I’m tired of complaining about how much electricity my husband’s reptiles use up.
Each one of them needs special heaters and lighting and they all cost a lot of money to run.
Additionally, all of those heaters and light make the house very warm and uncomfortable. I try to save money by not turning on the air conditioner very often, for myself, but I shouldn’t have to do that. Then, last weekend, my husband came home with yet another snake from the reptile expo. Just what we needed, another reptile with more reptile lights in this house. I don’t know why I bother trying to save money, by not using the air conditioning, if he’s going to go out and keep spending money on reptiles. It is not like a one-time purchase either. Like I said, each reptile needs its own light and heat and it costs money to run all of that. While he set up the tank for the new snake, I cranked the air conditioner on and decided to enjoy the nice cool air. When he was done setting up the snake, my husband went to turn the thermostat down a little bit and he got an earful from me. All of his snakes get their own comfortable temperature settings. I think I deserve the same. My husband did not argue about that at all. I guess he knows better than that. It would not take much for me to put him, and all of his reptiles, on the street. Then I would have my house comfortable, and snake free; just the way I like it.
