Re: OT: to my friends

> idiots here at work who like to run the air conditioner in December.

Well, Pam, you just described me, sort of.  Our weather in neIN fluctuates
and althought today's high will only be the high 20s with no sun, a week or
so ago it was low 50s and very sunny.  When it is sunny and 50s our building
where I work absorbs that heat and the thermostat showed 78 degrees in the
front office where the only windows are.  My office is in the center of the
building, no windows and I have 3 track lights bearing down on me with a hot
computer next to me, which all yields a temperature of about 82 degrees in
my office with no air circulation in the afternoon after lunch.

About 3pm I went to the front office and switched the air on for a few
minutes.   As I walked away, the secretary got up and turned it back to
heat - which I knew she would, but didn't expect it that quickly.  So I
turned back and switched it again.  She started yelling that  the heat
hadn't been running most of the day and I told her I had to have just a
little air circulation, just 5 minutes, please.  She relented sullenly.  I
did turn it off after 5 minutes.  If the boss wants to pay me to sleep,
fine, cuz that's all he'll get from me in an 80+ degree office with no air
