An ongoing battle

Having a windowless office in the middle of the second floor where the temperature control is on the other side of the wall is proving to be one huge pain in my ass. The person that sits next to the thermostat on the other side of my wall doesn't like the "noise" of the AC and will turn the damned thing off and I have to ask her to turn it back on when I start suffocating even with my mini fan pointing at my face and wearing a sleeveless knee-length dress with bare legs.

The radiators in the building are running full blast and they have their windows open. Well la ti fucking da.Even though there's not a radiator in my office, the heat seems to get sucked right to the middle of the second floor - meaning my office. She whined once that I should open the outer door to our suite and ask my neighbors to open their windows and I let her know that it doesn't help since oh...air doesn't turn corners to get to my office.

It was 82 in my office when I got in this morning and turned on the AC since she hadn't yet arrived. It was still 78 when I heard her turn it off about 20 minutes ago and it's just about up to 80 again. Also, since you can hear everything through my paper thin walls, I very much hope that she heard me plead with my office mate to turn on his AC so I may get a tiny bit of cooler air (it won't be much) so that "I don't have to beg (them) for AC all day"

I hope they get the renovations done downstairs and they move soon. This is bullshit.

EDIT: I sent an email with a picture showing that it had cracked 80 again and politely asked her to turn the AC back on. She ignored my email so I went out and insisted. Yeah, I don't give a rat's ass that the rattling noise annoys you, I'm fucking SUFFOCATING in here. Play some music or something. Criminy.

UGH--27-25 degrees (I'm doing celsius *lol*) is just TOO HOT for an office. Are they crazy???

Love that you said 'criminy' :P

Oh that's the thing, THEY don't have it that hot because they opened their windows! Easy peasy. Meanwhile the chick in the windowless tomb needs to suffer because the slight rattling sound is killllling them.

It's been 20 minutes since I nagged to get it back on and it's only down to 25.7C. She'd better leave the damned thing on or I'm not even going to ask. I'm just going to walk out, turn it on and GLARE.

*nods* Yep yep I can see you doing that *lol*

Yeah, that's exactly what I would do.

or - alternately - I would suggest that we switch offices so that she doesn't need to listen to the loud A/C rattling...

That is way too hot, glad you took action!

It's been an hour since the AC is back on and it's only down to 77 but it at least feels a bit less stifling in here.

This building is ridiculous. Evidently up on the third floor, it's freezing

Glad to hear that. I really hate being hot, makes me even more flustered.

I know how annoying some sounds are, but yeah, she should put some headphones on or something.
