Hot or Cold

Here mothers will sometimes dress their children in ridiculous amounts of clothes. Four layers on a day where it's maybe 50 degrees on the inside. The kids are hot and therefore will request the AC. This offends my Captain Planet raised sense of conservation of resources and usually an argument will ensue something like this.

Kid: Teacher, I'm hot.
Me: How many?
Kid: pointing at clothing: 3 (or 4 sometimes)
Me: Take off your sweater (or shirt)
Kid: No!
Me: Then you're not hot.
Kid: Teacher I'm hot.

Now some of them, curse them, think it's funny and will start this whole exchange on purpose.english
