Sometimes having a roommate can be a really good thing. It can be a good thing because then you can split some of your bills in half. They pay half of the rent for example. For another instance having a roommate can be a challenging thing. For an example I have some trouble with my roommate always building up Energy bill each month. She always likes to turn the air conditioning up very high. I always turn it back down but she never says anything to me. So every time I pass the thermostat I make sure to check what temperature the thermostat is set at. I do this to ensure that she did not turn the thermostat back up without telling me. I understand that we split the energy bill however I would like to pay less money than we are now. Our apartment is perfectly fine at the temperature in which I set it at. She goes to the extreme and makes the apartment either really warm or really cold. It is not very comfortable for me to stay in at those temperatures. I wish I could have the thermostat connected to my smartphone. Then I could check the thermostat at all times. I could even check it when I am not home. Then I would know for sure if she were turning the thermostat up or down while I am away. It would definitely help me to control the energy bills that we pay each month a lot more. One day she might give up the game.
