I have recently noticed something about myself that I find mildly amusing if not just plain weird.
I have always set my digital thermostat in my home on odd numbers: 75 or 77 in the summer, 67 or 69 in the winter. And if the house gets too hot or too cold, I always adjust the thermostat up or down by 2 degrees, never one, ensuring that the thermostat is always set on an odd number.
Last year I purchased a new car, a Nissan Murano. This was the first vehicle I have owned that has a digital thermostat for the HVAC system. Last week I observed the oddest thing. I always, without fail, set the thermostat in the car to an even number. In fact, I noticed this when I accidentally left the thermostat on an odd number and, upon realizing my hapless error, immediately re-adjusted it to an even number.
Odd numbers for the house, even numbers for the car. . .whatever does it mean?
