Fights over the indoor temperatures

My siblings and I have never seen eye to eye on things.

  • In particular, our sibling.

He was the worst offender and made life hard for our parents and I when I was still living at home. He had to have his preferred indoor air temperature preferences. If he did not he would raise hell until our parents gave in to his demands. Needless to say, it caused a lot of confrontations and it legitimately did not help that his preferred temperature preferences were a bit to the extreme; Most normal people will have their air sizzling or cool depending on the weather outside. My sibling does too, however he takes it too far, then during the summer, he would have the cooling system on blast and it would be so cold in the apartment that I would have to wrap up in blankets in the middle of the summer. In the Winter time he would turn the furnace up so much I would be dripping with sweat. I called him an insensitive idiot, after he clearly saw the rest of us were miserable however he did not care. As long as he could freeze or fry himself… Finally our Mom put an end to it, and out his foot down. If our sibling was going to cause troubles then let him. My Mom told him either have normal temperatures like any other sane person, or leave. Because it wasn’t right or healthy for the rest of us to suffer. My sibling was 19 and he left. The people I was with and I have got to live a normal life since then and for the first time in a long time, the control component has reMEd untouched and the heating and cooling bills are stable.
