Yep, it got a might hot in our house two days ago. And the puddle on the floor beneath one of the a/c returns got a might big. I had the choice of calling a plumber or an a/c repairman for help. Opted for the a/c man ... and whaddya know! I was right! I only had to pay an a/c man this time.
$9000 later, we have a new, working unit. Of course, we are $9000 poorer now. Heck we're just flat-out poor.
Rick explained to the repairman that we are poor ... and that we are headed off to Hawaii on Saturday. That nice man gave us a discount of $1000. Thank you, Rick. Next time keep your big mouth shut about heading to Hawaii.
$9000 ... according to EVERYONE I KNOW or have ever met ... is WAY over-priced for an a/c. AND we didn't really get a new one. Just a bunch of new parts.
I am going to Hawaii to rest, recover, relax and FORGET about life in the states.
In case I don't have very good reception on the ship (that's my daughter's excuse for why she doesn't text/call/email very often) I will see you all when I return on the 27th. My daughter will be 27 then, engaged, embarking on a new life ... and I'll still be poor. POORER, in fact, just thinking about a wedding.
