I work in DC, not Antarctica
Why must offices be super cold all the time? Right now, it’s a pleasant 65ºF outside. Despite this, the air-conditioner is on full blast. Papers on my desk are swaying from the wind coming from the ceiling vents. Swaying! There is no need for indoor wind! I am wearing four layers of clothing and fingerless gloves as I type this. Is this really necessary?! I don’t think so. Everyone is dressed for winter while inside and must shed their layers when venturing outdoors. There is no need for sweaters and gloves in late April, unless you work in one of these retarded office buildings.
