Today, it's -5°C outside and snowing and it's only September. If that wasn’t bad enough, we aren't allowed to have the heat on at work due to a menopausal monster who loses her shit and throws things if we turn it on. I can't feel my toes. FML

I totally agree!! I'm pre-menopausal & have horrific raging hot flashes at work.
But I would never make my coworkers suffer in the cold for my comfort.
Thankfully I have a job where they let me run outside in the cool air when this happens.

When Metric and Imperial collide.

I generally believe in keeping shared spaces to the coolest temp preferred, and the folks who want to be warmer dress heavier or use a space heater. But this sounds a lot more extreme than the typical "15 vs 25" battle. Below freezing and no heat is nuts.
And getting one's way by throwing shit? That sort of workplace behavior should not be rewarded!
Get Ms Sweaty a fan or a wee A/C maybe? Ice packs? Is it the sort of job where she could telecommute? Surely there is some option that would work. The boss is a loser for not finding a reasonable solution to this.

This is work place harassment and abuse you need to report her stupid ass,have a mass walkout and see how fast her attitude changes when her boss or the owner shows up 🤔😈

As someone who is suffering from thyroid disease, hot flashes are real and the heat alone can make one cranky. I'm not saying she's right to do what she's doing but when it's cold, you can always put on more layers but when you're getting hot, you can't take off more than your skin. And she can't get naked at work.
