How much English does one require to understand "Don't *goshdarn* touch this thing!"  Correct him in the act one time, and "no speak the English" is no longer a valid excuse.

If he is so cold all the time why did he pick Pittsburgh to live in?

Another stupid question, why doesn't some just go and change it back? Call it cost savings.

1. good question
2. just being too nice i guess.  intraoffice infighting is certainly annoying.

If that doesn't work, try slapping him on the nose with a rolled up newspaper or magazine the next time you catch him doing it.

Is rubbing their nose in their own fecal matter approved or frowned upon these days?

Does it make a difference if they're immigrants?

I second the lockbox idea (assuming you install your own lockbox and don't involve facilities).

Can you remove pieces from/disable the thermostat and store them in your desk, so that his changes don't have any effect but you can still change the temp?  Obviously allowing access to those parts to your other coworkers. *

I've been in a few workplaces like this and some people ended up getting space heaters but then got in trouble for fire safety reasons.


*or maybe give 1 piece to each coworker so that all pieces must be present to change the setting.

I think Clive nailed.  If the dude has a PHD, I don't care what his native tongue is, he'll understand: "Dude!  Don't *fudge*in' touchy el knob-o?  Capisce, Kimosabe?"

i appreciate everyone's comments. im going to discuss this with the other people, we'll decide whether to take it straight to our boss or give the offender a (nice polite) verbal confrontation.

i really can't be bothered with it, i have too much work and posting to do
