THE annual bitter conflict over what temperature the air conditioning should be set at has begun in offices across Britain.
As the days grow warmer, battle lines are being drawn over whether it is better to sit in a noxious fug of other people’s BO or have to bring in a jumper and fingerless gloves.
Data inputter Tom Logan said: “The air-conditioning Nazis want me to freeze my bollocks off while looking out of the window at the lovely warm weather.
“If you change the temperature by even a degree they suddenly appear at your desk to ‘just mention it to you’ in a friendly but menacing way, like the Mafia giving you a warning before they ‘whack’ you.
“The actual winter was long enough without perpetuating it indoors. I’d honestly rather put up with the mingled smell of 25 sets of armpits.”
Colleague Nikki Hollis said: “Any hint of warm weather means the air conditioning must immediately be set to very cold. Tom made his position clear when he suggested I could cool down by spinning round very fast in my chair.
“This disrespectful attitude will be dealt with, possibly by turning the air-con down so low his fingers freeze and snap off.”
