I shared a thermostat with another apartment.

When I moved into our apartment, I didn’t go looking for a thermostat.

  • It was Wintertide and comfortable in the apartment, so I didn’t give any thought to where the thermostat was.

I thought that if I ever had a problem with the Heating & Air Conditioning system, I could call the maintenance lady. When it started warming up through the afternoon, I would come apartment and it would too warm for our comfort, but I still didn’t say anything. It wasn’t until it got warm and I wanted the air conditioning on, that I realized I didn’t have a thermostat. I called the maintenance girl and asked hiim where the thermostat was. I could know the heat on when I got apartment from work, and it was almost eighty-five in the apartment. I wanted to turn the thermostat down and save energy, while keeping it cooler in the apartment. She told me I shared a thermostat with another apartment, and it was in their apartment. I thought she was kidding, and told him I genuinely needed it to be cooler in our apartment. She said that if I had a problem with the temperature I needed to talk to the other people. She gave me their home number and said to knock loud because they were seasoned and going deaf. I could not recognize I needed to share a thermostat, or that I was subjected to their preference. I had two weeks left to our lease, and immediately put in our sixty afternoon notice that I would be leaving when our lease was up.
