    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.

    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.

    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...

    Happiness is what everybody is craving for. Reality of life is nobody is happy. You are happy when you are content with what you have.
