I regularly thought that having control over the control unit at our office would be lovely.
- For years I worked just prefer every other employee in a shared space who complained about the temperature.
The temperature was horribly inconsistent as well as uncomfortable as well as everyone around me complained about it. I sent countless SMSs to those in management as well as even a few complaints to the repair guy about the temperature before someone snapped as well as deemed it our responsibility to manage the control unit settings. I thought this was a major win because everyone wanted to be in control of the temperature as well as now I had the power to make it whatever I wanted. This victory was short lived though because as soon as the responsibility was relinquished to me, I was bombarded by complaints from everyone else. No matter what I did, someone was regularly unhappy about the temperature of the office. I suddenly realized that I’d never be able to please everyone despite our best efforts as well as that I’d need to set the temperature as well as leave it. In our mind, it was easier to become warmer than it was to become cooler, so I set the temperature to a low 82 degrees as well as left it at that. I sent an SMS to everyone letting them believe about our decision to keep the temperature consistent as well as that they’d have to system accordingly for their time at the office. If people were too cold, they could wear more layers. If people were too warm, they’d have to wear less layers. It’s tplot when they say you can’t please everyone.
