I have been living with my good friend, Jimmy, for a couple of years now.
We have about three months left on our lease and I am thinking about moving in with my girlfriend after the lease is up. I haven’t told Jimmy about it yet because I am scared he will not react well to the news. Jimmy has also been out of the country for the last few weeks on vacation so i wanted to wait until I could tell him in person. While Jimmy has been gone I have also been renting out his room in the house and I have been staying with my girlfriend. The new person that is renting Jimmy’s room has been blasting the air conditioner and I didn’t realize it until I got our energy bill. I guess the new guy likes to have the air conditioner on even when he is not home so that the house stays cool. I feel like keeping the air conditioner on is the biggest waste of money. I know that Jimmy would feel the same way about the air conditioning, but I didn’t want to tell him about how much extra the bill was this month. I am going to have to talk to the new guy about not using the air conditioner all the time, but I don’t want him to get upset about it. I think that using the air conditioner like that is really bad for the environment. I hope that after I talk to him about using the air conditioner that he will turn up the thermostat a little bit, hopefully his air conditioner use isn’t doing permanent damage to our HVAC system.
