At work I have zero control over my environment, and so I tend to overcompensate for that when I get home at night.
- Yes I am a control freak, but if a person can’t be a control freak in their own home, is this even America? I always keep my mouth shut and my mind on business when I am in the office, even when it is too hot, too cold, or smells bad thanks to less than hygienic coworkers.
After putting up with that for 8 to 9 hours a day, when I come home I want to have everything just how I like it. Since I have a smart thermostat app on my phone now I can reach out to my house on the commute back and crank down the A/C/ This way the cooling is on full blast and washes over me when I walk through the front door. I actually don’t like to blast the AC that long, because it gives me a shiver, but I like it to be super cold when I first get home. That is the beauty of being in charge of your own climate control system, isn’t it? I can change the temperature settings as often as I want, and not have to answer to anyone about how comfortable they are. Even when I have guests over I tend to be rather selfish and set the climate control system however I happen to want it at the time. A woman’s home is her castle, and the cooling is whatever she wants it to be.
