It's really hot, aka I hate my roommate

    I moved into this house as the third of three roommates. So the utilities were $100 a month each. One moved out a couple months later, but the remaining one won't let me pay $150 to make up the difference. She says since I'm on the road, I shouldn't pay half. Which is fine.

    Except on days like today. It's 91 degrees, and our a/c is not on because it costs too much. So I'm sitting here, with the one window in my room that opens open, pouring sweat. But I can't MAKE her turn it on if I'm not even paying half, you know?

    I've had the convo with her and it ends somewhere near "I don't want to turn it on yet, it's only May..."

    Anyone else sweltering?

    I'm a little hot, but I'm like your roommate; I don't want to use the AC. So I opened my balcony door, and the other windows might follow suit soon. Of course, it's hot air outside, so the only thing that'll cool me off are the planes going over my house.

    If I can avoid it, I don't use my air conditioning. A friend of mine will visit in a month, and she'll want the air on, but until then, it'll be off. I didn't use my heat for both the winters I spent in Pennsylvania. I took on a second job and made nice with my neighbors, which helped me get through the winter.

    Best of luck.

    F that. Turn the AC on. If the roommate tries to turn it off or says something about it, let her know you'll pay more whether she likes it or not. It doesn't matter if it's May or August or December. If you're hot, turn on the AC.

    80 here. A few passing clouds. Just back from a five-mile hike in the mountains, where it was a bit cooler -- and crowded. Might hit 85 tomorrow and as usual, the air is dry.
