Don’t open a window with the heater on

I went to college in the north. It was cold all year long. I remember starting a semester in the winter and the term ended in late spring. I wore snow boots, a wool coat and hat that whole semester. The snow would be in feet and my car would need to be shoveled out. I kept a shovel and snow scraper in my back seat for those occasions. The college was really good about providing adequate heating. There were some people who took advantage of it. If you were one of these people in college, hang your head in shame. I hated going into a classroom and someone would open a window. The heating system was on and they would open a window to allow the snowy air to get inside the classroom. They were hot so their solution was to open a window! Wear lighter clothing or don’t sit right by the window. The radiators would be by the windows which meant they had the best access to heat. Those idiots! I would get blasted with cold air the moment I walked from my car and then get cold air when I was in class. I couldn’t ever take off my coat. I also hated that they were driving up the energy bills for the college. If it costs more to heat the classrooms, guess what is going to happen? The tuition goes up and all other expenses. They were making it more expensive to attend college because they can’t wear a t-shirt under their coat.
