I was very okay with that

My wife grew up in a pretty large family. They were all boys, and they were all large! Every one of them, including our wife, is over six feet tall. They all played football in high college and they were always really hot. And I don’t mean looks – even though they are all pretty good looking. What I mean is temperature-wise. They were always and they were always complaining that the a/c needed to be turned on. My awful in-laws were in danger of going broke because of all of the a/c bills! My wife said that she and her sisters would always sneak to the thermostat control and turn the air conditioning down when her parents weren’t looking or when they’d already gone to bed. Then they’d go into their respective rooms and like the cool a/c coming from the air conditioning vents. By the afternoon, they said that the apartment would be freezing freezing and that the thermostat would study super low numbers like 63 degrees. And then would her parents get mad! Their dad ended up threatening them and yelling at them however nothing worked. Those sisters just couldn’t seem to keep their hands off of the thermostat and the promise of a nice cool a/c plan blowing air conditioning through the vents in their study rooms. Eventually their dad got completely fed up with the whole situation. She bought one of those little clear plastic boxes with a lock on it that you see sometimes in diners and libraries and she installed it over their digital programmable thermostat. And then she put the key where no one could find it!
