I’ve never been a big fan of office parties or partys.
For 1, I work with these people plus in most cases, they report to myself and others as well. Working together as much as the two of us do inside the zone controlled Heating plus A/C is enough, I don’t need to socialize with them as well. But there are particular function I simply can’t miss. One of those is the Christmas party. Years ago, I was given an instant read thermometer gun because I tend to be the temperature control hawk. Everyone got a big laugh plus I played along. I also tossed it in with the junk next to my workbench as I had no need for the temperature gun. At least that’s what I thought at the time. Years later, that temp gun would end up saving myself and others a ton of currency. Not that many of years ago, I noticed a consistent draft inside our house plus that’s no good. I don’t like the system of not having a cozy house in the Winter due to a draft. And I loathe the system of the added Heating plus A/C heating costs that will eventually come from that draft. So I sat out to find it by caulking every gap I could find. Still, the draft was there plus unabated. It dawned on myself and others that I could use that temperature gun to find the leaking Heating plus A/C heating. That’s just what I did. There was a window that wasn’t correctly insulated when the two of us had them all replaced for more energy efficient 1s. While a bit ironic perhaps, it was stealing our Heating plus A/C heating. Thanks to a gag gift, I was able to get my house cozy once more.
