Hello, my name is Megan and I. HATE. CFLs. Hate them. With a passion you cannot imagine. I don’t even care that it’s completely (mostly) irrational and environmentally irresponsible. Call me the Anti-Green, I don’t care. I’ll just recycle more bottles to make up for my bad carbon lighting footprint.
Can you imagine the horror I felt when I moved in with my then-boyfriend only to discover that he’d replaced every single bulb in the house with those ugly, ucky CFLs (compact fluorescent lights)? It was only out of respect for the money he’d spent that I didn’t change them all back.
But I wanted to. Badly.
I still want to, every time I look up at the ceiling fan and see them sticking out of the shades. I just want to take a stick and poke them, so they’ll break and I can replace them with conventional bulbs.
Why do I hate them so much?
Why, thank you so much for asking. I’ll be glad to enlighten you on the topic.
