Yeah, yeah. The environment. Whatever. I’d cut back on electricity and such, except that my landlord pays the electric bill. Since we pay him the same amount of rent every month, cutting back on electricity just means I’m not getting my money’s worth (he cited rising electric costs as one of the reasons our rent increased at the beginning of the year), and I’m putting extra money in his pocket. Which I will not have. Absolutely not.
Besides… I do pay my own gas bill. Turning off the lights or plugging in CFLs just means less wasted heat. I rely on that wasted heat to keep my furnace from running all day long in the winter. I don’t wanna pay for that crap. So hurray for inefficiency!
