Wife’s neighbor is a poor influence, temperature control abuse

I really try to let my wifey do whatever she wants.

I don’t want to ever be the source of additional stress or strain in her life. When my good friend and I signed on to be married to one another, I expected to be a positive force in her life. However, not all of her social associations can say the same thing. In fact, I guess her best neighbor is a detriment to my wifey’s long term happiness, our family security, plus our indoor air quality. If this seems like a stretch, let me explain. You see, my wifey has known her best neighbor for over 20 years. They come from extremely unusual economic backgrounds plus I guess that this is rarely taken into account. Every time my wifey plus her neighbor meet up there is some long discussion about indoor air quality, temperature control, plus high-tech gadgets to improve indoor comfort standards. I’m as interested in new technology as the next person, however when it comes to our heating plus cooling system there have to be some practical decisions. My friend and I are not extremely wealthy plus my good friend and I cannot afford brand new heating, cooling, plus ventilation systems. Our forced air furnace is 10 years outdated plus the a/c unit is 15. My friend and I do our best to keep the heating plus cooling implements operational, let alone trying to afford a brand new indoor air handling device. However, this doesn’t stop my wifey’s best neighbor from always mentioning the indoor air temperature. Every time she comes over to visit my wifey winds up changing the temperature control settings a dozen times. After her neighbor leaves the temperature control obsession persists. I don’t want to ban her neighbor from the house, however I’m sleepy of dealing with high utility bills plus excessive wear-and-tear on the Heating plus A/C system.
