I honestly really care about living on my own, truly. As a teenager I just hated all the rules my parents had all around the house on what I could or could not do. They were so strict about everything in my life at that point, however the worst was with the heating & air conditioning. The people I was with and I had a rather large several story house with hardwood floors. It either was always too boiling or always too cold in that house. There simply was never a middle of the ground temperature that was comfortable for just about everyone involved. So when warm season hit plus all of us were drenched in the humidity plus heat, all I ever really wanted to do was turn on the a/c, however my Dad had a lock on the control device that set the various temperatures to go on plus off at certain times. It bugged myself and others so much when our old house was frying love an oven! And when Winter came around it was just as terrible for the hardwood floors were bitter chilly plus no amount of heat that would turn on could warm to temperatures that were pleasing. I looked at the control device plus I couldn’t believe what temperature it was set to. I know that my parents were trying to conserve energy plus efficiency costs, however it seemed so deranged to me! Well, when I went ahead and finally moved out, that was the first thing I couldn’t wait to do, turn on the a/c when I was too boiling to whatever I wanted to cool down plus when I was chilly I would be really blissful in the heat that I would let run as long as I desired. The first week our heating bill arrived and of course I nearly cried at the expenses it was so high. I called my Dad that moment plus apologized for complaining about her control device rules plus thanked him for what he taught myself and others about heating plus cooling costs.
