Try Did You?
I thought that maybe I could cool the room down before my meeting started. I assumed the thermostat would be covered by a clear locked box and wasn't surprised when I found it that way. The counter-culture hacker in me said, "maybe you can pry it off or pick the lock." So, I figured I should at least give it try and wiggle the plastic cover.
It came right off the wall.
And I turned the thermostat down a few degrees.
And everyone in my meeting was happier for the not-so-stuffy-anymore room.
All because I questioned my assumptions and ignored my expectations of failure. Or maybe it was my Jedi mind-powers that unlocked the plastic cover over the thermostat. Who knows.
