They said “RV” but they meant “pop up camper”

You have to be careful when people are passing along information. You really never know if they are speaking with accuracy or if they are terrible communicators. Oftentimes, I find that people say things they absolutely don’t mean. This can cause a lot of troubles down the line, when you both have to come to the conclusion that a mistake was made. Recently, this happened in regards to my friends and a camping trip that we agreed to go on. When they said they wanted to go camping, I was worried about the outdoor air temperature. It’s the dead of Summer here and we have oppressive heat and humidity to deal with. Being out in the woods without air conditioning, surrounded by mosquitoes all night didn’t sound like fun to me. I didn’t want to try to sleep in the oppressive semi tropical climates. Luckily, they said it was covered, right down to the AC. They had told me that they were renting an RV which would easily fit everybody for the duration of the camping trip. We wouldn’t have to worry about the outdoor air quality so much, because we would have modern amenities and plenty of shelter. It turns out, this was not exactly the case. While I was imagining an RV with a full-blown air conditioning system and backup generator to power the cooling unit, they were renting a pop-up camper. When we arrived at the campsite, I saw the open air camper and could imagine how hot and humid it was inside. I didn’t even have to experience the terrible air quality before I made my decision. I simply shook my head, picked up my backpack, and climbed back into my air-conditioned car to go home.
