My kids drive me absolutely crazy sometimes. I know, I know, everyone has kids who drive them crazy at times. But mine are being ridiculous lately. They want to just do whatever they feel like doing and forget all about their chores. Plus, on top of that, they seem to think that they can just mess with the thermostat whenever they feel like it. Now, I do not allow anyone to mess with the thermostat in our house. That’s because we have a digital programmable thermostat and it took me a long time to get the heating and cooling system programmed just the way that I wanted it. Whenever the kids mess with it, they always mess up the heating and the house is never warm enough when I wake up in the morning. I hate it when I get up in the morning and the house is cold! I also hate it in the afternoons when the temperature outside is warming up and the heating is still running! I hate wasting money on heating and air conditioning when it isn’t completely necessary. And if left up to their own devices, the kids would leave the A/C running full blast all summer long, and then they would leave the heating running full blast during the winter. I can’t stand it when they mess around with the thermostat, and they know that it drives me nuts. I’m sick and tired of telling them to stop turning the heating and the air conditioning up and down without permission. As a matter of fact, I’m going to start taking cuts of their allowances if they keep touching the thermostat!
