I don’t think people will stop giving me their old thermostats

I honestly don’t understand why a lot of people always believe that I need a thermostat.

For some reason, people are regularly giving me their old thermostats.

I actually used to have a legitimately old thermostat, but I decided to get rid of that thermostat years ago. I had a dial thermostat for our furnace and for our central cooling appliance. At one point in time, I had to have two separate thermostats for our HVAC equipment because the model that I had was not very good. It wasn’t as though I was too poor to be able to afford a better thermostat. I just didn’t want to update these thermostats until they entirely quit working. There is sincerely no point in spending money to update a working thermostat. I actually work from my property, and not having a thermostat that could be programmed didn’t actually bother me. However, once our thermostats eventually quit working, I bought a truly expensive thermostat… My friends kept forgetting that I changed our thermostats, so they have been constantly giving myself and others their thermostats when they decide to upgrade. My friends upgrade their thermostats every couple of years, and I have a fairly large collection. I tell them that I already have a nice thermostat, but they regularly insist… At times, I suppose that they are just using myself and others to get rid of their junk, and they suppose I will take the thermostats no matter what. I have nothing to do with them, so I have been selling the thermostats for extra cash on the side. Honestly, I hope that they don’t stop giving them to me. It has been a pretty nice treat! Every once in awhile, I will get a nicer thermostat and change them out. It is fantastic!
