I absolutely could not be living in a house that has the heat on to anything about 72 (and that is pushing it, my ideal would probably be 65-69 degrees).
There is absolutely nothing worse than feeling like you're boiling from the inside out... feel super stifling hot and uncomfortable. And I like to dress in pants and shirts and a sweatshirt in the colder months, and am quite unwilling to change that habit.
I'd rather be freezing my butt off than be super hot.
Obviously people should be meeting somewhere in the middle. What degree is the thermostat at anyways?
And, I like how you say it's ignorant and selfish for the 3 people (majority rule) to have the heat low/off just because you can't get your way. You wouldn't be saying that if it was your way and the other people were really hot.
And no, it is not easier to cool off than it is to stay warm. There are plenty of things you can do, like dress in layers, and buy a better space heater and have an electric blanket at night or when lounging around the house.
What exactly can a person that is unbearably hot do? Wear less clothes and still feel really hot? Both sides have fair arguments and in this case majority rules, which sucks for you.
