Husband has to pay energy bill if he wants to touch HVAC

It’s because he insists on messing with the thermostat day in and day out.

There are times in life when it’s not worth fighting over things anymore. At some point, you have to choose your battles and decide what is worth the extra stress of additional conflict. For me, I have a pretty low threshold for bullshit. If you’re going to continually fight me on something, I’m going to walk away and let you make your own bed. This generally works out okay for me, especially when it comes to my husband. He is quite predictable and easy to negotiate with when I lay down The rules. Recently, one of the rules that I put in place was regarding our Energy bill. I told him he would be responsible for paying the electric bill for the foreseeable future. Now, I told him this for a reason. It’s not because he rakes in the big bucks or I’m trying to take advantage of him for our energy usage. It’s because he insists on messing with the thermostat day in and day out. I swear to God, by the time I wake up every morning he is already adjusted the thermostat several times. We have a eco-friendly heating and cooling program set on the smart thermostat for energy efficiency, so every time he engages the air conditioning unit or furnace outside of the defined settings he’s costing us money. I grew tired of squawbling about the stupid thermostat, so I decided to cut right to the chase. I told him he can continue abusing the air conditioning unit and furnace if he wants, but he’ll be paying the energy bill for the rest of our lives.
