In a shocking announcement that will have repercussions for thermostat watching dads everywhere, 45-year-old Will Spears has reportedly agreed, after numerous entreaties from his wife and children, to raise the set temperature in his home up to a balmy 68 degrees.
Spears, who normally maintains a sensible 66 degree temperature, bumping it up to 67 when it is particularly drafty in the house, insists that he did not make this decision lightly.
“Listen, I know that I’m going to get a lot of blowbacks from dads everywhere. 68 degrees? What is this, Hawaii? But I had come down with a bit of the flu, and the wife and kids kept going on about me turning up the thermostat, and, well, I figured what’s the harm of a one-time thing?”
While Spears claims to not regret his decision, he has told all of his friends that, “68 degrees? Too hot. You never want your thermostat to go that high. Trust me.”
