If there’s one thing that brings me big joy in life, it’s messing with my mom, but she’s such a high strung and hilarious woman that I just can’t help myself. It’s too much fun to get her all riled up and see what happens after that. To be fair, it’s not just me – my older siblings also get a real kick out of tormenting my mother on a regular basis. That’s why all of us pooled our currency together and bought her a whole new Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system last year! Her ancient heating and cooling system had actually been going downhill for a number of years, and my Dad was too cheap to update her ancient furnace or AC unit. That’s when all of us got together and decided it was time to have the air temperature control system substituted once and for all. The two of us knew all of us needed to get her an energy star rated furnace and brand new AC component so that her condo could be effectively and efficiently heated and cooled for the first time in a decade. The thing is, as all of us discussed updating her Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system, all of us also decided to substitute the thermostat. The two of us decided to put in a smart thermostat rather than the same ancient digital air temperature control unit. And all of us decide not to tell her. After the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C workers left and all of us were left to our own devices, all of us programmed the thermostat so all of us could make modifications from our cell Phones. The two of us did not tell my mother about these remote thermostat applications… and that’s how all of us wanted it, but now, whenever all of us recognize enjoy adding a little spice to life, all of us just change the air temperature control settings and wait for my Dad to notice.
