My dad used to say…

Today one of my students was complaining, “It’s too hot in here.”

I told her, “My daddy used to say, ‘It’s not hot; you’re hot.”

Know my my dad says now? It’s hot in here.

    wouldn’t the “it” in “it’s hot” refer to the air, the temperature, the general condition of the room?

    yes. his point was that air was the right temperature, but i felt hot on my own. although usually it was my complaining that it was cold, and his saying ‘it’s not cold; you’re cold.’
    what he really meant was, ‘i don’t want to pay to run the air conditioner or heater.’
    now what he means is ‘wife, did you turn the heater on? i don’t want to pay for that.’
