A: It’s freezing in here! Can I turn up the heat?

B: Don’t touch that thermostat! You don’t paythe bills

around here!

A: Dad! Are you serious? What’s the point of having

central heating if we can’t use it! Look, I can see

my breath!

B: Put on a sweater! I’m not gonna let you run up my

heating bill just because it’s a bit chilly.

A: Dad! I’m gonna catch a cold!

B: When I was your age, my parents didn’t have

central heating like you do! We had a furnace

inthe center ofthe living room and that was it. We

used it to cook, heat the house and even dry our

clothes! We never caught a cold. You should be

grateful!
