The whole thing was just dumb
The thermostat kept changing on its own for some reason and so I blamed my wife. Usually she does not mess around with the settings on the thermostat very much, but this time I really thought that it was her. She’s not very picky when it comes to the temperature settings in the house most of the time, and so she leaves it up to me to do all of that kind of thing. I had our digital programmable thermostat settings just where I wanted them. The heating levels were perfect and the air conditioning levels were perfect too. The thermostat is a smart thermostat, and so it was learning exactly the right levels to keep our home at. So when the temperature settings started going up and down, it made me pretty mad. Nobody else lives with us, so I knew that it had to be my wife doing it because it certainly wasn’t me! When I asked her about it, she said that she had not touched the thermostat unit at all. At that point, I felt that she was just lying to me. We ended up getting into a big fight about it, and usually we don’t fight at all. The whole thing was just dumb. But believe me, I had to do a whole lot of apologizing to her whenever we figured out that the problem was that the thermostat’s batteries were low. I had no idea that it was time to change the batteries and the thermostat. The only way that we ever realized it was even a problem was when the temperature settings kept going up and down.
