Lights on or off ? Now as far as I am aware this is a subject that divides men and women almost equally , some like to turn them off when finished with and some like them left on in some instances so they don’t have the arduous task of turning them back on again , must be difficult for some people really ..lol how much energy would it take to turn a light off honestly ? It seems though for many years there is this argument to turn off or not to turn off ? Before you laugh too hard this is a serious question to some people , it can cause friction if either the husband or the wife leaves it on and they shouldn’t seems silly to some people to argue over something this silly but trust me some couples do .
I am sure you all know that marriages can be in trouble sometimes over the silliest things and this is 1 of those silly things .Totally amazing to me is that things this small can cause all sorts of trouble , I mean really ? What difference can it make light on or off except for when going to sleep or going out ? How can something this trivial cause so much trouble ? I mean we are supposed to A be in love, B be adults , C setting a good example to kids , and other things yet we get our knickers in a knot over a light either not turned off or 1 that is turned off …sheeesh ya can’t win sometimes with people . wonder if it’s even possible ? lol dunno about that .Seriously though woman leaves a room turns light off to save power , hubby comes in turns light back on , finishes what he is doing walks out leaves light on…uh oh …wife comes back sees light left on turns it off , goes crook at hubby and here we have another argument ….see how easy it is to start a fight ?
Seriously though can leaving a light on during the day make that much difference to the power bill ? Does it take more power to turn it on again as the power surges back into the light ? I have never quite worked out yes or no so maybe some genius can tell me if so .It is the same as turning a car motor off for a few mins at a stop or letting it idle , does it or doesn’t it use more petrol in a surge when re starting ? So here we have 2 things very similar without either having a definitive answer so come on you geniuses work it out and tell me , it will give you something to do, lol, does it or does it not save power to turn off , then re start or better to leave it on ? ..lol
Now take my husband ( please ) lol he is a terror for leaving all the lights on no matter what room he is in , if he is home long enough at a time I find myself running round behind him turning lights off all day . Somedays I just want to kick his bum get so sick of lights on all over the house , all I can think of is the money for the power bill , but he doesn’t seem worried at all but I worry because I have to balance the books . Whenever we talk about this he just says ” yes dear ” and all is well for about ohhh maybe 5 mins lol then he’s back to what he calls normal , lol normal ? him ? nahh never going to happen , hasn’t yet so not holding my breath anytime soon lol ( sorry dear ) no not really you drive me nuts with this lol .
My husband said he wanted to see the world, so I bought him an atlas.
