!!"

As I lay in bed whith her covers and mine on me, I want to yell "There is nothing wrong with that thermostat! It is YOUR thermostat that needs fixing!" However, I bite my tongue and dont say anything; after all I dont want to be right, I want to be HAPPY.

Got to having that problem all the time around the house about 3 years ago. Took the wife to the hospital and had her spayed. Doctor also took out the thermostat, or at least the sending unit. Came home a different woman. She advises anyone that ask her about it to have it done.

Suzn sez - oh don't mind me, i'm just having another "personal summer" :)
When we had the motel we encountered a wide range of sleeping habits - people seem to like it between 60-78 degrees and there's no predicting them so just roll in an oil-filled electric portable "booster". Then in summer they'd turn the a/c on fullblast and leave the front door open. Like missing towels, it all becomes of the fee.

Gal named Esther used to book late but reliably for midsummer and for some reason she liked our towels - so for years her room cost $8 more than the next one. She never noticed. Always glad to see her - but there never was a free lunch. :)

just imagine being an air conditioning maintenance person for an office area that has a dozen of the fairer gender. can't make anyone happy.

my wife wants the house 70 in the summer and 78 in the winter. i could save a bunch of money if she wanted it the other way around. its kinda tough to work in 90 degree, 88% Rh to come home to a 70 degree 68% rh home. i guess we have to disagree about something.

Power surges.... BTDT no fun.

Marriage- Spending the rest of your life sleeping in a bed that's too cold next to someone who's sleeping in a bed that's too hot.
