Me: Hello, I'm just wondering if there is something you can do about the temperature in the classroom I teach in.
Facilities Guy: What's the problem?
Me: Well, on Monday it was 60 degrees and everyone was wearing coats. Today it was 85 and could have passed for a sauna.
FG: It's set for 72.
Me: But it is never actually at 72, rather at least 10 degrees in either direction. And there is no way to change it in the room when I get there to determine whether layers need to go on or off.
FG: Yeah, it is centrally set and works on an average.
Me: Allowing a 20 degree standard deviation?
Me: Nothing. Is there any way that we can get it closer to that 72?
FG: You can open windows.
Me: The room doesn't have windows.
FG: Right, then no.
Dude, Fuck. Sigh....
