How do her needs outweigh the needs of the rest of the office?! Turn the heat on and the bitch can get an icepack or something.
Exactly my thought at first but I wondered if the monster was the boss/manager? Might be the reason why everyone listens to her...
It should always be 19 degrees inside. Anyone who wants it warmer or colder can either put on clothes or get an icepack or something.
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.
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.
