Almost all men and women do not realize this, but when you first set off to college for your freshman year there are so various things that you end up learning about yourself and others, and during my first year living on campus I thought that I knew what I liked and what I didn’t enjoy since I lived with other siblings back at at my parents house, however living in a tiny dorm with a stranger undoubtedly opened my eyes to things! My first roommate ever was a seemingly sweet girl named Linda! At first I thought that me as well as Linda were going to be good friends that stayed in contact even after college was over, however when the first heat wave hit my local neighborhood and the two of us had our first fight about the air conditioner settings I could tell that she wasn’t as sweet as I thought, then i have never been a fan of air conditioner unless it is clearly needed such as in situations enjoy the a single that the two of us were in.
Therefore I was more than willing to have the air conditioner running at a medium setting, however Linda wanted to have the air conditioner running at the highest setting for the rest of the night; When I tried to talk to her about this and see if the two of us would be able to come to a mutual agreement she ended up going on a 5-hour tangent about how annoying I was and that I better drop it “or else”.
Despite the fact that it wasn’t a gracious way of doing it, her tactic absolutely got myself and others to back off for the rest of the day! Once the year over I was lucky enough to be able to transfer to a different dorm and have a less controlling roommate. I may have my preferences about air conditioners, even though I will never live anywhere where I might get beaten up if I do not succumb to the preferences of others like I could have with Linda!
