My BMI is currently at a new low of 18 (normal is 20 to 25), which means I don't have much fat padding my arms anymore. (Must be all that damn fast food, eh?) It's not such a bad thing with summer approaching, but it means I am always freezing.
I came into a meeting this morning and I noticed the A/C was on. I was wearing a sweater (I always wear a sweater), but the sleeves were only 3/4 length, and my arms below that point where covered in goosebumps. I was really freezing, teeth chattering, hugging chest for warmth... you get the idea. Finally, I couldn't stand it anymore, so I went over and shut the A/C off. I still was cold, but not painfully so.
About five minutes later, a social worker came in and said, "Oh my god, this room is like an oven." She then cranked up the A/C again to full power.
It seems odd to me that one person could say a room is like an oven while I could be shivering and covered in goosebumps. The social worker says I'll get it when I go into menopause.
In that situation, who should get preference? I say the cold person should! It's more painful to be cold than hot, in my opinion.
