Whilst I love her to bits, there are things she does which drive me mad
She has this complete disregard for energy costs. The way that she wastes it makes me wonder where she thinks it cones from.........maybe it's free, maybe it grows on trees??
She will often get home in the evening, put the porch light on, then the hallway light, and then just leave them!!!
Another favourite is to leave the door from the kitchen to the hall open. Being an old house, the kitchen is an additional structure, and is by far the coldest room in the place. Yet she will always manage to leave the door open so that all of the lovely freezing air fills the house, thus wasting all of the heat that has built up during the day!
The latest blatent waste of money is a corker......she will go into the bathroom in the morning, turn the shower on, and then proceed to spend 3/4 minutes brushing her teeth with the shower still going
Her reasoning for this.....'the water needs to heat up'
It takes 10-15 seconds for the shower to heat up, no different to turning on the hot water tap. It's a ridiculous waste of money, and as I pay for the majority of all household bills, I feel my rant is justified!!
