disgruntled medium at best

much to the chagrin of facility managers worldwide, i strongly opine that every office should have THEIR OWN THERMOSTAT.

it's invariably either freezing or stuffy... no happy medium.

Having a thermostat does not bring about a happy medium. I work in a modular trailer and even when I can set it for what I want, there's still a full 5 degree spread. I set it for 70, and it will crank the heat up to 75 degrees before shutting off. Then of course I share my office with a woman who is nearly always running warmer than average. I run colder than average.

So I feel your pain, mdog.

I would give anything for stuffy. It's always freezing in my office, such that in the summer I have to wear long sleeves. I actually keep two blankets at my desk.

I actually thought about writing something similar on my own blog this week. Go figure. I don't understand people who grew up with air conditioning. The office where I work is 68 in the summer and 74 in the winter. And people don't seem to understand why this is strange. (What happened to dressing for the weather?) So layers it is... more to put on in the summer and those I can shed in the winter.

get a fan and space heater. open a window. get a lap blanket or lap dog. calisthenics. walk around naked- that will stir things up.

fan: check. space heater: check. window: n/a.

i'm thinking my officemate would not appreciate the last suggestion...
