^  I have a convertible.  I check the AC every year to see if it's working, and that's about it.  I don't like air-conditioning---not in my car and not in my house.  Like Madawee, being closed up makes me claustrophobic.  I've never understood some peoples' wish to be in a constant state of climate control.  Yeah, it feels good on a hot day to go into air-conditioning...but after I cool off, I wanna go back outside.

I like A/C (even more so at work because of all the electronic sh*t heating up the place even more than the natural warm up), but it's not life support for me like it is for most people down here.  Most everyone I know can't fathom how I can manage a monthly light bill around $100 bucks in the summer.

I typically run my A/C at home (when needed) from 5:15 until about 8:00, with the temp set at 78.  Weekends it runs a little longer since I'm home, say from about 1:00 or 2:00 until 8:00.  I leave it off overnight and while I'm gone. 

With a car though, it's heated up by the sun to about 150 degrees, and down here we have the humidity to boot.  No A/C is a death warrant, even with a convertible.  I don't have one, but you don't see a whole lot of topless cars on the road in the summer months.

^  Yeah, the humidity makes a huge difference.  I'm lucky to have very low humidity (like in the teens) in the summer months here.  100 degrees never "feels like" more than 100 degrees.

Definitely ... in low humidity all you're getting really is heat from the sunlight, not from the thick muggy heat saturated air surrounding you as well.  I'll take 105 degrees outside on the Vegas strip over 90 degrees in the Houston shade every day of the week.

^  That's why our temps can be 60 in the morning, and then rise to 100 by 2pm.  We rarely have any clouds in the summer...and with no cloud coverage, there's nothing to keep heat and moisture trapped near the earth's surface. 
 
Last summer, I was a little more liberal with the air-conditioning, simply to make sure ol' Sneakers wouldn't be too uncomfortable.  At times, I've put the A/C on just so that my computer doesn't overheat.  It's upstairs where it's usually 10 degrees warmer than the downstairs.

Same here. The humidity makes it hard to breathe! I do like to be cool at night or else I can't sleep, but once my husband leaves for work, the thermostat goes from 68 to 78 so I can feel my toes!

What really sucks about summer in Texas is that most establishments feel the need to overcompensate and keep their stores and restaurants about 35 degrees cooler than outside. It makes dressing for the weather impossible. If I wear shorts or a skirt, I'm fine outside, but literally shivering if I try to go somewhere for dinner. Plus, my food gets cold almost immediately. What would be wrong with keeping those places 75-78 in the summer instead of 65? It would be cheaper, more "green," AND 50% of your clientele wouldn't have to keep a damn sweater with them all the time!

ConfusedOnly problem is, on many of those terribly humid Texas days, if an establishment is a dry 75-78 degrees, then you can smell everyone around you. That just isn't always a good thing.

Did you really just respond to a nearly four year old post????

Somehow I don't think you should be expecting a reply to your somewhat belated reply.

Right - no feelings whatsoever. That's why *I* think I123 was prolly posting an opinion, suffered a fatal seizure and on his way out accidentally pressed 'clear form' rather than 'post', which really sucks.

Well something odd happened on Cozi TV today. It was scheduled at 12:00 for Rockford Files to air today. It got as far as the phone ringing and the text "James Garner in" appearing then it switched over to some soap opera that airs on NBC! wTF!? Why do this!? I was so ready to see Rockford Files and they spring this soap opera on viewers for no good reason! This was unscheduled! I might as well buy the DVDs and forget this $#@&!
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

Yeah, this annoys me too. One time someone doing this actually had the nerve to ask "you couldn't have just waited for me to move?" after I said "excuse me" and started walking past him when he moved out of the way. Now, I'm not normally a confrontational person, but THAT reaction prompted me to turn around reply "Sorry, I didn't know how long you planned to stand around being a dick".

I've never had anyone do that to me with their cart sideways, but there has been a time or two where someone had their cart in the middle of the aisle enough so that I couldn't get by and wouldn't move after I said "excuse me" two or three times. At that point I just move their cart out the way myself and screw them if they don't like it.

Big smileEvil SmileIt happens to me, too...and THAT is when I can be the very best asshole I can be. I will come up on it and VERY, VERY LOUDLY, "Excuse me! Other people shopping too! May I pass by?". I don't win friends but I do influence people.
