I don’t associate with my family a lot.
- I don’t mean that I don’t call them and chit chat here and there.
I love my family, but I need to have space from them. That is the reason I move several hundred miles away. They just don’t understand my need for privacy. Every year, we try to get together for a week and every year, I wish I had gone to their house instead of inviting them to mine. They always marvel at my sophisticated HVAC system. They love playing with my Smart Thermostat. I try to tell dad that he doesn’t need to change the temperature on the thermostat. I explained to him that once I set my ideal temperature, the thermostat will adjust the temperature so that it is able to overcome the weather outside. They just don’t understand this and every time I turn around someone is playing with the thermostat. I know this makes them sound like they are a bunch of lunatics and they really aren’t. They are just a bunch of touchy people. When they see new technology, they feel they need to play with it. It has been driving me crazy since I was a kid. I know that I did some playing when I first moved into my Smart home. The Smart Thermostat and all of IoT items, had me fascinated, but I never broke any of it. As soon as they go home, I will need to call the HVAC company and have them come out and reprogram my Smart Thermostat. I know they have it totally out of whack.
