OMG COLD IN HERE!

I'm tired of people whinging about the heat. I mean seriously, it's sixty five degrees in here, or roughly 17.5 for those of you of a metric leaning. Good lord even the front office is 75 degrees and we got people up there bitching about the heat.

What the hell, I mean it. WHAT the HELL? It's the same temp inside that it always is, and yet people are OMG TOO HOT TO WORK... Only exception is the welding area, that's open-air so it's hotter than... well hotter than any number of amusing yet crude heat related metaphors.

Seriously though, those of you sitting in air-conditioned boxes please stop complaining.

65-70 degrees F is my comfort zone. I like to wear layers so this temperature range still allows for it. But I don't mind warmer temperatures. I can't stand the cold.

It's only like 82 in the house. It's definitely cooling down.

Isn't that like 60 degrees fahrenheit? That's like being in a freezer.

Put on a freaking sweater? At least you can just add layers. You want your coworkers who are too hot to start stripping off?

Sorry, I just can't stand people who bitch about the cold. Not hard to solve it compared to being too hot.

I am not bitching about it being cold. I am bitching about it being the exact same temp in here that it is every day... yet people are disfucntional because of the "heat." People who have been sitting in boxes all day without going outside. People who haven't left the confines of the quality lab.

Those people.

Re: OMG COLD IN HERE!

Um...since when is 65 hot!? Even when I was living in the Northeast, that was comfortable at highest unless it was the dead of winter.

I challenge anyone bitching about the heat to move in with me, down here in sunny Texas, for a week.

There are some climates that just aren't natural for humans I think

Them's fightin' words.

If living in Canada has made me realize one thing about myself, it's that I generally prefer the heat. I absolutely hate winter-time here. Right now it's 30 degrees Celsius out (86 Fahrenheit, for my American friends), and while that's perhaps a bit hotter than I'd like, it's okay. The real killer is the humidity, which is making the temperature feel more like 38 Celsius (a little over 100 Fahrenheit), but again, I'm not going to complain.

The thermostat in my apartment (which is in Fahrenheit, for some reason) reads about 80 degrees (26.6 Celsius), which is tolerable, as long as I've got my fan on (and remain in nothing more than my underwear, of course ).
