Sounding like old guy over thermostat

Every now & again, I genuinely sound just like my old man.

Were he around to hear me disclose that, he’d be overjoyed.

That’s because when he would holler at me for messing with the thermostat, I was consistently like but it’s only air conditioning! His response was consistently the same. He’d put the thermostat setting back where he wanted it first. Then, he’d threaten me with immense trouble if I moved it again. Of course, I would repeat that it’s only air conditioning & he’d launch into the costs of taking care of a family. Once the sermon would come to a close, he would tell me to just wait until I had a family of my own. Well, Mom left us way too early but at least he got to see two of his three grandchildren get born. He was so proud of me being a homeowner & a family man. But he’d sure get a kick out of hearing me holler at my own adolescents when it comes to the thermostat setting. For sure, Mom was spot on when it comes to all it takes to supply for a family. And this generation has a bunch of added costs mine didn’t. So I have to be so on top of all our property costs in order to maintain the property budget & keep us out of the red. It was legitimately funny the other afternoon when my son used the line on me that I once used on my Mom. When I heard his say but it’s only air conditioning, I sort of smiled inside. I could just feel my Mom laughing his head off because I now know exactly what he was talking about.
