My office can top that one. Last week, we got these happy green signs in the elevator lobby suggesting that people should hold doors for their cow-orkers to fit more people onto each elevator and save energy.Like we don't do that already and needed a sign.All the while, one of the elevators was broken in such a way that it ran down to P3 and up to 3 on a continuous loop nonstop all by itself for 4 days straight before someone came out to fix it.
As I observed somewhere else today, the zombies will get us long before the melting glaciers, so don't fret.
My office celebrated with air conditioning today too! It was great...so cold I had wore my gym socks to keep my feet warm and kept a promotional t-shirt on my lap like a blanket.
That's classic.How are you liking Bel Canto? I finished it last year...struggled *a lot* to get into it (put it down for a year I think) but when I picked it back up I really liked it and wondered what the hell my problem was. Anyway, I hope you're enjoying it :)
That is something that I hate in the summer. You get up, dress for 85 degree weather, and then walk into a 65 degree office. There is no reason we need to be that cold, ever. I'm starting the 73 degree revolution today!
My apartment neighbors do that. Rather than just open a couple windows to cool off, they let the AC kick on.Most people just don't get it.
Oy. That is all.
That's ridiculous. Open a window, for Earth's sake!
It's been well into the 80s here, and I still haven't kicked on my home a/c. The work a/c I've used a bit...but it's programmed so that when we leave the temp bumps back up automatically. And actually, we have 3 or 4 different thermostats here, small though we are. Which is a blessing, since the super-skinny co-worker who wears shorts and flip-flops and sits over a space heater all summer is on a different thermostat than me. I can't even stand near her desk some days.
Steve--Well, that makes sense...Aaron--Oh, well thanks. That IS much less worrisome...Pants--I'm tempted to bring a blanket in, actually. That'd probably be a better plan than a space heater.Sognatrice--I'm not very far into it yet, but it came to me with good recommendations, so I'm hoping it doesn't disappoint! We shall see.Noelle--Word. I'll join the revolution with you. Mickey and Courtney--I know! And in my building, we actually even HAVE windows! (Ones that open and everything!) I know that's not the case in a lot of offices, but in ours, it is. No need for AC yet!!Lara--Word. That is all.Liz--My home ACs are still in the basement. I won't be needing those units for quite some time yet.
I don't even LIKE air conditioning. But today it is supposed to be 80 in NYC and my building still has the heat on.
