Mom is that you?
I shout at the clouds, darn clouds.
I constantly telling my family members, shut the door I am not heating/cooling the entire outdoors. Next turn those lights off you are not using. With every one of these I hear my Dad saying them to me and my brothers and sister. If I find a dime, penny, any coinage on the ground I am picking it up and wiping it off to use or save. I make them save the Kroger plastic bags for garbage bags in small cans as I say why would I pay for trash bags twice! I guess the insurance commercials are right you become your parents...
We're in Arizona....WHAT clouds?
My wife is one of those who likes the whole floor lit up at night. The room she's in, the room she'll go back to, and the room she might go to next. And not one light, all the lights in each.
That said, she will turn them all off to sleep. And when she is not using a room.
My son turns on whatever light he needs, but never turns it off after. Ever. And while he will close the door, he never thinks to lock it, when he leaves or when he comes in. "Who's gonna come in?" Never lived in a city. He just has no idea.
"We no longer invite her to visit."
It's fixed, now. Easier than going on Dr. Phil.
You can thank me later.
My wife and kids are always "freezing". Every time they complain, I walk to the kitchen and close the storm door, which is usually open a half inch, and the kitchen door which is also usually open an inch. The storm door you do have to pull closed (old hinges) but why not at least just close the kitchen door.
Some folks were just born in a barn it seems...
Vestibules in restaurants should be mandatory.
Employees hated to go anywhere with me in the winter, I always have the truck window open a couple of inches, no matter the temp....fresh air does a body good.
Yesterday when I was shooting at Tuesday Night Steel my friend commented, “we only have six days without sunshine and we biased about those.”
Just means someone farted and fresh air is a critical necessity.
I left home and have been living on my own since I was 17 YO. No one had to teach me to keep the doors closed summer or winter or to turn off lights when the room was unoccupied, because I paid the bills!
One more factor is important about keeping the doors closed. Texas has Skeeters and if you invite them inside your house, they'll stay hidden and feast on you during the night! Our Texas County has a very effective Skeeter spraying program, but the spraying is done only during peak months.
We had some wonderfully warm days, last week, so I spent time wearing shorts outside with Jake in our big "Out Front" yard. Those blood sucking bxstards, got me three times in the arms and legs and I have dime sized bruises to prove it. I got trashed in JANUARY when it was least expected!
So.... keep your Texas doors closed, or you'll become a Skeeter Golden Corral!
"Boy!!!!!!!! SHUT the dad-burned door!!!!!!! You're lettin' in cold air, and I'm not tryin' to heat the outside!!!!!!!"
Yep, grew up with "shut the door!" "shut the window!" and "don't touch the thermostat, put a sweater on if you are cold!". NO heat on in bedrooms!! That is what down comforters are for! Use two if you need to.
Actually, I sleep better with the bedroom window opened a bit for the fresh air.
Refrig - I finally taught my kids -- "You know about where everything is in the frig... before opening it, think of what you want, and where it is. Open the frig, get want you want, and close it".
Oh, also with shut the door... make sure it is fully closed. I always told the kids to push on it - with the weather stripping, sometimes it wouldn't close completely without a push in the winter.
I was thinking the exact same thing the other day. I had just come in from yelling at the kids to get off my lawn and was still barefoot from my walk to work...
unfortunately, stupid has no cure.
Wait. The proper procedure for running a wood stove isn't to make the house unbearably hot until you open a window? No wonder my ex-wife doubted my thermal-management skills...
