OK hands up all you tropical softies who sleep in the air-con all night...
------ START RANT !!!!!!!! --------------
Lately I've been astounded by the number of people who can't live without air-con; winge every time they have to step outside; even sleep all night in a fridge, with the aircon on full blast - and then tell me they just like to snuggle under the doona!!!
Bluddy crazy if you ask me. These same folks will wonder why the electrickery bill is out of control!
Now - don't get me wrong - I use air-con sometimes - but sparingly. I never sleep with it at home. A ceiling or pedistal fan (using a tiny fraction of the elec.) is just fine thank you very much.
Of course I know some people genuinely need it - sick and elderly etc. and certainly during heat waves etc. But I'm talking about healthy young things who are just addicted to their home comforts.
SUMMER IN OZ is HOT HOT HOT - get used to it or go to NZ!
No-one seems to ask the question... What did grandma do without air-con???
ANS: she bluddy survived. she sweated, she worked and she probably lived longer than most of these modern softies will.
--------------END RANT (for now) -----------------
So what do you think .. HAVE WE ALL GONE SOFT ?
