Q: I know it’s hot outside, but my neighbors keep their house like a meat freezer in the summer, and I’m uncomfortable when I visit. Can I ask them to cool it with the AC?
A: It’s not polite to fool around with the thermostat at someone else’s home. But you can come prepared for the arctic freeze with a sweater. Your neighbors may even take the hint and turn down the air. If not, you can always invite them to your more temperate home.
