But then I caught him writing down the brand of thermostat that we have and so I know he’s going to go and purchase one just like it
I know that this sounds a little bit crazy, but my brother Eric is jealous over the new smart thermostat system that we had installed a few weeks ago. Honestly, I think that my brother would be jealous of practically anything that I have, given the chance. He’s just a jealous person. It’s not a good trait to have, and I wish that I could help him get over it but he doesn’t really even recognize that jealousy is a problem that he has. The most recent thing that he’s having issues over is our new smart thermostat, of all things. He was at our house for dinner the other night and my wife was adjusting the temperature on our new smart thermostat from her smartphone. When he asked her what she was doing, she showed him the app on her smartphone and how it connects to the thermostat. She was simply telling him how cool it is to be able to adjust the heating and the air conditioning from her phone and he actually got mad about it. I could tell he was annoyed by his facial expressions and the way he kept rolling his eyes. But then I caught him writing down the brand of thermostat that we have and so I know he’s going to go and purchase one just like it. It’s so childish of him, but I guess that’s just how he is. Being mad about a smart thermostat is the dumbest thing that I’ve ever heard of, but leave it to my brother to make it into a problem.
