Today, my grandpa moved into the house to live with my family. Along with having to share a room with him, he swears that having the AC on will give him pneumonia, and he keeps saying he's "freezing" when the temperature inside gets below 85. We live in Nevada. FML

maybe OPs grandpa moved to Nevada from Hawaii. Itd make sense to me because we only have a 10 degree change tolerance. For me , I start shivering by the time it's 70 degrees. The coldest it ever gets here is about 55 degrees, the warmest would be 90 degrees. But you need to take into account the humidity here, it makes everywhere here seem warmer than the temperature. I mean I visited Las vegas once, and I loved the 100 degree weather because it felt like 80 degree weather in Hawaii.

Don't let him dictate how things work in your own room. Just because he's older, doesn't mean he should be able to make you live how he wants. It was your room long before it was his.

There is also such a thing as being understanding and respecting your elders. A better solution would be to talk in a reasonable manner to the grandfather and reach a compromise.

#30 yes and no, you should also be willing to accommodate your guest, and being that he's also your elder, you shouldn't make such a fuss. It'd be annoying for OP yes, but having consideration is part of having respect for others.

I dont how that state ia, but being in Miami with no AC is horrible... My house gets so stuffy that the hot, humid air outside is a better alternative... And humidity triggers my asthma so that just shows how much I hate being in my house in that situation
