She obviously didn’t get the hint that we thought that it was way too hot in the house
We went over to my cousins’ house for dinner the other night but we didn’t have a very good time. It wasn’t that the food or the company was bad. It was the fact that they had the thermostat settings cranked up so high that I could hardly stand to be in their dining room. I don’t know why in the world they thought that they needed to have the heating set that high. It wasn’t even that cold outside yet, but I guess they were concerned that we were all going to be too chilly inside and they wanted us to feel cozy in their house. However, it ended up backfiring on them because it didn’t feel cozy in there at all. Instead, it felt like you were sitting inside of an actual furnace or something. We were miserable there and we could barely get through dinner. We were already sweating, and my husband kept whispering to me about leaving. I told him that we couldn’t possibly leave before dessert because that would just be rude. But at that point, he was red faced and had sweat dripping down his face. I asked my cousin if there was something wrong with their furnace and she told me that they had just had it serviced so it was working great. She obviously didn’t get the hint that we thought that it was way too hot in the house. At one point I thought about sneaking over to the thermostat in the hallway and turning the temperature down myself, but I remembered that she said they put in a new thermostat with a passcode on it. It was a really long night.
