I share office space with several coworkers.
There is one thermostat.

The thermostat was set to 68 because someone was too hot.
It was 35 degrees Fahrenheit this morning.

I rallied with other coworkers to fight to turn the heat on.

I understand people have different body types, but office temp should depend on the season, not how hot someone gets.

Thanks for letting us know what your office thermostat is set on.
A lot of us were wondering, but just too shy to ask you.

1500 watt heater under your desk.

Or just burn an old tire.

If the person that thinks it's too hot is an attractive female, just demand she remove more clothing. If it is a female whose looks would make you consider celibacy, then say " No problem, I'll just grab a coat and wear my thermal underwear tomorrow."

I hope this clears everything up for you. We all worry about your work life. If it gets to be too much for you, you might want to take a week off, then go back to the office and quit altogether.

Where I work we have one control room that has the same issue, and the folks that get too cold, use heaters under the control panels/desks. If it's that cold outside, I don't really see the need to run the A/C that is for sure. They also put a piece of cardboard over the vent to keep it from blowing on them. In reverse, some of the folks that are hot natured, get a small fan and use that to stay cool so they are not freezing their coworkers to death.

I work in a Govt. environment and when I was part of Operations it was amazing the issues that developed with temperature control, we operate with ASHRAE / Treasury Board Standards and 90% of employees never got it. Our electrician was mandated to cut any cords on portable heaters, they're a no no. Dressing according the weather and using common sense was often overlooked or ignored.

A few years back I get home and the AC is running and the wife has the fire place on, that's what I have to deal with :-)

Cheers,

A few years ago I saw the neighbors front door standing open on a 90 degree day. I came back by 15 minutes later and it was still open so I pulled in the driveway to see the daughter sunbathing on the front porch with a fan in the doorway. I never turned her in to Dad.

If 68 is comfortable in the summer, why isn’t it comfortable in the winter?

Dressing appropriately is using common sense. Today, common sense is out the window. Whining and who can complain the loudest is the norm.

Is that why you are justnum?
