I tried many times to talk about the importance of my indoor comfort, but she never seemed to meet my expectations when it came to setting the thermostat.
When people ask me what happened in my last relationship, I’m not sure what to tell them. I want to believe that it was a mutual problem which created the final destruction of my partnership, but if I’m being totally honest…. I also have to acknowledge that I was absolutely not my best self when I was in that particular residential setup. To be honest, I thought that I was doing a lot outside of the house and my lady should worry more about the happenings in our apartment. Unfortunately, this led to a lot of issues with the heating, cooling, and air quality control equipment that we were operating… not to mention our regards for one another. You see, when I entered the house each day I was stressed out by the temperature setting that met me at the door. The indoor air was never comfortable for my temperature preferences, and I didn’t know why my partner kept changing the thermostat to be so unruly. I tried many times to talk about the importance of my indoor comfort, but she never seemed to meet my expectations when it came to setting the thermostat. There was always some counter argument, like the HVAC system hadn’t been inspected in several years – so how could I be upset about the uneven temps that we experienced? Overall, we found ourselves in a mutually losing situation when it came to the furnace and air conditioning system. In the end, I called the heating and cooling company down the road for an emergency repair service, hoping that would save my relationship… but it was too late. I just wasn’t willing to take on the HVAC duties, and my partner wasn’t willing to be persecuted for them.
