Is your doctor’s office similar to mine? I have noticed that every single person at the doctor’s office wears a sweater.
- I find it very strange that the doctor insists on having his AC thermostat set so low that everyone is cold.
I asked him about it the last time I was there, because I thought he could perhaps help the environment by running his AC system a little more efficiently. He could turn the thermostat up a few degrees, his patients and employees would be more comfortable, and he would be saving money as well as helping the planet. He kind of chuckled at me and asked me if I remembered basic biology from high school. Well, the fact of the matter is, I rarely paid attention in science classes in school. That’s when he told me that bacteria and viruses, for the most part, thrive on hot humid places. In other words, the more he uses his air conditioning, the less likely it is for me to get sick from the kid across the way who is coughing and hacking into the air. That is when I decided that his employees will just have to be uncomfortable and wear sweaters. I certainly do like the idea of a heating and cooling system keeping the place less germy. In fact, I love that idea! I often carry a sweater in my car so that I can accommodate for extra air conditioning no matter where I’m going. Oh, and I will just have to remember that the AC thermostat is likely to be set pretty low at my doctor’s office so I should go ahead and bring a sweater. I don’t want to wear long sleeves or heavy clothes when I go there, though, because let’s face it that man makes me get on the scale! He did tell me that when he goes home at night he does adjust the AC thermostat to a higher setting so it will run less.
