Last Saturday, my wife and I were in charge of the errands together. Usually we tackle the list separately, but I had not seen my wife much through the week. She had been racking up an immense amount of overtime, while her sergeant was on vacation. The twelve hour shifts were getting to both of us, and we needed to relax. We started our morning of errands at the cabinet center. We were looking for new wood cabinets for the kitchen. While we were there, the staff was giving a presentation of the new smart thermostat. It had a brand name, but I don’t remember it. Anyone who watched the smart thermostat presentation was going to receive a coupons towards a later purchase. My wife and I didn’t need a new thermostat, but the coupon could help get our cabinets later. We sat down on the bench, and waited for the presentation to begin. The staff really di anice job on presenting the important information. The smart thermostat was a game changer, because it had so many features. Many days, my wife and I leave the house HVAC unit running all day. Even though it’s expensive, we don’t want the kids to come home to an uncomfortable atmosphere. With this revolutionary new smart thermostat, we could adjust the indoor temperature levels from home, work, or on the go. We almost bought one, but we knew that a thermostat was not on the shopping list. It’s important not to get sidetracked by shiny new things, especially when you are on a mission.
