So I’m sitting here playing games on my computer. And I’m listening to the freaking AC. And it’s running and running and running and I think, “Hmmm, it’s not stopping, maybe I better turn it up a little.”
I go over to the thermostat and it says it’s set at 77. And the temp in here is 78.
That’s odd. Usually it can keep that high fairly efficiently.
I set it to 79. I look out to see if the condensation water needs emptying. I notice the outside unit isn’t even on. I go out and empty the nearly empty bucket.
The Hubs is napping.
Let me just pause here and say this morning I was feeling a little not hateful toward this house. I’ll admit it, it’s been building for a few days. I was thinking, “you know what, when the things we’re waiting on start happening, I am going to make an effort to like this house.”
Yeah, that’s freaking over. I am back to full-on hatred of this dump.
I mean seriously. We have been waiting, somewhat patiently, for a new AC system since MAY.
WTF is even happening to this world.
I get it, instant gratification is bad. Fine. But MAY. This is going on TWELVE weeks of waiting. Meanwhile we have shelled out an extra $500 when a capacitor (or whatever) blew. Now it looks like it’s happened again.
I’m coming to grips with the fact I have woken up in an alternate reality where everything is way more expensive and way more unavailable. Fine. Have your freaking fun with it. Pay $5 a gallon for gas, buy your environment-killing electric car, get yourself some 15% efficiency solar panels. Have at it. Save your planet.
Me? I trust God has the planet all taken care of. He likes when we ask to help, but don’t delude yourself, He does not need you to put up a wind turbine to save His planet.
But I digress.
The point is, my freaking AC is out. Again. I have paid an assload of money for a new system that is apparently sitting in someone’s warehouse waiting for a length of copper tubing.
Are you freaking kidding me? Get your ass over here and install the parts you DO have.
I turned up my ceiling fan.
How much you want to bet it eventually crashes to the floor?
I freaking HATE this house.
