Turn off the light! Why is it so hard for everyone to turn off the light when they leave the room? Why is it so hard to open the blinds or curtains in the morning, instead of turning on the light? Please explain, what is it that I’m missing? I’m starting to get tired of always asking.

  • When I was a kid my dad drilled into Me to turn off the light so I’m so used to it. I now do that to my kids. Good luck.

  • I wake up, sit up and open the blinds, then I go into the lounge and dining rooms and open the blinds. They all look at me like I’m the crazy one!!! … I hear you :)

  • You’re not missing anything! It’s just the norm! I’ve read them the riot act so often, I’m hoarse! So, now I’ve resorted to bribery! Explaining that switching off the lights saves us money, which will mean I will have more to spend on them! Lol!

  • When you get the answer to that question I can’t wait to here it either.. Everyone other than me in my household seem to like artificial light more than natural light
