When everyone was gone, my dad put the temperature back up to her usual 85 degrees
If you have an older relative, you know that the older they get, the colder they are no matter the temperature outside. My granny has been living on her own for many years. As the years go by, her house seems to get warmer and warmer. She refuses to wear more clothing when the seasons change, and enjoys keeping her house hot. This is not an issue for her, but when she has visitors someone always has something to say! My dad will visit her often and bothers her about the thermostat. She gets angry when someone comments on how warm the house is. She says that it is her house, and she can keep it whatever temperature she wants. One year, we decided to bring the entire family over on Christmas day so that she didn’t have to leave the house. When we got there, the internal temperature of the house was in the 90’s! My dad turned the thermostat down to an appropriate temperature and did not tell her. She did not realize that the thermostat had been adjusted with so many people inside to house. When everyone was gone, my dad put the temperature back up to her usual 85 degrees. She called us later that day to tell us how happy she was that everyone came over to visit on Christmas day. Granny will always keep her house warm and that is just something that her visitors needs to be aware of when they get there!
