Question of the day

    Off. I am a bit compulsive about this.

  2. Joy says:

    I’m right there with you SKL. I don’t even like the lights on when I need them and most of my ceiling fans have half of them unscrewed. I love the brightness of the sun but hate the bright of lights.

    Lights on a room with no one in it bothers me a little, even in others homes I find myself turning them off much to their irritation and my surprise. I do it automatically without thinking.

  4. Sue says:

    I usually turn them off unless I’m home alone and feel lonely. Then I’ll leave them on! What I hate more than lights left on in a room where no one is is the TV left on when no one is watching it!!!!!

  5. Just a Mom says:

    I turn off the lights but I am guilty of leaving the tv on even if I’m not watching it. I just have to have background noise in the house.

  6. Joy says:

    Sue, I’m so right there with you with the tv left on. I can’t stand that. I would so much rather have quiet or the radio.

    I’m the same way. At our house, I’m the electricity police. Drives my husband insane because he’ll leave his garage with lights burning, and I’ll notice no one is in there and shut them all off. He’ll return a short while later, grumbling all the way.

    My family is the worst for leaving lights on. I am constantly walking around turning lights, tv, radios, you name it off. Sometimes I think they do it just to annoy me. 🙂

  9. Mary says:

    Like everyone here, I turn them off too. I write out the electric bill every month, so I’m very conscious of the cost. How many of those who’ve responded make the electric bill payment?

  10. Joy says:

    I don’t pay the bills Mary. I’m to scatterbrained.

  11. SKL says:

    I don’t even look at the utility bills. I live with people who are wasteful, so the bills make me kinda sick. They, of course, think I am just bitchy and obsessive. We used to get into fights and it would get really ugly. So now, it’s one of those things I force out of my mind each time it enters.

    I follow people around and turn out lights if they leave them on. I am a light freak. I used to have the TV on all the time. I have finally broken myself of that habit. Now I am always turning it off and from somewhere in the house I will hear someone yell ” I was watching that”. My son will also open the door to the fridge and just stare into as if snacks are going to magically appear.
