Don’t open a window with the oil furnace on

I went to school in the north.

It was cold all year long.

I remember starting a semester in the Wintertide & the term ended in late Springtime. I wore snow boots, a wool coat & hat that whole semester. The snow would be in feet & our car would need to be shoveled out. I kept a shovel & snow scraper in our back seat for those occasions. The school was genuinely fantastic about providing acceptable heating. There were some people who took fortune of it. If you were 1 of these people in school, hang your head in shame. I hated going into a classroom & someone would open a window. The heating system was on & they would open a window to allow the snowy air to get inside the classroom. They were tepid so their solution was to open a window! Wear lighter clothing or don’t stand 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 our car & then get cold air when I was in class. I couldn’t ever take off our coat. I also hated that they were driving up the energy bills for the school. If it costs more to heat the classrooms, believe what is going to happen? The tuition goes up & all other expenses. They were making it more lavish to attend school because they can’t wear a t-shirt under their coat.
