    No One Is In the Room

    At work, I constantly walk by the small mailroom when no one is there and would see the lights on.  I used to turn them off but I've just given up.  I don't care.  It's not my electric bill.

    Even though we live in  a basement we DO have glass block windows and they  allow ample lighting in the day light........so why does Jim insist on having lights on even in broad day light?   At night is when  I get in the most trouble.    I go behind him turning off...

    Geez

    One of my pet peeves! I hate when people waste energy like that. I also hate it when they leave doors open, cabinets open, toilet  lid (and seat) up, and when they don't shut the water completely off. STOP BEING LAZY AND WASTEFUL!  (I feel better...

    I Preserve Energies

    Sometimes I find a buncha lights on in the kitchen and hall. Sometimes people leave the bathroom light on. So as I walk by I shut lights off. I preserve energies. Even if they don't realize it.

    I'd like to know what you're turn offs are, I find it interesting how one person's turn on can be another person's turn off.
