Things that are generally accepted by the public at large as being appropriate to Raise:
- Hell (figuratively)
- The Roof
- The temperature on the thermostat (in winter)
Things that are NOT generally accepted by the public at large as being appropriate to Raise:
- The Dead
- Hell (literally)
- The temperature on the thermostat (in the summer. Come on, what are you thinking? It’s already sweltering!)
“Taxes” is a more contentious point, with regard to raising or not raising, and the subject of whether they should or should not be raised should not be brought up in polite company, either pro or con, unless you are willing to deal with the resultant animated debate.
Many are not, and this is perfectly understandable. Life is, after all, short, and you do not want to spend more of yours than you have to locked in debate about political topics you genuinely possess little in the way of power to influence in the real world.
To this end, I’ll add “The subject of whether to raise taxes” to the list of things you might NOT want to raise, for the sake of clarity.
But definitely the roof. It’s almost the weekend and, moreover, I am very tall and tend to hit my head on things, so you’ll definitely want to raise the roof...
